Doyle Clayton announces the appointment of Tina Wisener as CEO

Effective 1 January 2024, Tina Wisener is the new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Doyle Clayton. Regarded as one of the UK's leading employment lawyers, she joined the firm in 2005 and has served as a Board Director for four years, after being appointed in 2019, and became the head of the firm’s Thames Valley office in 2010.

With over 20 years’ experience, Tina has a particular expertise in whistleblowing and complex discrimination matters and also provides bespoke training on a wide range of legal topics affecting the workplace. Prior to her career in law, she served as an Army Officer, specialising in human resources and change management. Ahead of her appointment, Tina commented,

“I am delighted and extremely proud to be succeeding Peter Doyle as CEO of Doyle Clayton. This is a fantastic organisation with incredible people, and I am honoured to continue my journey with the firm in this leadership role.” 

Tina replaces Peter Doyle, who is stepping down from his role as CEO, to become the firm’s Chairman, whilst also continuing to serve as a Board Director. He co-founded Doyle Clayton in 1997 with Darren Clayton, who retired in February 2023, with Peter leading the business for the last 26 years. During this time, he significantly expanded the number of services offered by the firm and was the driving force behind the company becoming employee owned, when it sold a majority share to an employee ownership trust in 2019. Tina commented,

I would like to thank Peter and Darren for the work they have done, and for all of their achievements, since founding the firm 26 years ago. They have established a culture where delivering a high quality service to our clients is of the upmost importance, and at the same time ensuring that our people are trusted, supported and feel valued. I am honoured to have the opportunity to lead such a wonderful organisation.”

Peter added,

“It has always been my priority for our employees to feel an integral part of the organisation and that everyone, no matter their position, has a significant role to play in our success. This is why we became employee owned in 2019, as we felt it was essential to incentivise and retain our staff. I am therefore delighted to be succeeded by Tina, who has been with us for over 18 years, and has played an influential role in our success as a business. I look forward to seeing how she takes the firm forward and I have no doubt that she will achieve outstanding success.”
