York Professionals has strengthened its representation of the property and finance sectors with the appointment of three new board directors.

Richard Peak, managing director of The Helmsley Group, Jackie Senior, Garbutt + Elliott director, and Jonathan Doyle, senior manager at Clive Owen LLP, have taken up positions on the York Professionals board this month.

 York Professionals represents the city’s professional services economy in the business support, creative and digital, finance, legal, marketing, people and property sectors.

Working alongside strategic and corporate partners, the organisation supports and champions professional services providers, helping them grow their businesses and networks, driving economic growth and showcasing the city as a superb place to live and work.

The role of the board directors is to help deliver York Professionals’ strategic objectives. Chair Michelle Mook says, "More than 21,000 people work in York's professional services sector, and we’re keen to ensure that we represent them all. It’s fantastic to welcome Richard, Jackie and Jonathan to the board and bolster our representation of the property and finance sectors. 

“I look forward to working with them all to help York Professionals achieve its growth plans, remain relevant in a changing business landscape and showcase the city’s strong and vibrant community of professionals.”
