As the Chief Technology Officer at Harper James, Craig's primary focus is on leveraging advanced technologies, particularly AI, to enhance operational efficiency and client service. His responsibilities include developing sophisticated tools, leading the technology strategy, managing system integrations, and providing robust tech support to the team. Craig's role is integral in driving innovation to improve lawyer productivity, optimise client experience, and to position Harper James at the forefront of the legal sector.

With over 20 years’ experience in technology and leadership, he brings a wealth of knowledge to Harper James. Craig's previous role as Director of Software Development at eTech Solutions was a turning point, where he expanded the team significantly and implemented agile practices. As CTO at TelXL Limited, he led the team through a major transformation, including the migration of legacy systems to modern technologies and the introduction of cloud-based solutions.

During Craig's tenure as CTO at CoreLogic UK, he was responsible for integrating and deploying a surveying platform in the USA, which significantly improved efficiency and accuracy.
