Manchester-based cloud data company Matillion has appointed Markus Bauman as General Counsel and Chief Legal Officer to support its future growth structure.
Bauman, a corporate attorney with experience at international firms and investment banks including Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan, was most recently Partner and Head of European Strategic Relations at global law firm Goodwin.
In his new role at Matillion, he will support the firm’s legal and compliance function which will be “instrumental” in supporting its future growth structure.
Bauman joins the company as it moves into a new phase of growth, after Matillion reached business unicorn status last year following its most recent Series E funding.
Matillion CEO Matthew Scullion said: “We’re delighted to welcome someone with Markus’ rich experience to the role, and we’re excited for him to take a central role in stewarding our continued growth in the years ahead.
“Serving our enterprise customers and partner ecosystem is always the top priority for Matillion. Bringing Markus onboard as our general counsel and chief legal officer allows us to better serve Matillion users and helps us continue the integrity and responsibility in which we conduct our business.”
Markus Bauman added: “I’m honoured to be joining this global team as the company strives to deliver on its vision for unified data integration, and make the world’s data useful.”
