Tang to lead finance and revenue operations as part of Pindrop’s next stage of growth.
ATLANTA July 13, 2021 — Pindrop, the global technology leader in identity, security, and trust for voice interactions, today announces Ed Tang has been named the company’s new Chief Financial Officer. Assuming the position from Jeff Hodges, Tang will lead Pindrop’s finance, revenue operations, and security organizations, as new CFO, effective immediately.
Tang brings more than 25 years of experience in strategy, finance, and operations, including leadership roles at category-winning companies like Salesforce and Box. Since June 2019, he has served as the CFO of Lever, a high-growth, industry-leading talent acquisition platform. He specializes 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. Prior to Lever, Salesforce, and Box, Tang held finance management roles at Williams Sonoma and PricewaterhouseCoopers. He holds a degree in economics from the University of California at Davis.
“I couldn’t be more excited to join the Pindrop team,” said Tang. “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. As new voice capabilities emerge, it’s changing the way we interact with technology, and Pindrop is at the forefront of defining the very standard of trusted and secure voice technology solutions.”
Tang is the latest addition to Pindrop’s executive leadership team, which recently welcomed newly appointed CTO Collin Davis at a time when the organization is experiencing significant growth and expansion of services. In the past 12 months, Pindrop has acquired Next Caller, an enterprise-grade call verification technology for contact centers, launched a new IVR solution that extends its fraud monitoring and detection capabilities for enterprises, and expanded the availability of its state-of-the-art voice authentication technology for use in OTT streaming devices, platforms, and consumer services.
“As we continue to become the industry leader in all things voice security, authentication, and verification, we’re thrilled to have Ed Tang join our rapidly growing team,” said Vijay Balasubramaniyan, CEO and co-founder of Pindrop. “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.”
