Jo Wicox and I first met in March at the ‘Let’s do business’ network group who meet at Dantes restaurant, Chorley.
She has recently joined Marsden Rawsthorn solicitors as an Associate Director, working primarily out of the Fulwood office.
Last week she asked the group for help regarding a land registry document that is in her firms possession. The document, now owned by a trust, dates back to the early 1800 but refers to the original family owner in the years 1749. Natural curiosity caused the group to ask questions regarding the history of the document.
Jo spoke with noticeable excitement in her voice. Without compromising or divulging sensitive information she explained the story behind the legal document and what her team was tasked with.
Jo works in the Commercial property team who oversee purchases and sales of land and property. I thought Jo may have had a long standing interest in buildings and the history behind them, but I was wrong. Her early career aspirations and ambitions were wide and varied. Starting with – Veterinarian, Dentist, Artist, Criminal psychologist then a Mounted Police Person.
Talking with her I guess that she could have succeeded at any of those professions. Most of us can look back and remember why, who or what made us change our minds and pursue other career avenues. Jo shared some of those ‘Ws’ with me.
I got a clear impression that she enjoys her work and career opportunity. The firm has recently gone through a major change and has a new Managing Director who driving the company forward and delivering the sort of service that the 21st Century client now expect or demand.
As we chatted Jo made notes and references to introductions that she would arrange for me.
Jo is obviously like and respected by the members of the ‘Let’s do Business’ network group and deservedly so. Having sat with Jo, I to would vouch for her and recommend her wholeheartedly to any of my connections. Thanks’ for the opportunity to learn more about you Jo.
