Duchy Continues To Strengthen Core Team

The Duchy of Lancaster continues to invest for the future by strengthening its administrative support teams in both London and Lancaster.

Accounts Assistant Sally Davies joins Rural Accountant Ralph Whitehead in the Lancaster office which has now taken over the responsibility for financial management of all Rural Surveys and tenancies following the decision to bring estate management back in hand earlier in the year.

In January, the Northern Rural team will be further supported by a newly appointed Rural Administrator. Jane Norris is an experienced PA and administrator who joins the team after 14 years’ service with the Vice-Chancellor’s office at Lancaster University.

Genevieve Norris has also been appointed to assist in the London office working with Senior PA Clare Wesley and PA to the Head of Rural and Head of Project Management Zoe Roome. Genevieve is a recent graduate who studied law at the University of East Anglia before moving to London.

Commenting on the appointments CEO Nathan Thompson said: “We are delighted that Sally, Jane and Genevieve have decided to join the Duchy. We are a small team who work very closely together and we need people who have not only the right technical skills but who also demonstrate our core values and culture. I know that these three individuals will add value to the business and look forward to working with them as we continue to build for the future.”

Sally took up her post at Lancaster Castle in September last year and Genevieve was appointed to the London office in December. Jane joined the team based in the Duchy’s Northern office at Lancaster Castle in January 2019.
