RESTON, Va., July 31, 2018 — Active Navigation Inc., the leader in file analysis software for the information governance, risk and compliance (GRC) market, today announced the appointment of Dean Gonsowski as Chief Revenue Officer.

Gonsowski joins the Active Navigation executive team from his position as Vice President of Strategy and Industry Marketing at eDiscovery software stalwart Relativity, where he built out the go-to-market efforts for their enterprise sector. As Active Navigation’s Chief Revenue Officer, Gonsowski will lead the sales, marketing and customer success initiatives as the company aims to bolster its near triple digit growth over recent years.

“We are delighted to have Dean join the team – his passion, skill and experience will be a huge asset as we continue to build the business to keep up with our fast growth, ambitious product plans and global expansion,” said Peter Baumann, CEO of Active Navigation. “Dean joins us as the GRC space accelerates and his extensive industry expertise will ensure Active Navigation capitalizes on this emerging category.”

“Active Navigation has a rare set of advantages – an exciting technology that has forged its way as an innovator in file analytics, marquee customers and an exceptionally talented team,” said Gonsowski.  “I look forward to helping the company take the next leap forward as GRC truly becomes a mission critical business capability, due to the GDPR, New York cyber regulations and disclosure requirements following persistent data security breaches.”
