Jeremy Bentley

Chief Executive Officer

Jeremy Bentley is the founder and CEO of Smartlogic. He makes two world class products – Semaphore, the Content Intelligence platform, and organic olive oil on his farm in Spain. He is an engineer by training and has spent much of his career solving enterprise information management problems. His clients are innovators who build new products using Semaphore's modeling, auto-classification, text analytics and visualization capabilities. They are in many industries, including banking and finance, publishing, oil and gas, government, and life sciences, and have in common a dependence on their information assets and a need to monetize, manage and unify them. Jeremy's love of challenges stands him well when helping clients and when racing Hobie Cats in a strong winds, which he does to relax. Jeremy has a BSc with honors in mechanical engineering from Edinburgh University.
