In order to deal with growing client demand Tikit expands its sales function with the appointment of former Workshare employee Sam Oakman. “I am very excited to be joining an organisation like Tikit” said Sam. “They are well respected and have such a long standing presence in the legal sector.”
Sam has previously managed law firms and other professional services firms at document comparison vendor, Workshare. Sam was responsible for some of Workshare’s most valuable clients as well as leading on projects entering new vertical markets and businesses.
