Ms O'Callaghan will repotrt to chief revenue officer Matt Downs, who joined the company last year following a decade at WorldPay, and eight years with First Data (Fiserv).

We have aggressive growth underway fueled by bringing together a holistic platform to better service companies seeking a comprehensive advanced billing and finops solution,” said Downs. “Sally is a proven leader and is committed to our vision of transforming the subscription life-cycle. As we continue to expand throughout the EMEA region, Sally’s skills and expertise will be vital, and we could not be happier to have her on board with us as we embark on the next leg of our growth journey.”
