Peppermint Technology has strengthened its executive team with the appointment of Niki Redwood as chief financial officer. 

The Nottingham-based firm provides cloud-based case and matter management, client engagement, document management and financial management solutions to top law firms and other legal services organisations. 

Redwood will leverage her extensive experience leading financial strategy and operations, including fund raising and managing investor relations, in growing technology organisations.  

She joins Peppermint from her role as CFO at Microsoft partner Nasstar, a leading provider of managed IT and cloud services to a range of industries, including many UK law firms. 

“The commercial proposition of a software as a service (SaaS) business has long-term, strategic customer partnerships at its core – something that aligns very much with my background and strengths,” she said. 

“From my interactions with the Peppermint board and executive team, it is clear that a lot of fantastic work has gone into evolving the product, strategic focus and customer experience over the last few years.  

“The fact that a considerable number of new customers have selected Peppermint’s solutions in 2020 just underlines this. Our team is poised for great success, and I can’t wait to help execute on the strategy.” 

Gary Young, CEO at Peppermint, commented: “I am delighted to welcome Niki to the Peppermint board and team.  

“Her skills and experience will be of great benefit to the organisation as we set out to deliver the next phase of our strategy and growth.  

“She joins us with a deep understanding of how to deliver value to customers and how to maximise the already strong relationship with our strategic partner Microsoft. It’s fantastic to add her expertise to the Peppermint leadership team and I am very much looking forward to working with her.”
