Extra three-year endorsement for firm CEO

Extra three-year endorsement for firm CEO

Michelle Dixon will hold the reins at Maddocks for another three years, following a partnership vote in April.  

Australian law firm Maddocks has announced the reappointment of CEO Michelle Dixon (pictured) for another three years. She has held the post since 2014.

Maddocks chair Mark Henry announced the outcome of a partnership vote on Ms Dixon’s ongoing appointment, which was held earlier this month. He said that Ms Dixon had led the business during a challenging period for the legal sector.

“Michelle has worked very closely with the partnership and the board to put forward a strategy focused on outstanding client service, innovation, and diversity and equal opportunity,” Mr Henry said.

“This strategy has led to an increase in revenue and profits, recognition for the work we do with our clients and a market-leading reputation as a workplace that places the highest value on the skills and experience of our people,” he said.

Last year, Ms Dixon was recognised for her industry leadership in the Lawyers Weekly Women in the Law Awards as 2016 Executive of the Year. The Maddocks CEO was also the recipient of a Victorian award for excellence in women’s leadership from the Women and Leadership Australia organisation.

Ms Dixon, who has worked at her firm for more than 20 years, said that she has “loved every minute” at Maddocks.  

“I look forward to working with our partners and the board to continue to drive towards our strategic goal of being a firm that delivers first-class legal services to our clients and first-rate career opportunities for our people,” she said.
