Jack Halprin, currently lists his employer as Autonomy where he was the Vice President, eDiscovery and Compliance.

But we’ve heard from a source in the know that he’s made a move to Google and will be in charge of Google’s management of electronically stored information (ESI) for both legal and information governance purposes in their Apps/Postini wing.  His background includes “managing social media for legal and governance purposes, defensible processes for managing discovery, proportionality, and the reduction of eDiscovery costs” –which will certainly help Google prepare companies who are moving infrastructure into Google’s Cloud offerings.

This follows Google’s Enterprise’s pickup of Matthew Eichner, who now manages Global Enterprise Search, earlier this year.

Halprin provides the following background in his Linked in Profile:

As an attorney and former private-practice litigator, I focus on the challenges organizations have with managing electronically stored information (ESI) for both legal and information governance purposes. With more than 6 years experience in the eDiscovery space, my interests include managing social media for legal and governance purposes, defensible processes for managing discovery, proportionality, and the reduction of eDiscovery costs. I frequently speak and write on social media discovery and governance, best practices for legal hold and the preservation obligation, defensibility of search technology, return on investment, and the movement of enterprise data to the cloud.

I am a strategic and visionary thinker with a diverse range of experiences that enable me to communicate effectively across all levels of an organization, understand and solve complex issues, manage P&L and budget, and motivate teams to exceed their goals. I have experience creating a startup division that was profitable in less than three years and helping established businesses increase market share, revenue, profitability, and brand awareness.

I currently serve as a subject matter expert in the eDiscovery and compliance space and am active in industry organizations including The Sedona Conference, EDRM, and the ACC. My prior experience includes litigation, senior product manager/marketing manager in the enterprise software sector, and discovery consultant for corporate counsel.
