Doing the eDiscovery C-Suite Shuffle

I gently declined to cover multiple recent c-suite appointments because I could not answer my “Why should you care?” query. When reviewed en masse, the executive shuffling points to some interesting eDiscovery market trends. Below are some 2024 executive appointments with some of their prior companies.
