IT leader joins Macpherson Kelley

Macpherson Kelley has named Andrew Mitchell as its new chief information officer.

“Andrew is an outstanding leader who has led major IT transformations for law firms and industrial companies in Australia and overseas,” said Steve Parker, Macpherson Kelley chief executive. “Andrew will drive our continuing innovation in technology to ensure our teams are working effectively and efficiently and delivering for clients.”

Mitchell makes the move from Xenith IP Group, where he was CIO and operations director. He was also previously CIO and director of national operations of Griffith Hack, which is a part of the Xenith group. Xenith agreed to merge with fellow ASX-listed IP firm QANTM Intellectual Property late last year.

Prior to Griffith Hack and Xenith IP, he was director of technology and innovation at Lander & Rogers, CIO at Gilbert + Tobin, Asia-Pacific IT director at Schering-Plough Pharmaceuticals, and IT manager at Unilever Australasia.

Macpherson Kelley’s most recent CIO was Matt Purves, who moved to RMBL Investments at the start of the year.
