Egnyte, a cloud content security and governance solution vendor, has announced the appointment of Ravi Chopra as Chief Financial Officer (CFO). In this role, Chopra leads all aspects of finance and legal.
“After recently crossing the US$160 million annual recurring revenue milestone, fuelled by accelerating demand for our security and compliance offerings, we are pleased to welcome another executive with deep cybersecurity experience to our leadership ranks,” said Vineet Jain, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder at Egnyte. “Additionally, as we watch closely what happens in the broader environment, Ravi will be instrumental in guiding Egnyte through our next stage of exciting growth.”
Prior to joining Egnyte, Chopra worked at BugCrowd where he led the company’s financial strategy.
