In brief: Miller assumes Law Society directorship

The Law Society has created a new post with the appointment of John Miller as director of membership services. Miller, who is a former marketing and business development director for Westminster Health Care, begins work at the end of April.

Although the post is new, Miller's ambit will include a large part of the work previously done by services director Geoff Bignall. “At a time when the solicitor's profession needs to market itself, so too must the Law Society,” said Miller. He previously worked for Forte, Calor Gas and the Beecham Group, and has an MBA from Manchester Business School.
