kCura Announces Appointment of Jason Ream as Chief Financial Officer

Jason Ream Adds 20 Years of Experience in Finance and Technology to kCura's Operational Strategy, With the Goal of Helping to Scale the e-Discovery Software Company to Solve More Complex Data Challenges for the Legal Community

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - April 18, 2016) - kCura, developers of the e-discovery software Relativity, today announced the appointment of Jason Ream as chief financial officer. Jason will oversee core internal operations and financial strategies, and will report to kCura's founder and CEO, Andrew Sieja.

Jason has 20 years of experience in software and investment banking for technology. During his time at SolarWinds -- where he was CFO -- Jason helped guide the company through a successful IPO, was instrumental in setting the company's strategy, and helped lead the effort to take SolarWinds private again in a $4.5 billion sale. Prior to joining SolarWinds, Jason worked with multiple software companies to drive their growth and innovation as an investment banker with J.P. Morgan. He also held various roles at UBS, Piper Jaffray, and Credit Suisse First Boston.

kCura's Keith Lieberman will transition from CFO to chief accounting officer, working closely with Jason on internal operations.

"Our focus has always been to provide our customers with great software and an awesome experience working with us," said Andrew Sieja, founder and CEO of kCura. "To keep innovating our product and delivering the experience we want to provide our customers, we need to continue growing the organization in a smart way. Jason's experience building world-class organizations at scale in the tech world will help equip us to provide the same level of support our customers have with us today."

Relativity, software for managing and analyzing large volumes of electronic data during litigation and investigations, is used by more than 10,000 organizations in more than 40 countries. In early 2015, kCura accepted a $125 million minority investment from Iconiq Capital to raise their level and pace of innovation within the e-discovery software market, which IDC has estimated to be a $2 billion market. In March 2016, kCura acquired Content Analyst Company -- a leading text analytics firm -- to continue accelerating the development of their analytics solution for the e-discovery industry.

"When deciding to join the kCura team, I was impressed by the team's strong sense of shared core values and desire to build great technology -- but particularly their dedication to their customers," said Jason Ream, newly appointed CFO of kCura. "Customers today have a lot of choices, and we want to continue to focus on providing the best product and customer experience we can. e-Discovery is a fast-growing industry, and I'm excited to become a part of it, and to join a company as dynamic and passionate as kCura."
