New commercial director joins rradar

Litigation and commercial law firm rradar has appointed Richard Sheridan as its new commercial director.

Sheridan (pictured) joined Hull-headquartered rradar from global insurance claims management firm Sedgwick International UK.

In this newly created role, Sheridan will report directly to rradar’s chief executive officer, Gary Gallen, and will be a key member of the law firm’s senior leadership team.

As commercial director, Sheridan is charged with refining and implementing the law firm’s commercial plan, overseeing product development and pricing, identifying new market opportunities, developing and implementing a targeted sales strategy, spearheading client relationship management, and ensuring high client satisfaction.

Commenting on the appointment, Gallen said: “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.”

Sheridan added: “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.”

Sheridan’s move follows other high-profile leadership appointments, including Andy Clarke as rradar’s chief technology officer and Kieran Rigby as non-executive director to the firm’s board.
