Christopher LaCour is the founder of ING3NIOUS and Director of Business Development at the EDRM.​

Chris’ background is in sales of eDiscovery​ and document review services.​ With scarcely 3 years’ experience in this field, he had the foresight and acuity to perceive the need for improved forums to discuss the future of electronic discovery, especially on the West Coast. He then acted on his vision by creating an event unique and unprecedented in the eDiscovery industry, the Carmel Valley eDiscovery Retreat.

Chris’ goal was to bring together the best minds in eDiscovery in a relaxed and informal forum, set against the gorgeous backdrop of California’s Carmel Valley. His vision became real in July 2011, with the first-ever Carmel Valley eDiscovery Retreat, which will be long remembered by eDiscovery professionals as an event that was ground-breaking and innovative, as well as casual, friendly, and intimate.

Building on the success of the Retreats and ensuring that his events remain innovative and unique, Chris decided to create INGENIOUS. Expanding on the topics explored at the Retreats, Chris designed INGENIOUS to meet the needs of business professionals faced with real business challenges looking for customized business solutions. In addition to his current job duties at INGENIOUS, Chris recently assumed the role of Director of Business Development at the EDRM to support the long-term strategic goals of the organization, by building relationships with sponsors and identifying new opportunities.
