Veteran Technology and E-Discovery Entrepreneur Matthew Work Joins Catalyst Board

Innovator Helped Drive Success at Amazon.com, Alexa and Interwoven

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 02/06/13 -- Catalyst Repository Systems, Inc., a pioneer in cloud-based document repositories for e-discovery and other complex legal matters, today announced that Matthew Work, a veteran technology and e-discovery entrepreneur and strategist, has joined its board of directors.

Mr. Work, who describes himself as "passionate about technology, entrepreneurship, people and systems," has focused much of his career on how those elements can come together to enhance workflow and productivity. He sees Catalyst as the perfect fit for those passions, in part because he believes the Catalyst platform is superior in its ability to flexibly manage the e-discovery workflow.

Since graduating from Columbia Business School in 1995, Mr. Work has been pivotal to the success of multiple technology and e-discovery companies, both as a founder and chief strategist, including Alexa, Amazon.com and Compete. In 2002, he founded Discovery Mining, Inc., one of the first cloud-based e-discovery platforms. Cutting-edge for its time, the platform included a "more like this" feature to refine searches and sophisticated multi-language capabilities. After selling Discovery Mining to Interwoven in 2008, Mr. Work joined that company as Vice President of e-Discovery Strategy, where he remained until Autonomy acquired Interwoven in 2009.

After leaving Interwoven, Mr. Work founded Cohuman, Inc., where he applied his workflow expertise to develop an innovative, SaaS-based workflow and productivity tool that integrated task management with social networking. In 2011, Mr. Work sold Cohuman to Mindjet, a developer of mind-mapping software.

Mr. Work started his career as director of strategy at a small New York City startup EarthWeb. With his help, the company raised $19 million in investment capital, grew from eight to 300 employees in three years, and become a publicly traded company listed on NASDAQ.

From there, Mr. Work joined Alexa Internet as a vice president, where he helped the company refine its business strategy and revenue model. When Amazon.com bought Alexa for $250 million in 1999, Mr. Work joined Amazon as Vice President of Alexa Research, where he worked closely with Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos in developing tools for tracking and projecting Internet traffic. In 2001, Mr. Work left Amazon.com to become chief strategy officer at Compete, Inc.

In his off-time, Mr. Work enjoys repairing and maintaining motorcycles. He hosts Piston & Chain, www.pistonandchain.com, a club and blog that grew out of the weekly motorcycle maintenance gatherings he hosted in his San Francisco home garage.

"We are honored to have Matt Work join our board of directors," said John Tredennick, Catalyst's CEO and chairman of the board of directors. "His entrepreneurial track record, strategic vision and industry expertise will prove invaluable as we build on the success of our recent launch of Catalyst Insight and continue to introduce innovative new products, such as Catalyst Predict."

The third member of the Catalyst board is Eric Byunn, a partner with FTV Capital in San Francisco.

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats.

Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.
