Mark Whitford Featured in Rochester Business Journal Article on Becoming Managing Director of Barclay Damon's Rochester Office

Mark Whitford was featured in the Rochester Business Journal article “Mark Whitford Is Committed to Maintaining Culture of Success at Barclay Damon” about his promotion to managing director of Barclay Damon’s Rochester office, effective January 1, 2023. 

About his new position, Mark said, “I really enjoy working here and I want to continue to make it a great place to work for my colleagues.” Mark took over the position from Tom Walsh, and Mark praised Tom for the great work he did during his tenure as managing director. Tom said, “I am glad we have such a steady hand at the helm.” 

Mark being elected to the firm’s Management Committee “is another step in the seamless transition from one generation of owners to the next, which is an important part of our firm culture,” said Connie Cahill, managing partner. “The other members of our management committee and I are thrilled to have a leader with Mark’s experience, intelligence, and deep understanding of the firm’s Rochester office and the larger Rochester community in this critical role as we work together on important issues like identifying the best and brightest new talent to join us and keeping our decades-long Diversity, Equity & Inclusion program strong and thriving,” she continued. 
Even though he will remain a practicing attorney and expects to maintain the same case load in his new role, Mark said, “My hope is that I can do whatever I can to put my partners and my colleagues in the best position to succeed and to support them in any way I can.”
