Bradley Kay

An Australian law firm has revealed it has appointed a new chief information officer.

Maddocks has announced it has nabbed Bradley Kay (pictured) from Pitcher Partners to lead the firm’s information technology team.

In his new role, Mr Kay will be responsible for driving Maddocks’ innovation strategy.

He brings more than 20 years’ experience to his new role, having been involved in leading technological change at some of Australia’s largest professional services firms and companies, such as KPMG and Spotless Group.

Maddocks CEO Michelle Dixon said Mr Kay’s appointment was the continuation of significant investment in technology by the firm.

“Last year we concluded a complete upgrade of our technology platforms to allow us to provide seamless service to our clients and for our people to be mobile and flexible,” Ms Dixon said.

“We are also investing in implementing innovative ideas generated by our people. In 2016, for example, we launched a market-leading electronic contracts platform for our developer clients and we are currently examining a long list of potential new approaches to the way we deliver our services.”

Ms Dixon noted that Mr Kay would be “integral in driving Maddocks' technology offering”.

“Our view is that law firms who invest cleverly in technology will emerge the strongest from this period of immense change in the legal sector,” she said.

“Bradley’s prior experience in devising and driving strategy to improve the way that the companies he has worked for engage with their clients was a significant factor in his appointment.”

Mr Kay said he was excited to be joining the firm “during a transformative time in the legal sector”.

“The ability to leverage technology for the benefit of our people and our clients is a given; the challenge in a digital economy is to create truly human-centred experiences,” he said.

“We are focusing our energy on those experiences that will create competitive advantage and value for our clients.”
