Nuix appoints Paul Slater as Global Head of Investigations

Global technology company Nuix today named Paul Slater as its Global Head of Investigations. In his new role, Slater will work with key stakeholders across Nuix, customers and the broader marketplace to provide strategic direction to Nuix’s digital forensic investigation business line.“Paul has been our go-to resource for investigations expertise since he joined the company and I’m delighted that he has agreed to concentrate on growing our credentials in this area,” said Eddie Sheehy, CEO of Nuix. “Paul’s expertise will help us increase our capacity to deal with petabyte-scale investigations driven by intelligence-style workflows.”

Slater will lead many of Nuix’s activities around law enforcement and policing, government, and enterprise investigations. He will further contribute to the development of Nuix Investigation & Response and its integration with Elasticsearch as a database back end.

Slater previously was Executive Director of EMEA and Director of Forensic Solutions at Nuix. Before joining the company in 2013, Slater worked for more than 20 years as a police officer and consultant in investigations, digital forensics and eDiscovery, including as interim head of the digital forensics unit in the UK Serious Fraud Office.

“Investigations have changed drastically over the past few years with the explosion in volume and variety of evidence,” said Slater. “Investigators need new and deeper expertise to manage their workloads, reduce case backlogs and answer questions of digital evidence for more stakeholders than ever before. I look forward to continue working with Nuix to make a lasting impact on the way organisations approach investigations today, tomorrow and in years to come.”
