Relativity Welcomes Phil Saunders as CEO
Relativity, a global legal and compliance technology company, today announced the appointment of Phil Saunders as CEO. Saunders has more than three decades of operating experience in the technology industry, most recently as CEO of Cornerstone OnDemand, the pioneer and global leader in talent experience software-as-a-service (SaaS).
"Relativity is a rare company with both exceptional industry leadership and significant opportunities ahead," said Saunders. "RelativityOne is already the market leader in its category with so much potential to continue to innovate in e-discovery, digital investigations, and beyond. I'm excited to work with Relativity's employees and its ecosystem to deliver compelling technology solutions for the legal and compliance sectors."
It seems that the Pandemic taught even CEO’s that it is okay to step back and reevaluate their futures. Some might interpret Mike Gamson relinquishing the CEO role as a sign that Relativity’s dominance of the eDiscovery platform market may be slipping. I see an executive who achieved his vision with an investment deal that pushed Relativity’s valuation to $3.6 billion and completed 3 acquisitions that expanded Relativity’s customer base beyond eDiscovery and review. It will be interesting to see the vison of the new hand at Relativity’s helm, Phil Saunders.
