New York, NY - The Expert Institute, the leading online platform connecting law firms with expert witnesses, announced the appointment of Bill Sherman as President. Mr. Sherman will lead the company’s growth initiatives across product development, operations, and sales.
"Bill has incredible experience building teams and leading product development at some of the most successful and innovative global information service companies,” said Michael Talve, CEO and Managing Director of the Expert Institute. “We are thrilled to bring him on board to help us accelerate our growth and bring the best services to our clients and the individuals they represent."
As a seasoned financial technology executive with over 25 years of experience, Mr. Sherman has helped to build, grow, and manage several technology and data-driven companies. Mr. Sherman joined Ipreo, a global provider of financial services, technology, data, and analytics as part of its executive management team at its formation in 2006. He served as one of the lead executives who helped scale the company until its eventual acquisition by IHS Markit for $1.85 billion in August of 2018. At the time of the purchase, Mr. Sherman was the Executive Vice President and Head of the Global Markets Group at Ipreo, a division that provided critical software, content, and analytics to help clients successfully manage and execute deals across multiple asset classes, and all major financial markets throughout the world. Following the acquisition, Mr. Sherman continued to serve as the Head of the Global Markets Group at IHS-Markit until his departure earlier this year.
Prior to Ipreo / IHS Markit, Mr. Sherman was a Partner at The Carson Group, where he and the executive management team led the growth of the business through the 1990s, and which culminated in an eventual sale of the business to Thomson Financial in 2000. Following the purchase, Mr. Sherman served as the Executive Vice President of Data Strategy & Analytics at Thomson Financial’s Corporate Group.
“The team at the Expert Institute is incredibly impressive and has created a differentiated content-driven technology platform with a robust network of expert witnesses that has quickly become the market leader,” said Bill Sherman, President of the Expert Institute. “I am excited to join the company and help it continue to provide a best in class critical service in an under-serviced segment of the legal market. There is a tremendous amount of opportunity to continue to grow by focusing on bringing additional value to clients through best in class service combined with intelligent data and technology enabled solutions.”
Mr. Sherman is poised to broaden the company’s areas of practice and pursue business development opportunities through product expansion.
