As the leading specialist recruitment company in the Timber & Forest Products and Manufactured Joinery industries across the UK and around the world, we are constantly seeking ways to push the boundaries and add more value to our Clients.
As part of our continued growth strategy, we are delighted to announce the promotion of Tom Austen to Director.
Tom graduated with first class honours from the prestigious Nottingham Law School and was awarded the Irwin Mitchell Prize for securing the highest marks of all graduates. From here, Tom joined the legal department of FXCM, a NYSE listed online foreign exchange and equities broker that has operations around the world and is regulated in the UK by the Financial Conduct Authority. Tom worked closely with business partners and external companies around the world for two years before accepting an offer in January 2014 to join Miller McKenzie and work with management to drive the company forward.
Over the past two years, Tom has rapidly made a name for himself within the industry; working closely with a variety of UK based and international clients on a strategic basis, managing the careers of prominent senior business leaders operating £150m+ turnover companies and spearheading Miller McKenzie’s business development strategy.
Tom said “Since joining Miller McKenzie I have been proud to play a part in our continued success within the Timber & Forest Products and Manufactured Joinery sectors. Whilst we may already lead the way within these markets, I know there is much more that we can do to consolidate our position and offer more to our clients, whatever their challenges may be. We are constantly looking to partner with dynamic, ambitious companies as we continue to move forward and I am excited to help Miller McKenzie go from strength to strength.”
