Belinda was most recently on the executive team of E.ON, one of the UK’s biggest retail energy companies. She has spent more than a decade in Director roles across industries, consistently delivering revenue growth and improving client relations.
Beyond these successes, Belinda has also held non-executive positions on the boards of nationally recognised brands and sector-wide initiatives, advising on marketing strategy, the formation of charitable trusts and grant distribution. Her influence and leadership has seen her previous organisations excel and expand, making her a vital asset following Birketts’ recent merger with London-based firm EC3 Legal. She joins at an exciting time for the firm, having moved to 60th in The Lawyer’s Top 100 rankings and reaching a record annual turnover of almost £60m.
Jonathan Agar, Chief Executive Officer at Birketts, said: “Belinda’s appointment comes at a pivotal moment for Birketts and could not be timelier. We are a business gathering unparalleled momentum through one of the most challenging trading conditions in living memory, and this progress will only benefit from the influence and experience of a Director who has a track record delivering revenue growth.
Consistently implementing the right strategy at the right time has led Belinda through a successful career and through multiple business sectors to her position at Birketts. I have no doubt she will continue to excel and help us to even greater heights.”
Commenting on her appointment, Belinda said: “I’m delighted to join Birketts and the exceptional calibre of Directors already leading the firm with Jonathan and Senior Partner James Austin. Having spent my career promoting the values of transparency and trust in brands it is a privilege to work within a business that holds these at the centre of their mission for their clients. I am excited to help Birketts onto even greater successes.”
