Co-founder and CEO of Eigen Technologies Dr. Lewis Z. Liu said:
“I am absolutely delighted to welcome Omar to Eigen. He brings with him over 20 years of top-tier sales experience in enterprise software at great companies such as HyperScience and Betterworks. Appointing him to lead our Sales & Account Management team shows our ambition for growth with the most demanding clients in financial services, law, and professional services around the world.

Omar Divina, VP Sales & Account Management, said:
“As a firm believer in the power of technology to unlock the value of qualitative data for organizations, I was immediately impressed by Eigen’s unique approach in building an enterprise-grade solution that is not only use-case and language agnostic, but one that also requires only minimal training in order to classify and extract data from the most complex documents. I couldn’t be more excited to be working with such a great company and such an immensely talented group of individuals. Lewis is an inspiring leader who has built a remarkable organization, and I am honored to be working with him and the team to bring the value of Eigen to companies all over the world.”
