Seattle, WA (PRWEB) December 15, 2014
The Garden City Group, Inc. (GCG), the nation’s leading provider of class action, bankruptcy, mass tort and regulatory legal administration services, announces the promotion of Darryl Thompson to vice president, Systems and Technology.
Thompson joined GCG as a director in May 2011 with the Company’s West Coast headquarters in Seattle and was promoted to assistant vice president in 2013.
GCG’s Systems team is integrally involved in each of the Company’s hundreds of active projects, across all service lines and offices nationally. The team develops and launches customized, state-of-the-art, secure databases and claim systems for each project, with specifications varying based on client needs and project deliverables.
Under Thompson’s leadership over the past three years, GCG’s West Coast systems group has executed innovative client-interactive solutions providing 24-hour, every day secure, remote access to project data and reporting across a diverse range of case types. Most recently, Thompson has taken the lead on the technology demands for the national General Motors Ignition Switch compensation program.
Moreover, since joining GCG, Thompson has spearheaded the design and launch of GCG’s new proprietary case management system, which has streamlined project operations across all GCG offices nationally and driven organizational efficiencies.
“Darryl is a proven technology professional with the performance, creativity and commitment to service that are the hallmarks of every matter that GCG handles,” said Jennifer Keough, GCG’s chief operating officer. “His technology solutions are compelling and innovative, and his leadership has translated into exceptional deliverables for GCG’s clients, often on very tight timeframes.”
“It’s a real honor to be part of GCG’s leadership team,” said Thompson. “It is an exciting place to work. The Company’s systems must be robust enough to house massive amounts of data, but nimble enough to allow for customized solutions, different levels of local and remote access and security clearance, and scalability based on project demands. It’s hard to imagine a more challenging, but rewarding, set of demands to meet every day.”
Thompson graduated from Washington State University with a degree in Management Information Systems.
