LegalShield on Tuesday announced two board appointments, including company CEO Jeff Bell and Pete Jarvis, Vice President of technology solutions firm TidalScale.
The new additions to the board will replace outgoing directors Gil Anderson, CEO of Allant, and Frank Sowinski of LegalShield investor MidOcean Partners.
Prior to joining the legal services provider in 2014, Bell was a partner at venture capital firm NCT Ventures. He also has extensive experience in marketing and corporate leadership, having served—and earned numerous accolades—as Vice President of Global Marketing at Microsoft’s Interactive Entertainment Business (maker of Xbox) and Vice President of the Chrysler and Jeep brands.
Since Bell stepped into the role of CEO, LegalShield has seen production increase 28 percent and active members increase 10 percent to more than 1.5 million.
Jarvis brings to the board a history of technology innovation and management, particularly in the realm of emerging knowledge and intellectual property. Like Bell’s, his career has included a stint at Microsoft, as well as Intellectual Ventures, Bell Northern Research and 3Com. Jarvis is one of the IAM Strategy 300, a list of the world’s top intellectual property strategists published by IAM magazine.
“Jeff’s success as CEO and Pete’s pioneering work with enterprise software make them extremely valuable additions,” said Rip Mason, Chairman of the Board. “We also want to thank Gil and Frank for the significant contributions they made in their tenure on the LegalShield board of directors.”
Earlier this month, LegalShield announced four new additions to its Office of the Chief Executive, further strengthening its leadership team amid an ongoing rollout of new tech-based products and services.
