Software provider Dotmatics has invested in its organisation capabilities with the addition of a new Chief Legal Officer and Chief People Officer.
The company has appointed Larry Samuelson as Chief Legal Officer and Neil Frye as Chief People Officer in a move Dotmatics says extends the global reach of its research and data solutions.
Samuelson previously worked for event technology SaaS company Cvent where he served as Senior Vice President, General Counsel, and Corporate Secretary. There, he helped the company go public twice and helped it grow its revenue from $100 million to over $550 million.
Frye was previously the Chief People Officer for healthtech start-up Alto Pharmacy. During his tenure, Alto grew from 250 to more than 1500 employees. Prior to Alto, Frye spent more than four years leading global recruiting and HR operations/technology at Dropbox where he helped the company go through its IPO, exceed $1 billion in annual recurring revenue, and grow from 700 to 3,000+ employees.
“We are adding Larry and Neil at a significant time in our company’s growth,” said Thomas Swalla, CEO of Dotmatics. “Their extensive experience in relevant industries make them the right fit and both will be pivotal as we move forward our plans aggressively growing and scaling the business.”
“Larry and Neil have an incredibly successful track record building and supporting high-growth software companies,” said Mike McKee, president of Dotmatics. “But adding these two leaders will also be beneficial to our employees and customers as our team helps scientists use technologies and data to discover and innovate.”
“I was immediately drawn to Dotmatics’ mission to partner with its clients to change the world for the better,” said Samuelson. “We’re providing scientists software they love and a data management platform that together helps them find solutions to what ails our world – from Covid to cancer to climate issues.”
“I searched for a company, a product, and a leadership team that aligned to my values, and that is improving the human experience. That brought me to Dotmatics,” said Frye. “What makes it better is the opportunity I have to interact with such a passionate group of employees who share this perspective. I look forward to helping to shape our culture, design great employee/candidate experiences and achieve our goals through people programmes.”
