Christopher Longden becomes Managing Director

Chris had this to say about becoming our new managing director.

“With effect from today I am delighted to announce that I am now taking over as Managing Director for Whitehead Monckton, replacing Stephen Beck who has stepped down from the role after 9 years.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Stephen for all his hard work and achievements over the last 9 years.

I am delighted to have become Whitehead Monckton’s Managing Director.  Having been part of the Executive Board for 2 years, I have long had a focus on the strategic management and development of the firm. I am really excited about continuing to build on the success of Whitehead Monckton and expanding the legal services we offer to both our personal and commercial clients.

I am looking forward to continuing to strengthen our relationships into the future.”

Meanwhile our former managing director who is stepping down after 9 years, Stephen Beck had this to say.

“After 9 years at the helm of this fantastic business, today I hang up my boots as Managing Director of Whitehead Monckton and step down from its management board.

It has been a privilege to have been entrusted with the strategic development and operational management of the firm by my fellow Directors and an absolute honour to have represented the firm and been at the forefront of its progress in that time.

We have achieved so much as a team from incorporating the business into a limited company to opening a new office in Canterbury, acquiring Docklands Solicitors in London and moving into plush new premises in both Maidstone and Tenterden.

The business has grown substantially over the past 9 years and I am so pleased to now be handing it over to my successor, Chris Longden, who I know will do a brilliant job.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all our professional contacts, many of whom I have the pleasure of knowing personally, without whom many of your successes would not have been possible.

Thank you for all your support and we look forward to continuing to strengthen our relationships into the future.”
