Marsh, who has more than 20 years’ post-qualification experience, has joined the studio from Saunders, where she led the practice’s Manchester office and business development activities.
Her previous experience includes senior roles at Hurd Rolland and 17 years at Broadway Malyan, during which time she helped establish the global practice’s Manchester base.
