"I’m so excited to be part of this journey. PERSUIT is the digital manifestation of what I’ve been trying to do with the legal profession for 30 years. It’s fast becoming the single source of truth. What’s really novel is that the PERSUIT platform delivers value not just for the corporates but the firms too. It just does not make sense If you are not working in this way now."
"Having spent years in enterprise software companies, most recently as the CFO of Netsuite I realized quickly that PERSUIT’s ‘Time to Value’ for customers was incredible. A real game changer that CFO’s cannot ignore. How could I not be part of such an exciting journey at PERSUIT."
"I thought I’d seen it all until I discovered PERSUIT. Having implemented the platform across the UBS global legal team and spent decades as an executive in the financial services industry this was an opportunity too good to be missed to help lead corporates globally on an innovation journey that will transform the way they acquire legal services."
Frank Stranges, Chairman at PERSUIT, noted, “We are humbled to have assembled a wonderful group of people to help us continue our global journey and support an amazing team that our customers love. We are so proud of them.”
