Versatile Bamboo gets fresh perspectives with new marketing leader
Matt Church joins Bamboo Group as Head of Business Development and Marketing.
Matt brings a unique and diverse skill set to Bamboo, with a distinguished track record in business management and a history of steering organisations towards accelerated growth. This appointment signifies Bamboo's commitment to assembling a team of the best possible talent with a wide range of expertise from within and outside legal services. Matt’s arrival follows the recent news that Graham Wood joins the group to lead resourcing and recruitment from 6 November 2023.
Hailing from a background in commercial and private finance, as well as professional sports, Matt Church is a seasoned Business Management Professional. He has held various senior roles, demonstrating his skills in developing commercial strategies in both B2B and B2C sectors. His achievements span various industries, including the successful commercialisation of sports, entertainment, and media sectors.
Speaking of his passion, Matt Church shared, "For me, the linchpins of organisational success are an empowering culture, visionary leadership, and unwavering commitment to hard work. I firmly believe that every day presents exciting challenges and incredible opportunities. It’s clear that Bamboo has a recipe for positive change in the legal sector. The unique approach and innovative thinking demonstrated by Bamboo's leadership is nothing short of visionary."
In addition to his professional accomplishments, Matt Church also serves as a Member of the Board of Trustees at MEDSERVE Wales, a charity that contributes to the provision of enhanced medical care to the people of Wales.
Bamboo is well-known for its innovative approach to the legal services sector, as demonstrated by their recent acquisition of Hawkins Hatton, a Midlands law firm. This acquisition is part of Bamboo's strategy to create an ecosystem that supports small to mid-sized law firms, offering them relief from the complexities of regulation, insurance, financial management, technology, and administration.
Michael Burne, Founder of Bamboo, expressed his excitement about the appointment, stating, "Matt Church brings a dynamic skill set and experience from the commercial and private finance sectors. It’s refreshing for us that he comes from outside the traditional law industry particularly demonstrated by his deep understanding of the unique dynamics of commercialising professional sports and the intricate client relationship management that requires. His expertise is a valuable addition to our team and aligns perfectly with Bamboo's vision. We anticipate that Matt's contributions will not only strengthen our business development and marketing efforts, but also enhance our capacity to create an ecosystem that supports small to mid-sized law firms in navigating the ever-evolving legal landscape.
With Graham and now Matt on board, we are excited about the future and foresee a series of strategic moves that will continue a cultural shift towards a group ecosystem that benefits from the right people, with the right skills, doing the right things, in the right way at the right time."
