As Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at Recommind, he was closely linked in my mind with the development of predictive coding – not just Recommind’s great progress with that technology, but with the technology itself and its acceptance by lawyers for eDiscovery purposes.
He has also been an eloquent advocate of information governance as Recommind broadened its scope in that direction. Wearing my Recommind hat, as it were, I am sorry to see him leave.
On AccessData’s behalf, however, I am delighted to see him there, with a broader and very different portfolio of products in his care. AccessData already has a strong marketing team (see my newly-posted video of Caitlin Murphy talking about mobile forensics, for example) and Craig Carpenter will bring new ideas.
There is a press release here about Craig’s appointment. I look forward to meeting up with him shortly in his new capacity.
