TEMPE, Ariz., November 10, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — IPRO, a legal technology, eDiscovery and data management company, announced today that Ethan Treese has joined the company as Chief Commercial Officer in a move that will enable IPRO to continue to aggressively grow market share through the development of industry-leading products and services.
Prior to joining IPRO, Treese served as Executive Vice President, Americas for Nuix, where he led the North American market through a period of rapid sales and market share growth. Previously, he held a number of executive roles at Dun & Bradstreet where he worked closely with executives and policy makers across large corporations and government. Treese will report to IPRO’s CEO Dean Brown.
“Ethan is a highly accomplished industry leader with global experience. He led the work behind Nuix’s revenue and market growth in North America and played a key role in the company’s successful initial public offering,” IPRO CEO Dean Brown said. “Additionally, he brings a wealth of experience driving rapid sales growth at two large companies and has earned respect for his leadership wherever he has been. I am confident that his collaborative leadership style will be an immediate fit at IPRO.”
Treese joins IPRO as the company enters a new phase of global growth. In the past 18 months alone, more than 125 clients have adopted Live EDA – IPRO’s artificial intelligence-powered, live discovery software – an area of growth that builds on the company’s existing base of more than 350 eDiscovery and Information Governance clients in North America and Europe. Additionally, IDC MarketScape recently placed IPRO in the Leaders category for eDiscovery Early Case Assessment Software.
“I couldn’t have joined IPRO at a better time. The company is growing, has some of the best products and innovations the industry has to offer and has a talented management team with an exciting vision for the future,” said Treese. “IPRO has proven to have a deep understanding of its customers’ and partners’ needs and a solid reputation as an industry leader.”
IPRO has also recently hired Sebastian Sutherland as vice president of sales, corporate markets. Previously, Sutherland was a regional sales director at DISCO and before that he was director of solution sales at Knowable. Sutherland will report to Treese.
Tree replaced Mike Segal, who is stepping down after three years with IPRO as Chief Revenue Officer and has been instrumental in IPRO’s recent growth. IPRO’s revenue doubled, and the company completed two acquisitions under his leadership.
“Mike helped lead IPRO through a period of rapid transition that included the introduction of several new products across our traditional and emerging customer bases, as well as the acquisition and integration of ZyLAB and NetGovern,” said Brown. “We greatly appreciate Mike’s contribution to IPRO and are grateful that he will remain with us until the end of the year to ensure a smooth transition.”
IPRO is a global leader in the development of advanced eDiscovery software and information management for law firms, corporations, government agencies, healthcare organizations and legal service providers. Founded in 1989 and based in Tempe, Arizona, IPRO is known for its best-in-class solutions (Live EDA, OPEN DISCOVERY, ZyLAB ONE and Legal Hold) that deliver early data assessment (EDA) as well as real-time, hold-in-place data preservation. When combining IPRO’s products, there isn’t a legal discovery challenge they can’t handle.
