Corrs Chambers Westgarth has appointed Ross Hargreaves as the firm's new director of people and development. Hargreaves joins the firm from Ashurst where he was the national head of people development operations since August last year.
Hargreaves fills the role left vacant at Corrs by Alexis McCarthy (previously Navie) who left the firm last June. He is a senior human resources professional with career experience gained both in Australia and Asia in large, organisationally-complex multinational corporations and professional services firms. Prior to Ashurst he worked for Telstra Business as the national human resources manager, and prior to that he was head of human resources at Linklaters Asia, based in Hong Kong.
"Ross brings vast experience to the role with considerable time spent at large corporations and professional services firms," said Corrs partner and CEO John Denton. "His skills and range of experience will be a wonderful complement to the firm and our bold ambition to grow the scale and capability of the firm by at least a third by 2015."
