All legal sectors
2 March 2021

The Arken team is continuing to expand and we're thrilled to welcome Cormac Dunne, Strategic Relationship Manager, into the Arken family. Here's some information so you can get to know him better...

Cormac Dunne, Strategic Relationship Manager

When did you start at Arken? February 2021

Responsible for: Establishing, evolving, and executing mutually beneficial Strategic Partnerships that drive Arken’s growth ambition.

2021 in 3 words: Baby No.2 due!

Where is your favourite place to be? In a bar after a day's skiing!

Best place you've travelled to? Barbados

Favourite line from a movie? "Never rat on your friends, and always keep your mouth shut." (Goodfellas)

If you could pick anyone, who would be your mentor? I rely heavily on the whole Arken team to get me up to speed at the moment, but a special mention to Pippa Shepherd (Head of Customer Engagement), Dave Newick (CEO) and Grainne Dunne (Customer Success Manager, and no relation!) who between them pretty much know it all!

How would you best describe Arken? Friendly, focused, ambitious.

Anything that would surprise us about you? I’m yet to meet any of my colleagues in person due to the current situation in the world, so just to warn them I’m taller than I appear on Zoom - 6 foot 5!

This year I will mostly be? Changing nappies...

Top productivity tip? Prioritise!

Something you learned in the last week? There is no limit to the number of times a two-year-old will ask ‘why?’ in a day...

If you could meet anyone, who would it be? Donald Trump (weirdly fascinated by him - so many questions...!)

Why have you made the move into legal technology? Having spent most of my career in start-ups and FMCG, I wanted to make the move to an ambitious SaaS organisation, and Arken fits perfectly given the opportunity and scope to digitise complex legal processes whilst continuously improving our clients' experience. (Also, being based near me in Kent is a plus – I definitely won’t miss the daily commute to London!)

 

Welcome to the team Cormac, we're excited to have you on board!
