Encompass 200Encompass Corporation, the technology solutions provider to financial services, legal professional and insolvency and corporate recovery firms, has made a number of significant appointments to its team, bringing the total number of staff to 32 in the UK.

In early 2015 Encompass employed just two software developers at its Glasgow headquarters.  Since then, the business has grown considerably with recent hires including the appointment of Scott Goodsir Smyth to bolster the firm’s customer success team.

Scott is responsible for establishing and growing a new team in Glasgow, where he has already recruited a Customer Success Specialist from the financial services sector.

Other recent appointments in their Glasgow office include 4 people for their sales team to target professional services clients and two developers in the market leading data products team.

Former Equifax manager, Graeme Port, is the new data products manager and Abigail Smith has joined as marketing and events co-ordinator.

In their London office, 4 field sales advisors (two professional services; two financial services) have joined Encompass and Natasha Miller, formerly a manager at Workshare, has joined as professional services product manager.

Responding to the information security requirements of clients in financial services, the company has also appointed a security and standards specialist to manage accreditation and ensure Encompass complies with strict information security regulations.

Wayne Johnson, founder and CEO at Encompass, said: “Since the company’s inception, we are delighted to report that the business has grown from strength to strength, and this is reflected in the calibre of the staff we are recruiting.  We design and develop products to ensure maximum quality and performance for our clients.

“It is therefore key to have the right team in place.   We employ staff who thrive and grow in our innovative work environment and they respond by creating products that help our clients take advantage of new market trends.”

Joint (ad)ventures in the legal sector

Nigel Wallis lo res

We all know that nothing in life is certain. As the actor, director and philosopher Clint Eastwood once said: “If you want a guarantee, buy a toaster.” He also said he’d tried being reasonable and didn’t like it. They should teach this kind of philosophy in law school. One thing in life is reasonably certain though. If you’re a law firm worth your salt, at some point you will be approached by another entity (most probably a work introducer) with a whizzy idea to ‘partner’ with you to ‘help you accelerate your growth’. In commercial speak this means, ‘we’d like to keep feeding you work but we’d also like to share in your profits’. The arrangement may be pitched to you as a joint venture – a win-win no less.
