“FutureVault is a unique and highly innovative company poised to be a leader in the evolving Digital Vault space, particularly in Personal Life Management and Business Enterprise Management,” commented Shackleton.
“The company’s disruptive end-to-end document management platform is the way of the future, and I couldn’t be more pleased to play a role in this next phase of growth.”
“John is a legendary leader in the technology world, particularly in the document and content management space,” commented FutureVault Co-Chairs, G Scott Paterson and John D. Orr.
“We are delighted that he will join and lead our team at this exciting juncture, where we see our vision of the future — Digital Vaults for Personal Life Management and Business Enterprise Management — becoming ubiquitous for individuals and businesses globally.”
Orr, the company’s CEO from June 2017 until April 2021, will take on the role of Co-Chair of the FutureVault Board of Directors alongside co-founder and Executive Chair, G Scott Paterson.
In addition to leading FutureVault’s day-to-day operations, Shackleton will play a critical role in driving the strategic vision and direction for the company as it turns its focus to the next stage of growth and strategic partnerships.
