York Professionals role for Partners director

York Professionals has welcomed two new board members - Partners Group director Karen Tinkler and owner of York-based Pro-Development, Michelle Mook - to drive its continued growth and success in the region. 
Karen was part of the MBO team that acquired Partners ten years ago. She has almost 20 years’ PR and communications experience, and has worked in York for 18 years and with clients throughout the country and overseas in the professional services, manufacturing, property, education, tourism, food and drink industries. 
Michelle set up Pro-Development in 2011 to provide bespoke engagement and development solutions for small and medium sized businesses alongside training, coaching, team and leadership development.  A big advocate of experiential learning, Michelle is also an award-winning trainer with over 20 years’ experience of working with blue chip businesses, local authorities, the NHS and the SME sector.
York Professionals chair Anne Taylor says, “We’re very lucky to have a strong board of directors representing professional services across the city, and Karen and Michelle’s arrival further cements this. We’re very happy to have them on the team; they are both very well connected in the city and beyond, and I know they’ll make a hugely valuable contribution to York Professionals’ continued success.”
York Professionals is a membership organisation representing the professional services economy in York across seven core sectors:  business support, creative and digital, finance, legal, marketing, people and property. The group’s aim is to support economic growth and help position York as a world-leading centre for international business and enterprise.
