AN experienced head in the world of business marketing has joined a law firm from the Hartlepool area.
Victoria Cornfield is the latest addition to the team at Tilly Bailey & Irvine Solicitors where she has become the firm’s new marketing executive.
She said: “The challenge is to market an established regional firm at a time when getting the marketing right for law firms is vital.”
She said the need for proper marketing was all-important for firms such as the law firm because they “face competition from national brands with big advertising budgets.”
She described Tilly Bailey and Irvine as a firm which was “keen to move with the times, embracing online marketing and social media.”
She praised the company for “using different ideas to connect with people and businesses across the North East.”
Victoria added: “I am enjoying working with a company that understands the value of marketing and is open to new ideas.”
Victoria, 33, lives in Marton, Middlesbrough with her husband and two young children.
She has an International Tourism Management degree from Leeds Metropolitan University, which led to her working for Visit Tees Valley for eight years, most recently as marketing manager.
She is now returning to work following a short career break when her second child was born.
The law firm has offices in Hartlepool, Wynyard Park, Stockton and Barnard Castle. Tilly Bailey & Irvine Solicitors is one of the Tees Valley’s longest established law firms, dating back to 1841.
