Claire Nichols – Former Head of Customer Services, Herbert Smith LLP

I worked for George for over 8 years whilst at Herbert Smith.  George has very strong leadership qualities, he is firm and fair and always gets the best from his team.

I always found George to be very approachable and easy to talk to, he is a strong believer in developing people within his team, and this included me.

George was a great mentor and someone I could always look to for help and advice.  Discussions with George were always honest and to the point, which made it easy to know where you were and where you needed to get to.

During his time at Herbert Smith George brought drive, structure and strategy to a department where these were previously lacking. This resulted in more reliable and respected systems and processes, and helped make the department a challenging and rewarding place to work.
