Shaun Bonett, Chairman of Litigation Lending welcomes the appointment of Stephen Conrad as Chief Executive Officer
After an extensive search we are delighted to announce that we have appointed Steve Conrad as the new CEO of LLS.
Steve is extraordinarily well qualified for this role with his most recent work as advisor, Executive Director and CFO of one of our peers, Litigation Capital Management Limited (LCM).
During Steve’s time at LCM they undertook capital raisings on the ASX (together with a delisting from the ASX and subsequent listing on the London Stock Exchange) and LSE, expansion of the business into new geographies of Asia and Europe, together with the establishment of an asset management platform raising an inaugural fund and setting up of an AFSL. Prior to his time at LCM, Steve was an independent advisor specialising in asset management and infrastructure, with a 25 year career in financial markets working for global banks in Singapore, Hong Kong and Sydney.
One of the key considerations for our selection of CEO was to bring relevant transactional experience in-house in the areas of capital and strategy. Steve has unparalleled experience in raising capital and going through the IPO process with LCM, which is a high priority for consideration at LLS. Steve joins Jeff Chamberlain as CFO and Lisa Brentnall and Kim May as senior Litigation Managers who round out the executive team.
I am thrilled to welcome Steve to the LLS team and look forward to Steve and the team taking what has been a very successful business to the next level. Steve started with LLS on 2 July 2020.
