David Boswell appointed CTO at Morae – the key changes in his role 

David Boswell has been appointed as Morae Global’s new chief technology officer. Based in London, he will be responsible for Morae’s technology strategy and execution across the business. He will also lead Morae’s information technology and security teams, and its product and engineering teams.  

A key priority for Boswell will be on enhancing Morae’s discovery and information management solutions. 

Boswell co-founded Phoenix Business Solutions, which was acquired by Morae in 2019. He already held the role of president of digital transformation, and we asked what the key differences are between that role and the new one. 

Before: President, Digital Transformation  

Focus: Responsibility chiefly for document management solutions. Boswell helped large law firms and corporate legal departments design and implement solutions to improve their information governance strategies. He managed daily operations for technology service lines to ensure service levels always met with client expectations. 

Now: Chief Technology Officer  

Focus: Responsibility for both Morae’s information technology (IT) and security teams and its product and engineering teams. Focus on enhancing Morae’s e-discovery and information management solutions. 

Difference: Previously he was responsible for service delivery of Morae’s solutions. Now he’s focused on developing the solutions themselves. A spokesperson for Morae told us: “He’ll also bring a fresh approach to our IT and security teams with the goal of building more collaborative capabilities for us to work with our clients.” 

Shahzad Bashir, chairman and chief executive officer at Morae said: “From David’s success in leading our digital transformation business, he is exceptionally qualified to now lead our wider digital initiatives across both Morae and our clients around the world.”
