Assistant to Managing Partner
Kim Glover, Assistant to the Managing Partner at Michelmores LLP, joined the firm in 1996 as a legal secretary in the corporate/commercial department. Her role is to provide a comprehensive, executive assistant level support function to the managing partner, provide a secretarial support function at core management meetings, including their executive board, and to play an active role in strategic projects as determined by the managing partner/executive board; a recent example being supporting the launch of the first Chinese owned UK regulated law firm, YangTze Law.
Previously, as a part of a dual role that was in addition to supporting the managing partner, she was head of professional support and worked alongside their team of departmental support team leaders to manage their secretarial resources (c80) across their three offices. This included undertaking a review of their working practices, which led to a restructure of our support function.
She is the founder of the Exeter PA Network, which launched in June 2012, and now has c500 members, with monthly breakfast meetings, two formal development events per year, and an annual conference attracting c70 attendees. She is an ambassador for a local charity supporting young people stepping on to the work ladder and is a trustee of local art and community venue. When not at work, she enjoys life on the coast and can be found walking the dogs or enjoying a cocktail or two!
