Murria leaves DWF for ‘technology opportunities’

Vin Murria

Manchester-headquartered international law firm DWF Group plc said on Wednesday that independent non-executive director Vin Murria has decided to resign from its board with immediate effect.

Murria will also step down as a member of the company’s audit, risk, remuneration and nomination committees at the same time. 

“Vin has decided to step down in order to give her more time to pursue new business opportunities in the technology arena,” said DWF.

Murria was founder and CEO of Advanced Computer Software Group plc and Computer Software Group plc. Both were acquired by private equity firms in 2007 and 2015 respectively.

She has been an operating partner at HG Capital since 2016.

Murria said: “It is with regret that I step down from my role at DWF to focus on a number of new business opportunities. 

“DWF is a great business, which is well positioned to continue setting the pace of change in the legal industry through its differentiated approach.   

“It continues to be an excellent investment proposition and, as a shareholder myself, I look forward to keeping abreast of DWF’s growth journey. 

“I will miss the board and the great team at DWF and wish them all the very best for the future.”

DWF chairman Jonathan Bloomer said: “Since joining the board in November 2018 in advance of our IPO, Vin has made a real contribution to the deliberations of the DWF board and we have particularly appreciated her invaluable advice and insights.

“We have benefitted greatly from her wealth of experience, challenge and energy.

“She leaves with our greatest appreciation and warmest wishes for her future endeavours.”
