Lake Success, NY (August 4, 2014) –The Garden City Group, Inc. (GCG), the leading provider of legal administration services, is pleased to announce the promotion of Christi Cannon to vice president of marketing and client relations.
“During my career —as a litigator and then working with GCG for the past seven years —I’ve experienced first-hand why GCG is the industry leader. Its executive team has built a truly national company with unmatched physical resources, industry-leading experience in complex and important matters, and more professionals —including more than 100 attorneys — than any other administrator,” said Christi Cannon. “GCG’s services and responsiveness absolutely market themselves throughout every project we handle, and to be entrusted with communicating the company’s story and achievements to our clients and the marketplace is a real honor.”
Cannon’s background encompasses more than two decades of legal and industry experience. At GCG, she has worked with the company’s clients nationally to develop business across GCG’s service lines. With her promotion to the newly-created position director of Client Relations in 2011 and thereafter to vice president of Client Relations in 2013, she focused on identifying client needs and translating those needs to deliverables for GCG’s Operations teams, as well as executing on strategic client relationships and market presence for the company. She has contributed materially to some of GCG’s most complex administrations, including the Dell Securities Litigation, the Cobb EMC Litigation, and the Deepwater Horizon Economic Settlement Program. Cannon regularly speaks at industry events in the United States and overseas.
“Christi brings a real resonance to this role,” said David Isaac, chief executive officer at GCG. “With experience as a litigator and GCG client, and then in business development for the company, later evaluating and managing its strategic client relationships, and all the while engaging in pivotal operations roles, she has a demonstrated understanding of the demands in our industry and GCG’s solutions to meet them. With GCG entering its 30th year in business, the company’s story becomes even more compelling. We’re glad to have Christi helping us tell it.”
A native of Scottsboro, Alabama, Cannon is a graduate of Auburn University and Emory University School of Law. She lives in Atlanta, Georgia.
