“I have had the privilege of working with some of the most innovative and successful technology companies in Silicon Valley, and Pindrop is on a similar trajectory of establishing enterprise-market dominance in the voice authentication space.” – Ed Tang, CFO, Pindrop
Voice biometrics-focused security specialist Pindrop has announced its latest major executive appointment, naming Ed Tang as its new Chief Financial Officer.
Tang brings to the role a wealth of experience in senior financial positions. He comes to the company from Lever, the provider of a talent acquisition platform, where he served as Chief Financial Officer from June of 2019. Before that, he spent five years with Box as its VP of Strategic Finance, Business Analytics and GTM Operations; and he previously served as Salesforce’s VP of Finance & Strategy from 2005 to 2014.
In a statement announcing the appointment, Tang was described as a specialist “in helping rapidly growing, enterprise-focused companies reach scale by developing strategic, multi-year plans, along with implementing internal operating frameworks and infrastructure necessary to execute them.”
He therefore appears to be a particularly good fit for Pindrop as the company seeks to take advantage of growing market opportunities in the area of voice-based anti-fraud security. The company has been positioning itself for a new phase of growth, having acquired call center-focused call verification specialist Next Caller earlier this year, and having recently appointed a former Amazon Web Services executive as its Chief Technology Officer.
For his part, Tang is bullish on the company’s prospects. “I have had the privilege of working with some of the most innovative and successful technology companies in Silicon Valley, and Pindrop is on a similar trajectory of establishing enterprise-market dominance in the voice authentication space,” he said.
Pindrop CEO Vijay Vijay Balasubramaniyan, for his part, expressed excitement about Tang’s addition to the company’s “rapidly growing team,” adding, “Tang’s extensive experience in leading and growing complex strategy and finance teams will help further fuel our momentum as we continue to pave the way for the future of innovative, secure, and trusted voice interactions.”
