Legal Futures Associate DAS Group has announced the appointment of Paul Timmins as chief operating officer (COO).

The role of COO is a newly created position within the group and is tasked with a wide range of responsibilities to meet the requirement that the operations of the fast-growing nature of the group respond to the ever-increasing needs of the market. 

DAS Group chief executive Paul Asplin said: “The creation of this very senior position is a reflection on the remarkable growth that the group has achieved over the years.

“Paul will be working directly with me in a number of areas, especially those related to new projects. The high level nature of this appointment has meant that Paul has also been appointed to the board as a director.”

Paul Timmins joined DAS in 2008 as head of compliance and risk management, later becoming head of risk and HR.

Mr Timmins said: “I’m delighted to be the first COO of the DAS Group and am already working on very interesting projects that will aid our continued strong growth.”
