Litera hires former Marketo and Oracle executive Manoj Goyal as CTO

Litera will today (31 July) announce that Manoj Goyal will join the company as chief technology officer, effective immediately. Goyal brings more than 30 years of enterprise SaaS and cloud services experience to the position, having previously served as chief product officer and chief technology officer at Marketo, group vice president at Oracle, and executive director at Hewlett Packard. 

Avaneesh Marwaha, Litera CEO said,“Our trajectory as a company, and our increased focus on providing firms with workspaces where their teams can work, make it imperative that we secure the very best talent available. In some cases, that means looking outside the industry. Bringing in Manoj is a significant statement of intent. His track record delivering enterprise-level solutions for some of the world’s largest tech companies fits perfectly with our commitment to owning the space.”

As CTO, Goyal will be responsible for the direction of the company’s engineering and development teams, as well as the integration of newly procured solutions through the recent acquisitions of Bestpractix and Best Authority.

Goyal said: “I am excited about the innovation engine at Litera which is poised to improve the experience of lawyers and legal professionals around the world. I look forward to building on Litera’s reputation as a trusted partner by bringing our customers technology that anticipates their needs and helps them get their work done efficiently and accurately.”
