Jerry Scriven

Managing Partner

Jerry has brought a new dimension to Leonherman since joining the team in 2019 with his dynamic and visionary outlook, gained from the rare combination of industry PLC experience and leading city practice Corporate Finance roles.

Jerry’s extensive experience working with businesses, large and small, across all sectors has built his reputation as a prominent figure within the North West financial community, providing high level advice and support with transactions for businesses and business owners on a regional and national level.

Away from the office, Jerry is a keen sportsman although his teammates would suggest that his best sporting days are firmly behind him!

Michael Rigby

Partner

Michael joined Leonherman in 2010 with an extensive city firm background. Michael champions Leonherman’s audit provision and is renowned for his analytical and technically detailed approach, adding core strength and stability to the flair of our Leadership team.

Michael is also the trusted adviser to many Directors and entrepreneurs, advising on business growth and strategic direction. Michael’s belief that client needs and expectations are paramount has been a key driver in Leonherman’s recent success and his commitment to client service is unparalleled.

Michael’s young family occupies his time away from the office although he is definitely well known for sneaking in the odd round of golf.

Jo Jeffrey

Practice Director

Jo has looked after the Leonherman practice since 2015, delivering our HR and L&D strategies together with facilities management, regulatory compliance, and anything else that crosses her path. Jo loves a project and is involved in most of our deliverables at Leonherman. The practice benefits hugely from her multi-sector expertise as prior to joining Leonherman Jo’s background was in the legal sector where she was a Practice Manager and gained 20 years of legal experience at some of the city’s leading law firms.

Jo oversees all of the Leonherman’s non fee earning activities and is a key contributor in the Leadership Team working to develop, drive and deliver the Firm’s strategies and develop the Firm’s talent pool.

Jo supports her swim athlete sons in their sport so most of her time away from work is spent sat by a pool but without the cocktails unfortunately!

Grace Park

Operations Director

Joining in 2007, Grace is the longest serving member of the leadership team at Leonherman, although you’d never guess this with the enthusiasm and fun she exudes every day. As a fashion graduate, Grace brings a different flair to her love of numbers and she now manages Leonherman’s operations with an infectious vigour that influences and energizes everyone around her.

Grace excels at innovation at Leonherman and if there’s a new gadget, software launch or kit to try out then Grace can be found at the front of the line. Grace leads a team of keen and eager cloud software specialists who thrive on her relaxed but motivational management style.

Grace’s vision is helping yourself to help others, so she loves to spend her downtime rejuvenating at spas or puzzling her way out of escape rooms.
