Business analytics platform Sisense has appointed former Mimecast senior executive Adam Towns as Chief Financial Officer.

Sisense says that Towns will lead the company’s finance and business operations teams and will scale an already “strong and growing company as it meets increasing demand and opportunity”

At Mimecast, Towns was SVP of Finance and oversaw a broad range of functions including, strategic planning, investor relations, FP&A, analytics and BI, leading the company through a successful IPO.

“In that role, he also helped scale and grow the company from 100 employees and $30 million in revenue to nearly 2,000 employees and over $500 million in revenue,” Sisense said.

“Sisense has continued its track record of growth in 2020, reaching new revenue, product and customer milestones. This makes it the perfect time for Adam to join the company with his experience in building global SaaS businesses and accelerating growth,” said Amir Orad, CEO of Sisense.

“Our industry is moving fast into a new generation of analytics agility with the need to infuse analytics everywhere and deliver actionable intelligence. Sisense is well positioned to lead the market with our AI-driven, embedded analytics and open cloud platform.”

“I am thrilled to bring my experience in strategic planning, operational excellence and scaling businesses,” said Adam Towns.
