THE Tynedale branch of a North-East financial specialist firm has added to its team.

Sage Wealth Management, which has a base on Priestpopple in Hexham, has welcomed Katy O’Donnell as office administrator.

Katy worked in an admin role in the town for three years, but was told her position would no longer be required in September. But she has been recruited by SWM, and she is looking forward to getting started.

She said “I have really enjoyed working in Hexham as the people are fantastic.

“I was really keen to continue working here and was looking for a role that utilised both my customer service and admin skills developed in previous roles, so the move has come at the perfect time for me.

“I’m certainly looking forward to the new challenges and helping to support Kaye Mullen, our senior wealth manager.”
