UK movers and shakers: Tiger Eye hires iManage senior technical consultant to strengthen cloud services capabilities

iManage partner Tiger Eye has appointed Nairn McCrudden, ex-iManage senior technical consultant, to boost its cloud services capabilities. Tiger Eye tells us that McCrudden will play an active role in guiding clients with cloud migrations, acting as a point of contact both internally and externally for cloud migration support.

The hire follows an increased demand for cloud adoptions and migrations from Tiger Eye’s existing client base and further afield following iManage’s recent end of life announcement. Tiger Eye says that this demand is expected to increase further as the end date for DeskSite and FileSite support (December 2023) draws nearer, with many firms opting for cloud-based systems when upgrading to iManage Work 10.

McCrudden joins Tiger Eye following over five years at iManage, holding senior positions in the vendor’s professional services team. He will be utilizing his experience and expertise in the new role by supporting the organisation’s clients with adopting the iManage Cloud, security policy manager, and other cloud-based iManage solutions.

McCrudden has held many roles at leading legal technology providers, working at vendors including Workshare (now Litera) and DocAuto. He also worked in-house at Clyde & Co, during which time he managed the firm’s DMS globally. In 2004, McCrudden worked alongside Tiger Eye’s founder and managing director, Dave Wilson, at Interwoven, before the company was acquired by Autonomy. Following a management buyout in 2015, iManage was formed as an independent vendor, with McCrudden rejoining the firm in 2017.

McCrudden said: “I was drawn to Tiger Eye’s culture and am pleased to be joining the team. I look forward to utilizing my expertise to support global organisations and boutique firms alike with their cloud adoptions. I have joined Tiger Eye at a time of exciting growth and development, and I have been particularly impressed by the product development team’s plans for the future. I am excited about Tiger Eye’s new launches planned for Q4 and beyond and hope to play an active role in the organisation’s further expansion.”

Wilson added: “This is just the start of an exciting period of growth for Tiger Eye, however Nairn’s experience and can-do attitude are already making a great impact in our team.”
