Sophie Dwerryhouse, a name well known within the CLA, will join the Midlands office from mid-November as the Regional Director for the Midlands, taking over from Mark Riches who is staying within the organisation but moving to London to take on the post of Director of Programmes.

Having previously worked for CLA sponsors mfg Solicitors for seven years before joining the CLA as the National Access Advisor, she has an excellent knowledge of the region and a great understanding of the membership and their needs.

I am delighted to be joining the Midlands team as their Regional Director at a time of changes and opportunities. I wish Mark all the best in his new role as Director of Programmes. Mark and his team have done a great job in the region and I hope to continue with this work.
