As Chief Innovation Officer, Bishai will focus on ensuring the effective implementation of significant projects and tools that impact the firm’s work. She is passionate about the utilization of technology, identifying gaps and implementing solutions and efficient processes, and working with and developing collaborative teams to enhance our service delivery. The newly created innovation function that she will oversee is aimed at identifying new and novel ways to use data, technology and people to connect dots across business teams and functional areas. It combines the teams responsible for large-scale project management, reference and research and competitive intelligence.
