Celebrating 20 years at TTR Barnes

26th January 2023

We are holding double celebrations in the office this month with not one, but two of our team both celebrating 20 years with the firm after having started on exactly the same day in 2003!


Sarah Riddell

Sarah is a master at making our clients feel at ease, having joined the company in 2003 as a receptionist and acting as the first point of contact within the business.

“It is testament to the people I work with that I am celebrating my 20th anniversary here at TTR Barnes.  The colleagues and clients I deal with every day are lovely and have made working here for the last 20 years a real pleasure.”
