Wilson Allen has promoted Shishir Shetty from VP of technology services to a newly created role of chief operating officer, effective July 1, 2020. Shetty will oversee Wilson Allen’s day-to-day business operations and help ensure the company delivers on its internal goal of improved financial and operational efficiency. His current responsibilities are being distributed to other members of the firm who are taking on new roles for the business.

“Identifying a COO has been a priority to me so I can dedicate more time to steering the company’s future direction – and Shishir is a natural choice, says Bruce Wilson, CEO and managing director of Wilson Allen. “Being appointed as COO formalizes the role Shishir has assumed in many ways, particularly in the last year. He has proven himself to be a valuable advisor to all who seek his input. He understands all aspects of our business and understands our clients and their needs exceptionally well. Plus, he’s a very approachable and capable leader who can carry on the unique culture of our organization. I know he will excel in this position – as he has throughout his career.”

Shetty joined the company in 2012 as senior director of 3E client services with responsibility for the company’s technical and application specialists. In this role, he was instrumental in establishing Wilson Allen’s partnership with Intapp. In 2016, he was promoted to VP of technology services with responsibility for professional and technical consulting services as well as the development of the best-in-class Wilson Proforma Tracker digital billing software. He is based in Wilson Allen’s office in Celebration, Florida.
