Catalyst has named Daniel Au Yeung, a veteran business leader with more than 20 years in the e-discovery and litigation support industry, to be head of product management, where he will oversee the planning, direction, definition, and communication of all software products.
“Daniel is a seasoned e-discovery veteran who has helped law firms, Fortune 100 and global companies solve a variety of e-discovery problems through the years,” said Catalyst President John Barr. “He has an established track record of helping to build successful companies and of enhancing customer service and satisfaction—even going so far as to build custom solutions when there were no viable alternatives readily available in the market.”
Au Yeung has worked with Catalyst as a consultant since 2012, most recently helping to spearhead development of Insight Enterprise, Catalyst’s newly launched platform specifically designed for corporate general counsel to centralize, simplify and reduce the cost of e-discovery across all their legal matters and teams.
“Catalyst is a true technology leader in e-discovery and I am thrilled to be part of the team,” said Au Yeung. “I am especially happy to have played a role in building Insight Enterprise and I look forward to continuing to lead product planning and management.”
Prior to coming to Catalyst, Au Yeung was chief technology officer and partner at the litigation support services company Datum Legal, where he built his division entirely from scratch to increase annualized revenue from zero to a multi-million dollar concern. During his time at Datum Legal, Au Yeung was also responsible for building the imaging, printing, electronic discovery, ASP hosting and certified training business service lines as well as the IT infrastructure to support it all.
Later, after global legal process outsourcing provider Integreon acquired Datum Legal, Au Yeung became Integreon’s chief technology officer for discovery solutions. In that role, Au Yeung oversaw electronic discovery operations, U.S. IT and global product development. He also led research and development of new technologies, performed due diligence on possible target companies, and integrated the operations of acquired companies.
Earlier in his career, Au Yeung was part of the original team that established and grew Concordance Technologies prior to its sale in 1996 to IKON Office Solutions.
“Daniel’s experience with many of the industry’s software is second to none,” said Chris Egan, Au Yeung’s former partner at Datum Legal and SVP at Integreon. “He’s exceptional at understanding the client’s needs and designing the right solution.”
