Strengthens Team to Accelerate Company Growth and Innovation for International Client Base
WASHINGTON, D.C. – May 24, 2017 – eTERA Consulting, an international, award-winning leader in data and technology management, announced that it has expanded its team of legal technology experts by three, including a new Chief Information Officer (CIO), to further support the increasing demands of the company’s growing client base.
Jon Forst joins eTERA as CIO and will provide strategic vision and leadership to guide the company as it continues to develop its expansive line of data management services across the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM). Forst will oversee the Client Delivery System (CDS) team and the internal IT infrastructure of the company.
“I look forward to leveraging my background with the Intelligence Community and cloud service providers to help clients better manage risks associated with new technologies including Office 365, the cloud and the IoT, as it pertains to big data in the information governance, regulatory compliance, investigations and litigation spaces,” said Forst. “What attracted me to eTERA is the importance the company puts on providing value to clients. It’s clear to me it’s not just about delivering a good final product – it’s also about taking that next step to truly consult with the client to solve their unique data challenges.”
The onboarding of Forst comes in response to eTERA’s rapid international growth across a variety of industry market segments which include the financial, pharmaceutical, healthcare, insurance, energy and technology sectors, among others.
eTERA also welcomes Dennis Spanoudakis, Senior Consultant and Art Guerrero, Business Development Executive. Both based in California, Spanoudakis and Guerrero will be instrumental in further developing eTERA’s national footprint which will ultimately expand client service and accessibility.
“We vigilantly listen to our clients and keep our finger on the pulse of the industry,” said Scott Holec, eTERA’s President. “As such, we were quick to realize that, with the constantly evolving legal technology landscape, it would behoove us to bring on additional talent to continue to provide clients with top-tier service and support. There is no doubt in my mind that adding these three individuals to the team will even better equip us to handle the dynamic needs of our clients.”
Forst received his bachelor’s degree in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Maryland, Spanoudakis received his MBA at Saint Joseph’s University and Guerrero received his bachelor’s degree in management at California State University – Long Beach.
