Russell Jones, a partner at Fidler & Pepper Solicitors, is to take over the helm of a Manfield business and networking organisations.
In January next year, Jones will become chair of Mansfield 2020, taking over from Irvin Robinson, who after 15 years in the role is stepping back in order to dedicate more time to his family.
Jones said: “Without any doubt whatsoever, in recent years Irvin has been the driving force behind Mansfield 2020, bringing his passion for the area to the fore in a role that has seen the organisation support businesses and work with other organisations for the benefit of the town.
“He will be sorely missed as chairman but I am determined to bring my own experience, drive and passion for business to the position, which I am delighted and very proud to be taking up.”
Jonmes, who will take up the post alongside his work at Fidler & Pepper Solicitors, added: “I am confident that Mansfield 2020 will continue to go from strength to strength and I relish the opportunity to work with the fabulous Mansfield 2020 team, its dedicated and extremely hard working board of directors, the members, and others, for the good of Mansfield and Ashfield.”
