Lumsden has over 30 years of experience working in the legal IT market. Between 2000 and 2013 David was CEO of Tikit Group Plc. Tikit was floated on the London Stock Exchange in 2001 and was acquired by the BT Group in 2013.  Prior to joining Tikit David spent 7 years as CIO at the international law firm Ashurst LLP. In this new position Lumsden will be advising the board on matters relating to business and market development, strategic alliances and investment opportunities.

Peter Wallqvist, Managing Director at RAVN Systems commented, “One commonly cited problem in the London Tech scene – versus the likes of Silicon Valley – is the lack of skilled and experienced staff at board level. Therefore RAVN are delighted to have David as an advisor to the board, with his vast experience in strategic decision making at the highest corporate levels”.
