Transport logistics company Christian Salvesen has restructured its in-house legal department to better split the focus between commercial and company secretarial duties.
The restructure sees Keith Marriott promoted to the newly created role of commercial legal director, while Ian Rose has been promoted to the role of assistant company secretary.
Legal director and company secretary Ed Peppiatt said: "Both roles report directly to me and will be key in achieving the objectives the department has set to align itself with the changing strategic needs of the business and the board."
Marriott has also been tasked with recruiting two junior lawyers to expand the team.
The company has grown, with two former secretaries moving into legal roles: Ros Kerr has become a paralegal to support employment lawyer Paula Whelan while undertaking her law degree, while Nicola Robinson has qualified as a legal executive.
"It's not a policy, it's just happened that we had two secretaries who had the aptitude for the change," said Peppiatt.
