LegalTech Summize has appointed a chief revenue officer as it focuses on expansion and growth.

The Manchester firm which recently expanded into North America – opening a base in Boston – welcomes Rahul Saggar, who has 18 years of experience working in and leading high-growth sales teams including AppSense and Checkpoint.

Summize is a contract lifecycle management disrupter which features on our GM 125 Rising Stars of Business list.

Saggar will be responsible for revenue generation at the company, leading the global sales team in their quest to help businesses streamline their contract management processes using technology and AI.

Summize takes a different approach to solving the contract challenge by focusing on creating a user-friendly experience within existing work tools such as Microsoft Word, Teams, Slack and Outlook.

“The legal sector, and in-house teams in particular, are undergoing major transformation driven by a desire to adopt technology. With the explosion of AI and a drive for more automation, more and more teams are looking to solutions like Summize to save them time and remove legal bottlenecks,” said Saggar.

“It’s an exciting time to be part of Summize as there is a very real need for the technology, as proven by the global brands including Huel, Miami Heat, Revolut and Seat Geek benefiting from our differentiated approach to CLM. I am really excited to join the Summize leadership team and contribute to this transformative journey in the years ahead.”

Tom Dunlop, CEO of Summize, added: “Since we launched Summize, we’ve had our sights set firmly on expansion both in the UK and across new markets. We are extremely excited to have Rahul on board to spearhead our next phase of growth.”
