Steve Zagoudis is a governance architect and a leading authority on Data Governance, Information Governance and Data Risk Management systems and strategies. He is founder and CEO of MetaGovernance, an Enterprise Information Management (EIM) consulting firm. A veteran to advising multi-national corporations and government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs), Steve is passionate about helping organizations solve their critical data challenges.

Steve’s extensive background in business operations, IT, and Information Governance includes directing projects at Standard Oil, BP Worldwide, Sequent, IBM, Goldman-Sachs, and the Federal Home Loan Banks.

Steve is a strong advocate of governance controls in the world of structured and unstructured big data. Today’s regulatory environment is especially harsh for organizations that rely heavily on spreadsheets, end-user computing, and manual data reconciliations for financial disclosure. For over 25 years he has helped clients across multiple industries improve their data accuracy and integrity while reducing operational, compliance, and reputational risk.

Steve is an avid speaker and blogger in the areas of Lean GovernanceTM and overall data integrity solutions. He is actively involved with nonprofit organizations such as the Data Governance Professionals Organization and the Private Directors Association.
