Foundation Software Group Names Barry Solomon President
Law firm veteran leaving Sidley CMO role to lead fast growing software company
February 20, 2018 – Foundation Software Group, a developer of next-generation enterprise software solutions for law firms, announced today that Barry Solomon has been named President, effective immediately. Solomon takes over as President from Nate Fineberg, co-founder of Foundation Software Group. Fineberg will remain Chief Executive Officer of the company.
Solomon joins Foundation Software Group from Sidley Austin LLP where he started his career as a lawyer and, most recently, was Chief Marketing Officer (CMO). Before his role as CMO at Sidley, Solomon served as Executive Vice President of LexisNexis InterAction and CMO of Microsystems.
“Barry’s experience in software solutions for large law firms combined with a deep understanding of the needs of lawyers makes him a perfect fit for this role,” said Fineberg. “We see great growth for the Foundation platform. Barry’s dynamic leadership will be a game changer for the future of our organization.”
Solomon will be responsible for growing the company’s customer base, which currently consists of 20 of the world’s leading law firms.
“Barry is joining Foundation Software Group at a critical time as we’re seeing law firms increasingly investing in experience management as a response to the buying behavior of sophisticated clients,” said Kent Zimmermann, principal with the law firm consultancy Zeughauser Group. “Law firm clients are placing a higher value on outside lawyers who have deep industry and relevant substantive experience. Experience management is a key technology that helps law firms improve knowledge management and drives enhanced law firm financial performance, competitiveness, and ability to attract and retain sought-after clients.”
