Former Outcome Health Corporate Counsel Will Support Music Gear Marketplace’s Continued Growth
Reverb.com, the online marketplace for buying, selling, and learning about music gear, has hired Collin Williams as General Counsel. As Reverb.com — which doubled its sales and headcount in 2016 — continues to grow, Williams will be responsible for setting up and leading all legal functions in the company.
“Music has been such a huge part of my life, and I feel incredibly lucky to join a company that allows me to combine my legal expertise with one of my passions,” said Williams, who sang a cappella in college and plays both guitar and drums. “It’s an exciting time to join Reverb and I’m looking forward to making an impact as the company continues to grow.”
Williams joins Reverb.com from leading healthcare decision platform Outcome Health (formerly ContextMedia), where he served as Corporate Counsel. Prior to Outcome Health, he served as Corporate Counsel in Oracle’s cloud computing legal department, focusing on complex SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS transactions, data privacy, intellectual property, licensing, and risk mitigation. Before going in-house, Williams spent nearly ten years as an attorney at Greenberg Traurig, LLP, in Chicago.
At Reverb.com, Williams will serve on the leadership team, working closely with CEO and Founder David Kalt, COO Dan Melnick, and the Board of Directors. In addition to proactively safeguarding the company, Williams will participate in future fundraising initiatives, review and negotiate Reverb.com contracts, and work closely with Director of International Strategy Kevin Drost to lead negotiations as the company continues to expand internationally.
“Not only is Collin extremely qualified to build and lead our in-house legal functions, he’s also immensely passionate about Reverb’s mission,” said Kalt. “As we continue our quest to make the world a more musical place by making it easy to buy and sell music gear, Collin will be an integral part of our growth.”
