In this role, Pepiton will spearhead Mimecast’s Information Governance programs as well as provide legal counsel for the company’s North American operations.
Pepiton’s work in the E-Discovery field has made him an industry thought leader. He is an active member of The Sedona Conference®, a think tank dedicated to education and dialogue surrounding E-Discovery and Information Governance issues. He is also a long-time member of the Electronic Discovery Reference Model, a project aimed at generating guidance through the maze of managing an electronic discovery project. He is a frequent speaker and author on Information Governance and, specifically, its beneficial effects on E-Discovery.
“The legal community has proven that it understands the strategic advantages of managing their email infrastructure within the cloud,” said Mimecast Senior Vice President and North American General Manager, Mary Kay Roberto. “We look forward to leveraging Pete’s experience and insights into this community’s email management pain points to assist Mimecast in continuing to grow within this dynamic market.”

“We’ve all been saying that IT and Legal need to work more closely together, and we’ve been saying it for years,” commented Pepiton. “However, the law has not made great strides in describing how companies ought to be managing their information on a proactive basis and the technology landscape is only growing more complex, including the current buzz about moving to the cloud. My job will be, in part, to help organizations find and implement Best Practices including improving their email management practices through Mimecast’s innovative Unified Email Management platform.”
