Kira Inc Advisor Is Former PLC CEO Jeroen Plink

Kira Inc (formerly DiligenceEngine), the provider of software that makes contract review and analysis faster and more accurate, announced in January the addition of Jeroen Plink to its leadership team. Plink, the former CEO of Practical Law Company’s US operations, will join DiligenceEngine as an advisor and board member, helping guide the company’s expansion amidst rising demand for its platform. Plink led PLC’s US business from its launch in 2008 through to its sale to Thomson Reuters in 2013, at which time it had over 200 employees and nearly 1000 customers.

“DiligenceEngine has been tested and proven on large real-world transactions,” said Plink. “It is a truly revolutionary platform that will permanently change the way corporations and law firms conduct contract reviews. I have been an admirer for some time, and am thrilled to be involved.”

Plink joins alongside a rapid expansion of the DiligenceEngine team, which also now includes Steve Obenski as Chief Marketing Officer. Prior to joining DiligenceEngine, Obenski was general manager for Thomson Reuters’ business law solutions division.

Clients used DiligenceEngine’s platform on corporate transactions totaling over $70 billion in the past year. “We are adding team members to help keep up with demand,” said Noah Waisberg, CEO. “Last year, the market woke up to the need for a better way to review contracts. We are excited for 2015, especially because we are now supported by such strong new team members.”
