Exigent has appointed its COO Wayne Ramsay to chief strategy officer as it says it plans to broaden out its pure play legal process outsourcing and contract management and automation offering to include working with the C-suite on more bespoke technology solutions including AI and blockchain.
Ramsay (pictured) joined Exigent in 2012 and before that worked as a strategic solutions analyst in the Cabinet Office, advising Tony Blair’s government on its post-911 ICT infrastructure risk profile.
“We’ve been providing value to global organizations beyond just legal outsourcing for over a decade. But now, with the acceleration in technology advances, we are really at a turning point. You can finally see in practice the amazing improvements you can make to your bottom line if you apply the right technology to the right issue. Companies and legal departments should be able to pick and choose what’s best for them without having to invest heavily in developing the technology themselves. It moves too fast for clients to keep up in a meaningful way” said David Holme, Exigent’s CEO.
“Wayne will help to drive our efforts to make our offering even more compelling, expanding our technology expertise beyond traditional contract management to include new exciting developments like blockchain and Artificial Intelligence. With smart human resources, the right technology and legal expertise, Exigent can really help forward-looking organizations to continuously improve performance and stay compliant at the same time.”
