We are pleased to announce three senior appointments as part of our ambitious transformational change and growth plans.
Dean Dudley, Kiren Bharath and John Seal have all joined the firm’s IT department in newly created roles, from national law firm Shakespeare Martineau (SHMA).
Dean joins as Strategic Delivery Manager with an exceptional background in devising and implementing IT strategies to improve infrastructure and client delivery services.
He has amassed a wealth of expertise within the legal sector having implemented a series of improvements such as software asset management, mobile working, and service management. His experience includes an impressive record in IT strategic work, including the design of a data centre facility and a major IT system upgrade for the Ministry of Defence as well as operational expertise and the ability to ‘think out of the box’, supporting SHMA through COVID and transforming their operations through the delivery of a new End User Compute environment (EUC).
Kiren takes on the role of IT business partner, bringing with her strong business engagement and systems analysis skills, with extensive experience of helping to create improved ways of working and increasing client value through process automation and optimisation.
Whilst at SHMA, she was pivotal in the development of several specialist in-house applications to extend and compliment the key capabilities of the new practice and case management systems introduced. Prior to this, Kiren worked at Gateley plc, where she progressed through several IT roles and helped to drive forward a significant number of strategic projects.
John completes the trio joining as lead solutions architect. Highly experienced within the IT solution architecture field, he has been instrumental in the design and implementation of firmwide business and IT change across a range of projects and initiatives from data centre refreshes, infrastructure, security, and business system change.
His notable work highlights include harmonising the IT systems and operations of both Shakespeare and SGH Martineau during their merger (SHMA) and more recently, the certification of Cyber Essentials Plus for SHMA, an accreditation achieved by less than 10 law firms of that size.
Chief information officer Dal Virdi said: “I am delighted to welcome Dean, Kiren and John to the team. Their knowledge and skills broaden the breadth and depth of our inhouse IT capability and will play a vital part in the transformational projects we will be focussing on to design, develop and build modern and pioneering solutions for the firm and its future success.
“IT plays a significant role in the sustainability of Flint Bishop’s continued growth. Our latest senior appointments into the department, combined with the talent and expertise of the existing inhouse team will be the catalyst to ensure all our staff have the best tools available to provide client value in everything we do and drive the firm forward into its exciting future.”
