CHICAGO, Sept. 14, 2020 — Reveal, a global eDiscovery technology company, today announced that George Socha, co-founder of EDRM, has joined Reveal as Senior Vice President of Brand Awareness. With his unrivaled expertise, Socha will help guide development of the product roadmap and will consult with Reveal customers on effective deployment of legal technology.

I am thrilled to play a role in the industry adoption of AI-powered technology and communicate the value Reveal’s eDiscovery platform brings to legal, risk and compliance professionals worldwide.”
In 2005, Socha co-founded the Electronic eDiscovery Reference Model (EDRM), whose frameworks and content have empowered a generation of professionals.
