Sponsored by Businesswire

the pioneer of the enterprise legal services model that is driving
transformation throughout the entire legal ecosystem, today announced
the appointment of Rodney Rogers as Chairman of its Board of Directors.
With more than 30 years in the technology services industry, Mr. Rogers
is recognized as a successful serial entrepreneur and expert
technologist, known for his leadership contributions in the realization
of two back-to-back “unicorns”—start-ups that achieve billion-dollar

Mr. Rogers most recently led Virtustream, the enterprise-class cloud
company trusted by organizations worldwide to run their mission-critical
applications. He co-founded Virtustream in 2009 and was Chairman and CEO
prior to its acquisition by EMC Corporation in 2015 for $1.2 billion.
Virtustream’s acquisition marked one of the largest private technology
start-up exits globally in 2015 and, in that acquisition year,
Virtustream and Mr. Rogers ranked third on Forbes’ list of “Best
Cloud Computing Companies and Best CEOs To Work For.” In 2016, Dell
Technologies acquired EMC for $60 billion in the largest acquisition in
the technology industry’s history. Within Dell Technologies, Mr. Rogers
served as president of the Virtustream business and a member of both the
Dell EMC Infrastructure Solutions Group and Dell Services & Digital
executive leadership teams. Throughout his career, Mr. Rogers has led
the development of and served on the boards of directors of a variety of
successful growth companies, forging deep ties with top-quartile venture
capital firms and industry-based investors, such as Intel and SAP.

“Rodney is an inspirational businessman who disrupts the status quo by
employing leading-edge technologies with every company he touches,” said
UnitedLex CEO Dan Reed. “His enhanced role on our Board of Directors, on
which he has served since our formation in 2006, will undoubtedly help
us expand our Enterprise Legal Services model, which demands a unique
combination of consulting, technology, and process to maximize value
capture—performance gains, risk reduction, and cost savings—for our
clients around the world.”

Following the recent investment
in UnitedLex
by CVC Capital Partners, one of the largest
transactions to date with any legal services provider, UnitedLex has
access to significant capital that bolsters the company’s investment in
technology. That deal came on the heels of UnitedLex closing deals worth
$1.5 billion in total contract value over the past 18 months.

“UnitedLex continues to innovate the market with game-changing
engagements with the world’s leading companies,” Rogers said. “I am
honored to take on the role of Chairman of the Board and to work closely
with Dan Reed and the talented UnitedLex leadership team, as well as the
investors at CVC, as they radically transform the legal industry through
leading-edge technology, unique process know-how, disruptive service
delivery models, scalable human capital, and financial strength.”
