|By Business Wire

Cogint, Inc. (NASDAQ: COGT), a data and analytics company, today
announced that the Company has appointed Greg Johnson, an executive with
over 25 years of operational experience in the software, data and
analytics industries, as Chief Revenue Officer (CRO), a newly-created
position at the rapidly-growing company. As CRO, Johnson will have
direct responsibility for all revenue-generating and customer-facing
teams of IDI, cogint’s risk management division.
Johnson’s professional experience includes senior management positions
at Reed Elsevier’s LexisNexis, a leading information solutions provider,
among other software and data analytics companies. Johnson was
instrumental in building out successful sales organizations across the
enterprise at LexisNexis Risk and Business Analytics (LNRBA). Most
recently, he served as Vice President, Consulting and Client Experience,
where he led a large organization across vertical markets, including
Insurance, Government, Healthcare, and Commercial. While at LNRBA,
Johnson integrated all sales functions following LexisNexis’ $4.2
billion dollar acquisition of ChoicePoint. Immediately prior to joining
cogint, Johnson served as Chief Operating Officer of Social Solutions, a
SaaS company owned by Vista Equity Partners and serving the nonprofit
and public sector.
Derek Dubner, cogint’s CEO stated, "The addition of Greg to the team
could not have come at a more opportune time. The rapid evolution of our
primary investigative solution, idiCORE, combined with new product
releases, is providing significant tailwinds in market and customer
penetration. We believe Greg’s knowledge of this industry and
demonstrable success building out sales operations, including strategic
and channel partnerships, will drive increasing and sustained revenue
growth within multiple verticals in our risk management business.”
“I am thrilled to join the cogint team, and to continue to build and
lead an extraordinary sales organization in support of the Company and
its incredible technology,” commented Johnson. “I have spent many years
in the software and analytics space and I look forward to working with
this proven team.”
At cogint, we believe that time is your most valuable asset. Through
powerful analytics, we transform data into intelligence, in a fast and
efficient manner, so that our clients can spend their time on what
matters most – running their organizations with confidence. Through
leading-edge, proprietary technology and a massive data repository, our
data and analytical solutions harness the power of data fusion,
uncovering the relevance of disparate data points and converting them
into comprehensive and insightful views of people, businesses, assets
and their interrelationships. We empower clients across markets and
industries to better execute all aspects of their business, from
managing risk, conducting investigations, identifying fraud and abuse,
and collecting debts, to identifying and acquiring new customers. At
cogint, we are dedicated to making the world a safer place, to reducing
the cost of doing business, and to enhancing the consumer experience.
