Lisa Pelling has been promoted to senior HR advisor, while Kelly Bevan has become the team manager in debt recovery, and Graham Richardson has been promoted to senior legal accounts executive.
Joining Nelsons in 2009, Lisa has 22 years of experience working in HR. She said: “I was drawn to the company by the development opportunities, both personally and as a team, as well as gaining further experience of working in the legal sector. I get huge satisfaction from helping others, be that supporting an employee with their development or resolving a resourcing issue.
“Moving forwards, I am looking forward to continuing the growth of the HR team. My main priorities will be supporting employees as they return to the office and the implementation of our agile working policy.”
Meanwhile, Kelly joined the firm in 2013 and has worked in debt recovery since 2002. She said: “I’ve always been aware of Nelsons’ brilliant reputation so, when the opportunity to work here presented itself, I jumped at the chance to join the team. The firm has been fantastic, especially during the past 18 months, it’s made me appreciate how important my co-workers are.
“I love the variety of my work and am incredibly excited for my new role. We’ve invested in a new case management system, which is going to transform the way the debt recovery team operates. It’s already showing huge potential and, when in full swing, it will really improve the service we are able to provide to our clients.”
Graham has been with Nelsons for the past three years, following ten years of experience with other law firms as well as in the wider accounts sector. He said: “After a short period away from an accounts role, I wanted to get back into doing what I enjoy most and be part of a forward-thinking firm with a great reputation.
“It’s a great feeling when I know I have solved an issue and made someone’s day better. This promotion will enable me to continue improving my skill set and I’m looking forward to the added responsibility, as well as helping the team evolve as we emerge from the pandemic.”
Stewart Vandermark, chief executive of Nelsons, said: “Lisa, Graham and Kelly have a wealth of experience and have all shown great dedication, not only to Nelsons but to furthering their own personal development in their respective fields too. I am delighted to congratulate them all on their promotions.”
