Denver, CO (PRWEB) September 18, 2006
Catalyst Repository Systems, a leading provider of secure online repository systems for complex legal matters, announced that former Sun Microsystems executive Bill Mooz has joined the company as Vice President, Strategy & Product. Mooz brings Catalyst–and its legal, financial and insurance clients–more than 20 years of business and legal experience, most recently at Sun Microsystems where he grew a utility computing service business from a skunk-works initiative into a substantial global operation.
Catalyst’s offerings include Catalyst XE, which helps professional teams work together on complex legal and financial matters, and Catalyst Repository, which provides a hosted review platform for electronic discovery, due diligence, compliance and other document-intensive matters. “We deliver both of these products using a ‘software as a service’ model and, as a proven leader in utility computing, Bill is a natural to help us grow this business to the next level,” explained John Tredennick, Catalyst’s CEO. “Bill also has run strategy and business development for Sun’s services division which will serve him well in helping Catalyst build out its products, customer base and network of alliance partners.”
“Bill also has an extensive legal background, which makes him doubly attractive,” Tredennick added. “He was a partner at one of the largest law firms in the country and spent several years as Deputy General Counsel in charge of legal services for Sun’s multi-billion dollar support services division. In these roles, Bill has been in the same position as many of our core customers and he has a personal understanding of the challenges they face and what it takes for them to be successful.”
“Catalyst’s leading product offerings, blue-chip client base and strong growth potential have me very excited,” stated Mooz. “It is rare that you find the combination of technical, legal and business expertise that Catalyst has assembled and I’m confident that we are going to make a real impact on the way in which legal, financial and other professionals store and share electronic data.”
Mooz’s positions at Sun include Senior Director, Utility Computing; Senior Director, Strategy & Business Development; and Deputy General Counsel. Prior to joining Sun, he was a Partner at Holland & Hart, LLP and a Judicial Clerk on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. He received his JD with honors from the University of Colorado and his BA from Colorado College.
Catalyst provides secure digital repositories to help professional teams manage large volumes of electronic documents and work together on complex legal, financial and business matters. Since 1998, clients have used Catalyst’s online systems to review and produce discovery documents, to connect local counsel on cases and claims, for compliance and to coordinate mergers, acquisitions and other financial transactions.
Catalyst’s customers include many of the largest corporations, insurers, government agencies and law firms in the world. Catalyst is privately held. For more information about Catalyst and its repository applications, visit: http://www.catalystsecure.com.
