 My remit is to grow every aspect of the business in North America and continue to grow Pinnacle’s brand in the US. I’ll be championing our 3E consulting expertise and also looking to take clients on a longer journey with us through our managed services, which is something we have seen great success with in the UK. I am also excited to bring that one-of-a-kind Pinnacle IP to clients through our own, growing suite of software products.  

 It’s great to be a part of a team that’s responsible for building a trusted brand that is always front-of-mind when our clients want to achieve something highly ambitious.  I have worked with many of the Pinnacle consultants during my tenure at Thomson Reuters and found them to be amongst the best in the industry – I look forward to introducing the team to new clients and opportunities. 

 Partnerships with Thomson Reuters and Intapp are core to Pinnacle’s strategy. I am excited about working with both organisations to continue to develop these relationship with a goal of delivering the best solutions and services to our clients.”
