Enable Business Solutions has hired legal tech industry veteran Jake Laliberte to head-up further growth in North America, supporting the expansion of its proposal software PitchPerfect into the region, we can reveal. Laliberte will be supported by Michael Davis, who was formerly at Thomson Reuters Elite.
Laliberte, who formerly worked as senior vice president, enterprise solutions at Fulcrum GT and before that at Intapp as vice president, global accounts, has worked in the legal technology sector for 30 years. He is best known for his role as director of sales, global accounts at Elite, where he worked for 16 years.
David Lumsden, CEO of Enable, who joined last June, said, “With our expanding PitchPerfect client base around the world we are very excited to announce that Jake and his team have agreed to represent us in North America and Canada. With his knowledge and expertise of the legal industry this will substantially drive growth in this area”.
Enable PitchPerfect clients already include Gibson Dunn, Reed Smith and Baker Botts. The solution is accessed via a ribbon in Microsoft Word and PowerPoint and enables users to create pitch documents and marketing collateral complete with images and text extracted from multiple sources across the firm without experiencing the usual formatting issues.
Laliberte, now VP of North America said, “David and I have been discussing this for six months and hit it off as we have lots in common. I took a look at the product: it’s innovative and I know clients such as Reed Smith well. I’m really looking forward to working with the team.”
Davis has worked with professional firms for over 30 years, which includes over 20 years at Elite. He will be responsible for working with firms in the Northeast of the United States.
