Realm announces a raft of promotions

Posted on 11/9/2022 by Katherine Memery

We are pleased to announce that four members of our specialist team have been promoted in recent months and in July Realm enjoyed its strongest month on record. 

Kelly Reid and Paula Pawlowska have both been promoted to the position of Associate Director.  

Kelly is a specialist in the recruitment of private client and Court of Protection lawyers and the head of Realm’s private client team. She joined us in 2017 and has more than 15 years of legal recruitment experience.  

Paula heads up our family law niche. She also joined Realm in 2017 shortly after completing her Masters in Law.  

Within our marketing team, Lucy Cade has progressed to Senior Marketing Executive and Katherine Memery has been promoted to Principal Marketing & PR Executive. 

The news of these promotions comes shortly after we celebrated a record-high number of monthly placements and Realm was shortlisted at the North West Business Masters Awards. Our Managing Director, Duane Cormell, has also been revealed as a finalist at the Northern Gamechangers Awards. 

Duane comments: 

“I’m thrilled to have been able to promote Kelly and Paula to Associate Director, in recognition of their hard work and dedication to Realm over the last few years, as well as the immensely positive impact they have on the team and their leadership, both in setting an example, and supporting and helping others. 

“I'm also delighted to have been able to promote Lucy and Katherine. Both are key members of our marketing team and have been instrumental in helping law firms and legal professionals alike find and benefit from our attraction, retention and recruitment consultancy services.”
