DocuSign CFO Michael Sheridan Joins Seal Software Board of Directors

High-Growth Financial Leadership Extends Board’s Breadth as AI Software Provider Sustains Global Expansion

The Board of Directors of Seal Software, the leading provider of contract discovery, data extraction, and analytics, announced that it has named Michael Sheridan as a new board member. Currently the chief financial officer at DocuSign (NAS: DOCU), Sheridan has worked in financial strategy and operations for over 30 years—the past 20 of which have seen him serve in CFO roles for various high-growth technology and software companies, including Facebook and FireEye. In that time, Mike has overseen five successful IPOs and served as CFO for three of them.

“Seal is fortunate to have Mike’s expertise at building and scaling high-growth tech companies as we move to the next level,” said Seal Software CEO and co-founder, Ulf Zetterberg. “He brings financial leadership and a track record of creating value for stakeholders to his board role, and we couldn’t be more pleased to have him on our team.”

This announcement follows DocuSign’s recent strategic investment of $15 million in Seal Software, which was made just a week after the company launched the DocuSign Agreement Cloud. The investment supports the companies’ work to automate and connect the entire process of how agreements are prepared, signed, enacted, and managed. It also expands the partnership formed between DocuSign and Seal Software in 2018, which saw Seal’s artificial intelligence-based agreement discovery, extraction, and analytics solutions offered as a pre-integrated extension to DocuSign eSignature.

“I have tremendous respect for Seal’s innovative AI technology and what they have achieved so far,” said Sheridan. “I look forward to working with the other board members as the company continues its trajectory.”
