He retired in June of 2016 as CISO and VP of Technology after 11+ years, 10 acquisitions and 2 successful recapitalizations, most recently by The Carlyle Group and Revolution Growth Capital. Mr. Wolfinger supported the growth of the organization; from its first forensic lab in a spare bedroom in his home in Philadelphia, to becoming a global force in the eDiscovery marketplace with sales over $100MM annually, 300+ employees, and data centers across the US and in Europe.
He coordinated the corporate IT architecture that supports all services, created their security infrastructure and obtained ISO27001:2013 certification for LDiscovery, and was the leader of the Software Development Division.
