AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- RenewData, a full-service eDiscovery provider that offers the industry’s broadest spectrum of review acceleration solutions, today announced that Tom Shambo has joined the company as senior vice president of sales. In this role, Shambo will draw from almost 20 years of executive sales experience to help drive the company toward even greater growth and profitability. He will participate on the management team and oversee the sales organization and personnel.

Shambo brings to RenewData deep experience in the eDiscovery market, as well as an excellent history of translating client needs into time- and cost-savings solutions. For the past 10 years, he has led account executive teams selling a wide range of eDiscovery offerings to Fortune 1000 corporations and AmLaw 200 law firms. Former customers include 19 of the Financial Times’ top 25 financial institutions, all of the top 10 global banks and 16 of the top 25 U.S. law firms.

Most recently, Shambo was vice president of discovery sales for Autonomy, an HP Company. He previously held executive sales management positions at ZANTAZ and Steelpoint Technologies – giving him experience in the eDiscovery market that dates back to when it was in its infancy. He earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of New York at Oswego in mathematics and education and was an Adjunct Faculty member of Syracuse University in Electrical and Computer Engineering.

Shambo joins RenewData during an exciting time, with recent announcements including the addition of Clearwell eDiscovery software, the launch of its Language-Based Analytics offering and a new patent for its proprietary review acceleration technology.
