Commenting on his appointment and the launch of the practice, Ioan said:
“I am delighted to be joining Thomas Murray as the Managing Director of its Cyber Risk practice. As the cyber threat landscape intensifies, it is critical that boards understand and take ownership of the threats their businesses face, without shying away from the opportunities.

Thomas Murray has an extraordinary client base amongst the larger banks, asset owners and global financial institutions. Cyber security is a priority in every industry, and it is incredibly exciting to now be working with firms from start-ups to telecommunications companies and national governments on their security priorities.
