CHICAGO, Sept. 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Inventus, a leading international legal support services provider, today announced that Noel Kilby will retire as Chief Operating and Technical Officer of Inventus, effective September 28, 2018. Mr. Kilby has served as COO of Inventus since August 2017 and as CTO since March 2015 after having sold UNIFIED—the company he co-founded with Paul Mankoo in 2009—to Inventus.
"Inventus is a great company and I wish all my colleagues and friends there every success in the future," said Mr. Kilby. "It is with sadness that I retire from Inventus, which has been my home for the past several years. However, the company I leave continues to grow in its success, and it is only for that reason that I now find the opportunity to pursue other priorities in life outside of day-to-day work and the legal sector. I know that with the amazing team continuing to drive the business forward further success is guaranteed."
"Noel's contributions over the last eight years have been invaluable in building a leading, global provider of legal support services," said Paul Mankoo, CEO of Inventus. "Noel is a remarkable co-founder, entrepreneur, and friend who has provided leadership and innovation that have contributed much to the company's success and continued excellence and growth. We wish him all the best for the future. The Inventus business continues to achieve record performance and growth and there are no other organizational changes at this time"
Under Mr. Mankoo's continued leadership as CEO, Inventus has implemented a plan to transition Mr. Kilby's responsibilities to the capable team he has built.
