Lexicon Appoints New VP
Last June, I wrote here about Lexicon, a new law practice management platform with a unique twist — offering not only software, but also tight-knit integration with related services integral to a law practice, such as virtual receptionists, marketing and recruiting. Now, the company has named Lori Moser as its first vice president of strategy, mergers & acquisitions, where she will be responsible for evaluating corporate investments, developing critical insights, and driving the execution of strategic plans to enhance the company’s growth.
Moser joins Lexicon after serving as a director at R.L. Hulett & Company, an investment and banking firm in St. Louis, where she focused on buying and selling side engagements for privately-held businesses. Previously, she spent more than 20 years with Emerson Electric, a Fortune 500 company based in St. Louis, where she held various business development leadership roles, including M&A, sales, marketing, and general management.
