An interview with Tod Ewasko, Director of Product Management at AccessData.
CCBJ: Explain your background and your role at AccessData.
Tod Ewasko: Currently, I am the director of product management and development. I have spent the last 11 years of my career in the e-discovery industry, starting out with a focus on legal processing solutions, then moving into forensics, with a focus on the workflow and tools for data collection.
Throughout those 11 years, I have spent a significant amount of time interfacing with corporate entities to understand their current workflow and challenges. Having this dialogue with our customers and future clients helps me better understand their problems and pain points, so we can build out our tools to help address those issues.
I wanted a certification that separates me from my peers. Upon discovering CEDS, I was convinced this was exactly the type of distinction I had been seeking. Since achieving CEDS certification, I’ve noticed immediate recognition from my organization, colleagues, and current and prospective clients.They acknowledge they are more comfortable working with a person who has taken time to seek such certification. CEDS has certainly been worth the small investment and should continue to beget returns for years and years to come.
Andrew Bayer, CEDS
I get bombarded with all kinds of e-discovery stuff – news, blogs and whatnot. Let me tell you, you guys send the absolute best! I send it to all my partners and sales folks. I said, who are these guys? I have to get to know them better!
Kevin Glass, CEO
As a trial lawyer, day-to-day information processing is daunting for my client service. I’ve come to rely on ACEDS to keep me on the ‘edge’ of the curve on e-discovery. It’s a source I ‘ping’ ASAP.
