Onit Adds Enterprise Legal Management Industry Leader to Executive Management Team

HOUSTON, Aug. 10, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Onit, Inc., a leading provider of Enterprise Legal Management solutions, today announced that it hired Matt DenOuden as vice president of sales.

With nearly 30 years of industry experience, Matt has been on the front lines of the Enterprise Legal Management (ELM) revolution. His expertise in legal operations technology and strategy will play a key role in Onit’s future to help modernize corporate legal departments use of technology and automate their processes.

“Matt has worked with more than 50% of the Fortune 500 law departments in the last decade alone and brings great insight to what makes technology successful in carrying out company strategy,” said Eric M. Elfman, CEO, and founder of Onit. “We are happy to have Matt on board with a proven record of success in the e-billing and matter management space and I am confident that we will achieve accelerated growth under his leadership.”

From 1990 to 2002, Matt spent a dozen years practicing law as a partner in a boutique defense firm in Hartford, Connecticut. While there, he started and grew an early e-discovery technology practice. In 2002, he left private practice to join a young e-billing company, TyMetrix. As vice president of sales for TyMetrix for 14 years, he helped take the company from four clients and $2M in revenue to 250 clients and $60M in revenue.

Matt has spent his working life in the field with clients and industry leaders and has a passion for developing solutions to manage the business of law. He spent the last year as a managing director at Huron Consulting (now Consilio) where he worked closely with legal operations leaders around the country as they devised operational strategies and technology road maps for their law departments.

“I am excited and proud to join the management team at Onit, where I will lead the sales effort at the fastest growing ELM company in the market,” commented Matt DenOuden, vice president of sales, Onit. “In a few short years, Onit has gathered an amazing list of thought-leading clients. For these clients, Onit often not only handles all the workflows and needs of the law department, but is flexible enough so as to include dozens of Apps for adjacent workflows like contract management, sales, compliance, and legal holds (to name just a few...). I believe strongly in the vision of Onit which is to meet the knowledge worker at the point of process and decision making with an intuitive and powerful tool providing the data to make the smart decision.”

Matt has a bachelor's degree in English from the University of Hartford and a J.D. from The University of Connecticut School of Law.
