Jacksons Law Firm is delighted to announce the appointment of one of the regions’ prominent business leaders as Non-executive Consultant.

Bob Cuffe, who recently left the Gazette where he was Regional Managing Director, will be working closely with the partners and the firm’s marketing department to further develop their business development strategy and brings with him considerable management and business planning skills.

Bob, who was born in Redcar, started his career with the Gazette in 1983 as Advertising Representative and throughout his 35 years worked in a number of posts in both Tyneside and Teesside. More recently, in his role as Regional Managing Director, he was responsible for The Chronicle, The Journal, Sunday Sun and The Gazette and associated websites. Following his departure from The Gazette, Bob has been working as Non-executive Director with Darlington Building Society and Non-executive Advisor with Recognition PR. Bob is also a Governor of Teesside University and sits on the board of the South Tees Development Corporation.

Geoff Skeoch, Senior Partner at Jacksons said, “We are absolutely thrilled to have Bob on board at a time when Jacksons is developing its service offering to clients, new and old. Bob is passionate about the North East and shares our values of excellent and bespoke client care and is committed to supporting the local community. He will, no doubt, be a valuable asset to Jacksons and will fit really well into our culture.”

Bob said, “I’ve been a long-time admirer of Jacksons Law Firm, from their extraordinary Teesside heritage and the ambition of the business across the wider region, to the external contribution they have made to the local community including the education and charity sectors. After over 30 years in local media, my ambition was to work in a non-executive role with organisations of integrity, values and ambition and Jacksons Law Firm fits perfectly. I’m very proud to be associated with Jacksons and look forward to a long term partnership that sees the organisation deliver its strategic growth plans”.

Operating from its head office in Stockton on Tees, an office in Newcastle upon Tyne and office space in Sunderland, it is well placed to assist clients across the region on a wide range of business and personal legal advice.
