mmadigital announces two new executives to drive growth

Mark Cappell and Steve Evans join as Non-Executive Chairman and Chief Financial Officer respectively.

mmadigital, lead generation specialists for the legal sector, has appointed two new executive hires to help steer the firm’s ambitious growth plans.

The appointments come on the back of the news that the business has secured private equity funding thanks to an investment round led by Rockpool Investments LLP.

Mark Cappell has a long and successful track record in the technology sector with extensive experience working with private equity firms in growth situations. He has been CEO of five private equity backed companies and has added in excess of £300m for investors.

As Non-Executive Chairman, Cappell will provide strategic business advice to accelerate future acquisitions, fuel innovation and drive overall business growth. He says: “It is obvious that mmadigital is embarking on a very exciting period of growth with further investment secured and ready to be exploited. With such bright prospects, there couldn’t be a better time to join the business and share my insights and expertise.”

Steve Evans has a wealth of experience working with private equity firms and funders across the professional, business and financial services sectors. Prior to joining mmadigital, he held senior finance roles at Love Energy Savings, thinkmoney and One Advice Group, and spent a decade in the legal sector.

In his role as Chief Financial Officer, Steve will be responsible for optimising financial performance and protecting the long-term interests of stakeholders as the business goes through a critical phase of growth. He adds: “mmadigital has quickly established itself as a leader in lead generation in the legal sector, and I see tremendous opportunities for the company to diversify. I look forward to helping the team prepare for further expansion into new areas.” 

On announcing the new appointments, Dez Derry, mmadigital’s CEO and Founder says: “I am incredibly pleased that Mark and Steve are joining us at what is a significant period of growth. This is the perfect time to expand our leadership team as we look to bolster our expansion efforts and diversify our offerings. Both Mark and Steve have broad strategic and commercial expertise gained with a number of leading companies, and their input will be vital as we bring the company to the next level.

“We also have further significant appointments on the horizon which marks the start on an exciting 2022 for us.”
