In brief: Eversheds appoints marketing director

National firm Eversheds has appointed Fiona Inchbald to the newly-created post of national director of marketing. Inchbald, who worked as marketing services director with accountancy firm Levy Gee prior to her appointment, joined the firm last week. Her responsibilities include developing national marketing campaigns and building the national profile of the firm, which recently merged with City practice Jaques & Lewis. National managing partner Peter Cole says Inchbald's appointment “reflects Evershed's continued commitment to business development in an increasingly competitive market place”.
