Mary Mack Joins ZyLab

MMary Mackary Mack, considered by many to be the "face" of Fios, has defected to join ZyLab, as its "enterprise technology counsel," and becomes part of its leadership team charged with developing their North America business. She will work from the company's California  offices, and start her new post on  November 7,  after more than a decade with the Portland, Ore.-based e-discovery provider as its corporate technology counsel. In addition to working with Fios' clients, she wrote the influential blog, Sound Evidence, and was a frequent speaker on the legal technology circuit. 

Mack is a graduate of Northwestern University School of Law and a member of the Illinois bar. She is co-editor of the Thomson Reuters West treatise, eDiscovery for Corporate Counsel,  and serves on the board of governors of the Organization of Legal Professionals and the Advisory Council of the National Federation of Paralegal Associations.

At the new gig, she will collaborate directly with legal counsel and IT teams from ZyLab’s corporate, government, and law firm customers. She will also "continue to share her perspectives and experience through speaking engagements and blog contributions,"  reports Johannes Scholtes, chair and chief strategy officer.

Mack told LTN that as much as enjoyed her job, she was getting a bit "restless," and wanted to devote more time to pro bono activities. "When I saw your post about ZyLab being part of the team that won the award for its work convicting war criminals, my radar went up." Mack says she'll miss her colleagues, "but, after 10 years working for the same company (that is 70 years in e-discovery time), it is time for a change."

Fios'  CEO John Hesse bid his colleague a fond farewell: “Today we don’t say good-bye, but we do wish our friend Mary Mack only the best as she explores new challenges in life. For 10 years, she has been a key contributor to our company’s development and to the electronic discovery industry at large. When e-discovery was the ‘wild, wild west’, there was Mary, advocating for smart and consistent practices that leveraged the best technical innovations of the time."
