10 Feb Two Executives Join Ediscovery Leadership Team at DISCO
Fastest growing ediscovery solution provider announces VP of Sales and VP of Engineering & Product Development Hires
Houston, TX — Disco introduces newest members of its leadership team
Legal technology company CS Disco Inc., based in Houston, Texas, has announced two executives have joined the Disco ediscovery team, including a vice president of sales and a vice president of engineering and product development.
With more than 20 years’ experience as a specialist in building high performance Software as a Service (SaaS) sales and marketing teams, Tom Benwell joins Disco as vice president of sales. In his previous position, Benwell served as vice president of worldwide sales for FuelQuest, a provider of on-demand, web-based supply chain management and tax automation software and services for fuel suppliers, distributors and buyers in global downstream energy. FuelQuest was sold to Danaher-Veeder-Root in August of 2014.
“Tom is a critical new addition to our leadership team,” according to Disco CEO Kiwi Camara. “He will be instrumental in expanding on our success as the fastest-growing technology solution in ediscovery with more than 300 law firm, enterprise and government agency customers, including 40 of the AmLaw 200.”
Calling on more than 25 years’ experience in developing highly scalable technology platforms and high velocity product development organizations, Keith Zoellner joins Disco as vice president of engineering and product development. During the last 15 years Zoellner has developed a proven track record of taking early stage start up technology organizations and guiding them through substantial growth. Most recently he facilitated large-scale growth at Spredfast in Austin, Texas, a market leading social media management organization. Prior to that, Zoellner spent seven years at StoredIQ, where he developed a highly scalable categorization and indexing platform for the legal tech market that was later sold to IBM.
“Keith’s rare combination of domain experience from StoredIQ, and repeated success scaling startup engineering organizations, make him an invaluable member of our executive leadership as we grow our engineering team in 2015,” Camara said.
“With these two key hires, and the recent influx of capital from our $10 million Series B financing” he explained, “Disco is poised to make 2015 a breakthrough year in customer growth and market positioning as the leading ediscovery solution developed by lawyers, for lawyers.”
