IRIS Legal Communication
Arlene Adams – Managing Director – IRIS Legal Business Unit

Following the successful reorganisation of the IRIS Legal Business along functional lines, with a new and experienced management team now in place and the establishment of a clear future Product Road Map and Strategy for the IRIS Legal products, Arlene Adams has decided to leave IRIS to pursue a new challenge elsewhere.

Arlene was originally recruited to consolidate its leadership position within the legal market and to effect the big changes required to position it for future growth. Her enthusiasm and energy have enabled this task to be completed as planned and meetings with our legal customers, advocate that our plans are on track and that we are responding well to the needs of our customers. With this initial task complete, the MD role is now much more operationally focused around building upon the strong position we now have within our marketplace. We have all really enjoyed working with Arlene and wish her every success for the future.

Arlene’s successor will be Tony Bromfield who starts with us on Monday 24th November. He brings an exceptional combination of business development and operational experience from telecoms, professional services and technology industries. Tony was on the Board at Cable & Wireless International where he ran the businesses in the Caribbean, before which he was responsible for global operations at C&W Europe, Asia, US. During his time as an IT Partner with Ernst & Young in the 1990s, Tony was responsible for selling and delivering business transformation programmes in the Technology, Media and Telecoms space.

Like Arlene, Tony is committed to our plans which continue building upon the strong position we have within this market and will ensure that those plans are uninterrupted. Tony will be communicating with the IRIS Legal customer base in the coming days. If you wish to contact Tony sooner, please do so via legal@iris.co.uk

Kind Regards
