rradar appoints new commercial director as part of growth strategy

rradar, the litigation and commercial law firm which specialises in digital and insurance innovation, has appointed Richard Sheridan as its new commercial director.

Richard joins Hull-based rradar from global insurance claims management firm Sedgwick International UK.

In this newly-created role, Richard will report directly to rradar’s CEO Gary Gallen and will be a key member of rradar’s senior leadership team.

Gary explained: “This is a very significant appointment for us as we embark on a sustained period of growth. Richard will refine and implement our commercial plan, centred on a programme of diversification and development to achieve our vision of becoming a next generation legal services business, providing first-class legal and other business services through a human and digital hybrid.

“He will be responsible for overseeing our product development and pricing, identifying new market opportunities, developing and implementing a targeted sales strategy, overseeing client relationship management and ensuring high client satisfaction.

“We pride ourselves on transforming how legal services are accessed and Richard’s appointment will help us to deliver our vision as part of our five-year business strategy. It is crucial to have someone of Richard’s calibre and high-level experience on board, complementing our existing leadership capabilities. This will ensure we are ready to meet the challenges and growth opportunities ahead for the rradar team.”

Richard commented: “This is a tremendously exciting opportunity and challenge for me. I am delighted to be joining such a progressive and innovative firm as rradar, especially at a time when the company is embarking on a sustained growth strategy.

“It is a privilege to be a member of the senior leadership team and I believe that my extensive experience as a director with Sedgwick, and with the Capita Group before that, will enable me to make a significant contribution to rradar’s expansion and success over the coming months and years.”

Richard brings extensive experience to rradar as an innovation and corporate business leader, having served in senior roles in insurance, business process outsourcing and professional services. He has over 25 years’ experience in building and growing long-term client relationships based on integrity, innovation and service delivery coupled with a strong record in sales and new proposition development.

Richard’s move follows hard on the heels of recent high-profile leadership appointments of Andy Clarke as rradar’s chief technology officer and Kieran Rigby as non-executive director to rradar’s board.
