Meanwhile, Mandryko has taken an internal role change into chief of staff.  

In this role, she joins the executive team and reports directly to Openwork’s CEO.

Mandryko, who has been with Openwork for seven years, will retain her general counsel and legal responsibilities for the firm.

She will also sponsor Openwork’s corporate and social responsibility (CSR) and environmental social and governance (ESG) agendas.

Howell said: “I am looking forward to working with David, Andrew and Stuart who all have exceptional and relevant experience to help the firm deliver on its strategy – and I am pleased that we’ve identified and promoted talent from within with Erica’s new role.

“I would also like to thank Paul for his unstinting support in guiding Openwork through some of its most challenging years and for showing us all the way as a role model of our values.  I am pleased he will remain involved with the firm in his new role as chair of the Openwork Foundation.”
