Prior to joining Peppermint, Walker was Global Chief Software Architect at Thomson Reuters Elite, a role he held for the last four years after he joined following the acquisition of FWBS.  Mike was a founder of FWBS, and he is renowned as the “brains” behind the company’s very successful MatterSphere matter management product.

“Mike is a well-respected legal tech guru, and is regarded as one of the true innovators in this industry,” said Arlene Adams, CEO, Peppermint.  “Feedback from our customers and others in the market is that the Peppermint platform, which is based on Microsoft Dynamics CRM, is recognised as the most advanced and comprehensive solution currently available to law firms.  Mike’s expertise and leadership, and indeed his strong links with Microsoft, will enable us to take this to the next level again.  This appointment to the Peppermint executive team is only the first - we’re expanding as we respond to increasing market demand, and our ongoing growth and success.  I am thrilled to welcome Mike to the team.”

On joining Peppermint, Walker commented, “This is the ideal opportunity for me to progress my dream and passion of driving innovation, and helping to successfully connect lawyers with technology. I believe that Peppermint’s strategy to embrace a Microsoft industry-standard platform is the right way to deliver world-class tech to legal, and the best way to keep up with the pace of technology change.  I am looking forward to meeting with Peppermint customers to discuss and develop the next stage of our product roadmap, and working with them to ensure we continue to deliver tech that helps them address their strategic challenges.”
