Tikit expands its EMEA sales team with ex-LexisNexis hire
London – February 29, 2016 In order to deal with its continued expansion in the EMEA region, Tikit invests in its sales function with ex-LexisNexis employee, Colin McArdle.
“I am delighted to join Tikit. Its blend of proprietary software as well as excellent partnerships, means we are perfectly placed to meet legal and professional service firm’s product and productivity needs” said Colin.
Colin comes from a strong legal technology and professional services background. He spent almost nine years at LexisNexis, the latter half working in their Enterprise Solutions division. Colin then moved on to Kindleworth where he worked as a Technology Consultant working directly with law firms and new entrants to the legal market. More recently, Colin has spent two years with Williams Lea in a Client Services Director role. There he worked in their Legal & Professional Services division focusing on client relationship management and business development.
Colin will be joining Tikit as an Account Director and will be working with large law firms to increase the value they derive from Tikit’s solutions.
This is part of a wider business strategy that aims to place Tikit as the preferred IT and software strategic partner for law firms. Lloyd Ellison, Director of Sales, EMEA at Tikit said that Colin’s appointment “will certainly help retain and build upon Tikit’s focus on the legal sector. Cloud, mobility, security, technology adoption and collaboration are becoming increasingly important to law firms productivity needs. Our experience in the sector, combined with the power of our own proprietary software and our partner solutions enables Tikit to bring it all together for our clients”.
Lloyd went on to say, “We will continue to invest in our products, in our partnerships and in our people so that our clients continue to receive an excellent service from Tikit.
