FileTrail just promoted Harold Westervelt from unofficial consultant to CEO. Westervelt comes to the information governance and records management software provider with a deep bench of leadership experience, including as general manager and CEO at software vendor Sapiens Decision and president at financial consultant INVeSHARE Inc.

Westervelt said he’s known FileTrail co-founder and president Darrell Mervau—who will continue with the company in a strategic role—for years, and he has even done some unofficial consulting for the company. Now, Westervelt will look to position the software vendor to help firms deal with the complications that the advent of remote working has brought to managing employee data.
