New CEO joins Gotelee Solicitors

We are pleased to announce our new Chief Executive, Charles Rowett.

Charles will succeed Alistair Lang who is retiring at Easter after three years with us. Charles is no stranger to Suffolk having lived in the Woodbridge area for over twenty years and he held various executive roles locally in Gist-brocades UK and Hutchison Ports as well as in financial services and management consulting. Most recently he has been CEO at Yorkshire Cancer Research, the largest independent cancer charity in England. He commented, “I’m delighted to be coming back to Suffolk and to joining Gotelee at such an exciting time. The firm has an outstanding reputation in the region and there are enormous opportunities to build on the excellent work of Alistair and the Partners in a market that is changing rapidly.”

Brian Morron, Senior Partner, added, “Charles’ experience in leadership roles and local knowledge proved the decisive points in what was a tough choice between a range of excellent candidates. We are delighted to have him on board for the next phase of Gotelee’s development.

Sadly, we can also announce the impending retirement of Brian Morron from the role of Senior Partner. However, he will continue at the firm as a consultant. After 16 years in the role, he hands over in April to Peter Crix, currently head of the Wills and Probate department at Gotelee. Mr Crix has been a solicitor with Gotelee for 37 years having been based at both the Ipswich and Hadleigh offices. He said, “A time of change at the firm with Brian’s change of role and Charles’ arrival as well as continuing plans to grow our business. An exciting point to take on this leadership challenge and keep the momentum going. We have a strong team here across our various offices and I see good growth ahead”.
