Richard is Quill's IT Director, a position held for 10 years. He's responsible for the ongoing development of our Interactive legal accounts, case management and document management software by enhancing existing features and adding new functionality to fulfil market requirements.
Over recent months, Richard helped launch our Police Station App, fully synchronised with Interactive, to support criminal lawyers attending station visits. This is just one of many positive steps taken to evolve our software solutions to meet the exacting demands of present-day, busy lawyers and their back office teams, another of which was moving our entire user base (both clients and staff) from on-premise servers to a brand new cloud-based infrastructure.
Having extended our dedicated Brighton-based R&D branch from three to twelve employees including testers and a product manager, Richard and his team constantly research new technologies and industry trends then develop our applications with modern processes and quality at the heart of every project.
Richard has actually worked at Quill for some 18 years, beginning as R&D Manager and progressing to Group IT Manager before taking up his current post in 2008. As a key member of our board of directors, Richard plays a major role in devising Quill's strategic direction.
Married with two teenage sons, Richard is a keen runner and completed the Vitality Brighton Half Marathon, raising money for Cancer Research UK in the process.
