New FD Alexander will support growth at Harrison Drury


Harrison Drury has appointed a new finance director to support our ongoing growth and development.

Alexander Mansfield will act as a strategic advisor to the firm’s board while taking overall responsibility for our financial functions.

He takes over as FD from Rob Salter who is retiring after 13 years in the role, a period in which the firm has grown to have over 130 employees and six North West offices.

Alexander has extensive experience in leading financial management within professional services firms having spent almost 15 years as FD at Merseyside-based law firm Jackson Lees and later FD of its parent company MAPD, helping guide it through a series of mergers and acquisitions.
