Artificial Intelligence provider RAVN Systems has appointed former Ashurst CIO David Lumsden as its new CEO.
Lumsden, who is also formerly CEO of technology provider Tikit Group and who joined RAVN last year as chief strategy officer (CSO), replaces Peter Wallqvist, one of the founders of RAVN. Wallqvist will now become RAVN’s CSO.
Lumsden has more than 30 years’ experience in the legal IT and professional services market. He was CEO of Tikit Group between 2000 and 2013 and spent seven years as CIO at Ashurst.
“RAVN has a strong reputation in the markets we’re currently operating in,” said Lumsden. “Having moved from a start-up to a medium-sized business, RAVN has achieved a lot to date and has become a strong brand. I’m looking forward to working with Peter and the rest of the leadership team to drive the business in the next stage of growth’.
