DWS candidates stake their claim to top job

Four candidates have emerged to replace Virginia Glastonbury as Denton Wilde Sapte’s chief executive.

They include former consultation committee member Martin Kitchen who quit the committee in a bid to avoid conflicts of interest that might prevent him from standing as chief executive.

Kitchen is understood to be a close ally of incumbent Chairman James Dallas.

Other candidates are former Denton Hall managing partner Jonathan Tatten, Howard Morris who is head of the financial institutions practice and regulation chief Robert Finney.
