Droit, the New York, London and Sydney based technology firm at the forefront

of computational law, announces the appointment of Craig Butterworth as Chief

Commercial Officer.


Reporting to Brock Arnason, Founder and Chief Executive, Craig joins the Droit

executive team to lead the firm's commercial activities. Based in London with

global responsibility, Mr. Butterworth will play a critical role in

accelerating Droit's growth through increased strategic partnerships, expanded

client relationships and greater brand awareness.


"We are delighted to welcome Craig to Droit," said Brock Arnason. "Our unique

market-leading position will benefit greatly from Craig's vision, commercial

drive and passion for digital transformation. Droit provides the perfect

platform for leveraging Craig's deep industry and technology experience in

growing our business."


Craig joins Droit from Symphony where he was Global Head of Sales and Account

technology which makes the act of regulatory decision-making profoundly simple,

intelligent, fast, repeatable, auditable and entirely automated. Droit's

ability to provide market-leading decision-making capability is going to become

ever more critical for firms to provide the highest levels of client service,

all whilst staying on the right side of the rules. I firmly believe Droit is

the right firm at the right time, and for that reason, I couldn't be happier to
