Recommind Appoints SaaS Veteran Steve King as Chief Executive Officer

RecommindLogoSAN FRANCISCO, CA — (Marketwired) — 09/11/15 — Recommind, a leader in advanced analytics software, today announced the appointment of Steve King as Chief Executive Officer. A key member of Recommind’s Board of Directors for the past five years, King is the former president and CEO of DocuSign, a pioneer in eSignatures and the global standard for digital transaction management. Recommind co-founder Bob Tennant will remain with the company as Executive Chairman and will focus on corporate and product strategy.

“Over the last 13 years, our powerful analytics have helped our customers find the information that matters to win their cases and run their businesses,” said Bob Tennant, Executive Chairman of Recommind. “SaaS is the future of managing and analyzing unstructured information, and now that we have completed a multi-year investment in our SaaS platform, the time is right for an exceptional SaaS executive like Steve to take the helm. Steve’s skills and experience will be invaluable as we lead the company into this next phase of growth.”

Before joining DocuSign, King was CEO at Zantaz, a leader in cloud-based content archiving and eDiscovery solutions. Under his seven-year leadership, the company attained a four-fold increase in revenues from 2001 to 2005. In 2007, Zantaz was acquired by The Autonomy Group, now a key part of HP’s Big Data and Information Governance software strategy.

King’s appointment aligns with Recommind’s heightened focus on SaaS deployment for eDiscovery, investigations and contract analysis for the legal industry. Axcelerate SaaS is a highly secure, subscription-based hosted mode of the company’s award-winning eDiscovery platform. Recommind’s additional applications include Perceptiv Contracts Analysis for gleaning key information from over-the-counter derivatives agreements, and Decisiv Search for quickly finding internal information across legal enterprises.

“I joined Recommind’s board five years ago because I realized the company’s powerful analytics platform would disrupt not only eDiscovery, but any industry requiring rapid insight into massive amounts of unstructured data,” said Steve King, CEO, Recommind. “My job now is to work with our customers, partners and the team here at Recommind through this next phase of growth.”
