Breaking: Matt Crocker to take over as CEO of Phoenix as Jason Petrucci exits legal

Information management and legal IT specialist Phoenix Business Solutions will shortly announce that global sales director Mathew Crocker has been appointed as CEO following the board’s acceptance of Jason Petrucci’s resignation.
Crocker co-founded Phoenix in 2003 and has been responsible for coordinating sales strategy across the company’s territories of EMEA, AsiaPac and the Americas where he has overseen a period of strong growth and rapid expansion in all regions.

Phoenix’ board of directors said in a statement to be released shortly that it “would like to thank Petrucci for his contribution at Phoenix and wish him every success in the future.”
Crocker commented, “I’m delighted to be taking on the role of CEO, and from day one my focus will be firmly on ensuring we continue to provide an unparalleled service to support our clients within this constantly evolving information management landscape. Today’s marketplace is a dynamic one, where governance and compliance can provide a strategic framework for data and information management. Our clients look to experienced partners like Phoenix to help navigate the new complexities of managing, applying and securing their highly sensitive data”.
