DWS upcoming election: Glastonbury to stand

Denton Wilde Sapte is the latest City firm to be gripped by election fever, as it gears up for its management elections at the end of the year.

Up for grabs are two non-executive board positions and the chief executive’s role.

Virginia Glastonbury, the firm’s chief executive for the past six years, has indicated she will stand for a third three-year term. Though at this stage is not yet known whether any partners intend to stand against her.

It is understood that partners intending nominate themselves must indicate their plans by the end of October.

Elected partners will take up their positions in February 2005.

Election season is in full swing across a range of UK firms, with candidates fighting it out for the top jobs at Dickinson Dees, Herbert Smith, Lovells and Simmons & Simmons.
