Capsticks has announced the appointment of Keith Blundred as the new Head of Leeds office
Keith joined Capticks as a partner in Leeds’ Claims team in 2022. Since joining he has been a very visible leader in the Leeds team and has worked closely on various developments with his predecessor, Lisa Geary. Together they have already implemented a number of office initiatives designed to connect the various teams, including breakfast club, theatre club and quiz socials which all reflect our core values.
Going forward Keith has a number of plans to continue to take the Capsticks Leeds team from strength to strength.
On his new appointment, Keith commented:
“I’m pleased to be appointed as the next Head of Leeds office. I’m passionate about the people that work at Capsticks, particularly the team in Leeds, and I’m excited to continue ensuring that the team here has a balance between work, social engagements and other initiatives that allow for different teams to meet and integrate together. A close knit, looked after team, means our clients have the best client experience.”
Managing Partner, Martin Hamilton, said:
“I look forward to the initiatives and plans Keith will be bringing to the table as he takes on this additional responsibility. One of our values is People First and that undoubtedly embodies our teams as well. We want the teams in each of our offices to feel connected and part of the firm.”
Lisa Geary has been Head of Capsticks Leeds office since May 2019 and over the last four years has made significant contributions, particularly taking the lead in keeping the team connected and morale high during the Covid-19 pandemic.
