Converge Technology Specialists  (Converge TS) has today announced the appointment of Peter Gill to its board of directors as Chief Commercial Officer. Bringing a wealth of legal sector experience to the company, Peter most recently spent four years at Thomson Reuters Elite where he led the EMEA sales team to achieve year-on-year revenue growth. His background includes starting and running his own business and leading Sales teams at Advanced Legal, Wolters Kluwer and LexisNexis over a 30-year period.
Converge TS has achieved exceptional organic growth – over 50% revenue growth year on year in the last three years – and following recent investment from private equity firm Tenzing, the company is pursuing a focused strategy to firmly position Converge TS as the leading cloud provider to the legal sector.
“The company’s track record of previous success, coupled with their unique position in a growing market, means it’s an exciting time to join Converge TS” said Peter. “Firms are recognising the benefit of partnering with a sector specialist whose service is tailored to the unique requirements of law firms. With many firms looking to modernise their IT and shift to a cloud first strategy over the next three years, Converge TS is well-positioned to take advantage of this opportunity.”
Nigel Wright, CEO for Converge TS, said “We’re very pleased to have Peter on board, his experience of working at a senior leadership level in dynamic and changing environments will be invaluable in delivering our strategy over the coming years. Our goal is to become the No. 1 cloud provider to the UK legal sector, achieved mainly by organic growth but also by selected strategic acquisitions. This is the first of a number of high profile appointments for Converge TS and represents the first step to taking the company into the next phase of growth.”
