A GROWING legal sector IT specialist has appointed its first finance director.

Angela McNaughton is the first finance director of SproutIT, having spent 11 years in the professional services sector with NatWest and then Schillings. The chartered management accountant joined SproutIT as business manager in March this year.

She has gained experience in using research, analysis, planning and negotiation skills to successfully develop business initiatives while maximising profit, minimising cost and driving continuous change.

SproutIT describes her “effective communication and managerial skills assist in motivating staff to strive for professionalism both for themselves and the company”.

Her appointment comes as the company has launched SproutCloud, a new cloud-based connectivity tool for the legal sector. It posted revenue growth of 35% in the last year.

Director Matt Torrens said, “We were impressed with Angela and believe her to be an excellent fit for the organisation. She is smart, passionate and committed and we are delighted to have her join the Sprout management team.

“Throughout every stage of the client engagement, our focus is on the bigger picture of our clients’ ambitions, as well as the technology itself – Angela’s appointment will help us to drive that focus. We look forward to building upon our successes, and charting an exciting course for Sprout’s future.”
