We have exciting news to share today. Alfresco CTO and co-founder John Newton has been inducted into the Association for Information and Image Management (AIIM) Company of Fellows. This is a fantastic honor given to individuals “who merit recognition and distinction for their outstanding contributions to the ECM industry.”
While many of you know the history, John Newton is one of the “founding fathers” of the ECM industry. In 1990, he pioneered content management by co-founding Documentum. And then in 2005, John disrupted the ECM industry by founding Alfresco. Alfresco is celebrating its 10-year anniversary this year, and we’re thrilled to be moving into our next decade of industry innovation.
John Mancini, AIIM President was recently quoted saying, “John Newton is the very definition of what it means to be an industry leader. He founded the ECM industry over 25 years ago, and went on to revolutionize the industry in developing a modern approach to ECM with Alfresco. As a current AIIM Board Member and former Chairman, John has demonstrated his constant dedication to both AIIM and the content industry, and becoming an AIIM Fellow is but a partial recognition of his many contributions.”
Congratulations to John on becoming an AIIM Fellow!
