Kevin Rogers and Faye Reizopoulou have joined the board of the Law Training Centre
THE CHAIR of a leading regional law firm has joined the board of a leading provider of online lawyer, paralegal and post-qualification training for legal professionals in the UK as a non-executive consultant.
Kevin Rogers, partner at Northamptonshire practice Wilson Browne Solicitors, is one of several new appointments as the centre continues its growth plans.
He is full of praise for the organisation, in particular its scholarship which, he says: “blew me away”.
An experienced dispute resolution lawyer who has been recognised by the Legal 500 – the clients’ ‘bible’ to the legal profession – Mr Rogers is also the immediate past president of Northamptonshire Chamber of Commerce, a previous CPD lecturer and a recognised advocate at the South East Midlands Local Enterprise Partnership for linking the classroom with business.
As chair of Wilson Browne, he is integral to the strategic management of the practice with his fellow Board members. WB has achieved national recognition from the Law Society, The DBA Design awards and the Modern Law Awards for the firm’s ground-breaking approach to marketing and communications.
“I am really excited to join Law Training Centre on this journey,” Mr Rogers said. “There are so many things to like about the ethos of the business and I cannot wait to get started.
The commercial ambition is there for sure but so is a commitment to hold dear the drive for excellence while supporting every single learner’s achievements, whatever their background. The scholarship scheme that is offered for example really blew me away.
“I have worked in firms in London and Manchester but come from a working class background. It genuinely was the honest passion of the board their willingness to seek constant improvement that hooked me in from the start.”
Also joining the Law Training Centre board is Faye Reizopoulou, as finance director. She has worked with a number of Academy Trusts. And was awarded Specialist Leader of Education designation by the National College of Teaching and Learning. She is currently deputy chief financial officer of Leigh Academies Trust, which comprises of 31 secondary, primary and special academies with annual government funding of around £110 million.
