EK Announces External Advisory Board

EK's External Advisory Board

Enterprise Knowledge (EK) announced the creation of an External Advisory Board (EAB) of globally recognized leaders in the fields of Knowledge Management, Information Management, Content Management, and Data Management. The EAB will have multiple responsibilities with EK, including advising EK’s Leadership Team on the latest trends in the field, collaborating with EK subject matter experts to produce new thought leadership content, and teaming with EK consultants to advise and offer learning opportunities to EK’s clients.

The formal creation of the EAB has been several years in the making, with EK’s Leadership Team vetting the inaugural members to ensure the greatest caliber of expertise, innovation, and collaboration to mirror EK’s own standing and expectations within the industry. EAB membership will work on a rolling basis, allowing EK’s Leadership Team to onboard new members when they see fit, ensuring the company continues to capture the perspectives of the leading voices in the field.

“Having collaborated directly with each member of the EAB, I’m excited to formally welcome them to the Board. This is a group of some of the strongest and most innovative voices in the field, and I welcome their ideas in order to make EK more effective, and to better support our clients at every stage,” shares Zach Wahl, CEO of EK. 

The current members of the EAB are Malcolm Hawker, a former Chief Product Officer and Gartner analyst with over 25 years of experience across the fields of Data Strategy, Master Data Management (MDM), and Data Governance; Mohammed Aaser, Chief Data Officer (CDO) of Domo and former CDO of McKinsey and Company; Polly Alexander, Director of Metadata and Taxonomy for WebMD Ignite, with expertise bridging the fields of Knowledge Management, AI, and Machine Learning; and Jeff Jonas, Founder and CEO of Senzing, acclaimed data scientist, and former IBM Fellow.

EAB members are presently supporting EK’s Semantic Layer webinar series, and several members will be speakers at the Semantic Layer Day event planned for October in Munich, Germany.
