LexisNexis has a new site leader for its growing operations at NCSU's Centennial Campus.

Jeff Pfiffer, who is vice president of product management for North America, is taking the site leader role at the Raleigh Technology Center, the company announced Tuesday.

The move comes as LexisNexis continues to expand the Raleigh operation.

“We’re advancing what’s possible for our customers through data-driven decision tools.” said Pfeifer. “I’ve worked closely with our Raleigh team for many years to pursue this objective and I’m thrilled to lead our local team of innovators.”

Pfeifer has worked for the company since 1989.

"Pfeifer is responsible for overseeing continued growth and expansion of the site. In addition to managing the site, Pfeifer will lead the company’s community engagement, LexisNexis Cares efforts and rule of law work in Raleigh," the company said.

This year, he has overseen the launch of Lexis Answers, an artificial intelligence enhancement for LexisNexis’ Lexis Advance offering. Lexus Answers was developed at the Raleigh center.

“Jeff is a respected leader inside and outside of our business with more than 28 years of experience in legal technology,” said Mike Walsh, CEO of LexisNexis Legal & Professional. “He puts the customer and customer innovation at the center of everything he does. We couldn’t be more excited for Jeff to continue to build our Raleigh team and engage with the greater Triangle community.”

Growing Raleigh presence

LexisNexis now has some 700 workers at the Raleigh operation.

A company spokesperson told WRAL TechWire that the firm expects "to continue hiring moving forward."

Available jobs include product management, user experience (UX), engineering, software development and data science, and more.

"Talent is the primary factor driving growth for us. As you well know, the Triangle is world-renowned for producing high caliber professionals," the spokesperson added.

"Our Raleigh Technology Center on NC State’s Centennial Campus gives us access to that talent (both on campus and in the region generally) and fuels innovation across the company."
