Robert Gogel, CEO of Integreon since 2011, will transition his role to Rowe and will assume the role of non-Executive Chairman of the Board.
“Bob Rowe stands apart as a leader with an extraordinary ability to connect vision, people and ideas to drive strategy and execution. We look forward to seeing Integreon enter its next phase of growth under Bob Rowe’s leadership, and would like to thank Bob Gogel for his outstanding leadership and contribution to Integreon over the past 6 years,” said Amit Gupta, Board Director and Founding Partner at NewQuest Capital Partners, which acquired Integreon in September 2016.
Rowe has more than 25 years of experience in the legal industry, specializing in delivery of comprehensive e-discovery solutions to law firms and corporations. He most recently served as the practice leader of Huron Legal where he oversaw Huron’s advisory and business services units, including its e-discovery business which provided services to Fortune 500 companies and law firms. Prior to Huron, Rowe founded and served as CEO of Nextra Litigation Solutions, a managed document review services company, which Huron acquired in 2006. He was also recognized in the inaugural list of Legal Business Trailblazers and Pioneers by The National Law Journal. During his career, Rowe also spent ten years practicing antitrust law in Washington, D.C. with several Am Law 100 firms and clerked for the Honorable Cornelia G. Kennedy of the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. He received his J.D. from Vanderbilt University School of Law.
Gogel commented, “This is the perfect time for Bob Rowe to become Integreon’s next Chief Executive Officer. The Board has selected a very strong leader in Bob. As today’s pace of change accelerates, our next CEO needs to thrive in a highly dynamic environment, be capable of driving forward what is working very well for Integreon, and disrupting what needs to change in the market. He is unique in his ability to translate vision and strategy into world-class execution, bringing together teams and ecosystems to deliver results. Rowe’s vision, strategy and execution track record is exactly what Integreon needs as we enter our next chapter, which I am confident will be even more impactful and exciting than our last.”
“I’ve had the opportunity to watch Integreon grow as a leader in its industry and am proud to take on this leadership role,” said Rowe. “Lawyers and their clients continue to seek innovative, efficient solutions to meet their business and legal needs, and Integreon remains at the forefront of meeting those needs. I am excited to become part of this team.”
