Additionally, Suckling also has 20 years of industry experience with prior positions at RK Harrison in their private client team and more recently at Zurich.

The team will commence their roles at Miller following the completion of their contractual obligations at their respective employers.

Our new offering will provide our clients with our usual best-in-class approach, providing reassurance that their most valuable assets are protected.”
