LexisNexis Australia announced on Wednesday (1 September) the appointment of two new directors to the LexisNexis Pacific team.
Chris Cook has been appointed as director of practice management, responsible for delivering content-enabled workflow solutions to meet the needs of legal professionals. He will undertake initiatives to create workflow and research integration to enable clients to increase productivity and profitability.
Prior to joining LexisNexis, Cook held senior management roles at leading information and technology brands, servicing customers in the natural resources, government, financial services and manufacturing industries. He was previously a partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers, vice president at Computer Sciences Corporation and earlier held management positions with IBM and Fujitsu.
Simon Wilkins has been appointed as the director of sales and will partner with clients to deliver products and services that best meet the needs of legal, government and corporate professionals.
Wilkins will work to develop customer insights to ensure that LexisNexis acts as a valued solutions partner. More recently, he held a senior executive position at CCH Australia overseeing sales, operations and marketing strategy.
Effective immediately, both directors will report directly to the chief executive officer of LexisNexis Pacific, TJ Viljoen.
"Chris and Simon bring extensive experience and industry knowledge to our business," Viljoen said. "I am confident that these new appointments to our executive structure will assist us in continuing to build a customer centric business and deliver sustainable results."
