As a client, I have experienced first-hand the quality of their work, out-of-the-box thinking, and dedication to exceptional client service. I look forward to working with the outstanding group of consultants at eSentio to drive innovation and add value for my colleagues in the legal market.
This role will allow me to engage with CIOs and other leaders as they face continuing change and challenges in Legal IT. Whether it is building a stronger security posture, implementing information governance policies and systems, or developing new strategies for the future, I very much want to make those engagements successful and sustaining.”
Marty was honored by the American Lawyer Media as IT Director of the Year in 2011. In 2014, he was also honored by the Nashville Business Journal as CIO of the Year for his work in launching his firm’s new Operations Center.
