Financial planning firm Old Mill has promoted marketing manager Kim Barnard to its new head of office for its Yeovil, West Country department.
Barnard (pictured) has been on the marketing team for 11 years, with her most recent role being marketing manager. The promotion marks the first time anyone in a professional support team role has taken on such a position at the Somerset-based adviser firm.
Her previous role led her to assist with the recent rebrand of the firm which has given her a "real head start" for her new position.
Barnard said: "Working on the rebrand has given me huge insight and a full understanding of how our values link into our brand philosophy; our purpose, principles and personality and how this embeds into Old Mill and our staff engagement."
Old Mill business development and marketing director Matthew Phillips added: "Kim is a natural collaborator and someone who commits fully to everything that she does. She is a great representative of our values and given her key role in the insight behind our recent rebrand I believe she is ideally placed to take on this position."
