AppZen Further Expands Leadership Team with Rising Market Demand for Finance Digital Transformation

San Jose, CA – August 5, 2020 – AppZen, the world’s leading AI solution for modern finance teams, today announced the addition of Ali Sadat, Vice President of Product, to the AppZen executive team. This comes on the heels of AppZen’s recent leadership expansion of Chief Marketing Officer, Wendy Yale, and Chief Revenue Officer, Richard Terry-Lloyd, as the company continues its growth to now service over 1,800 enterprises.

“We are delighted to have Ali join our team. As finance transformation grows, and we continue to innovate our AppZen AI platform, Ali will be an essential part of bringing our market-leading innovations to fruition,” said Anant Kale, chief executive officer and founder of AppZen.

Sadat is a passionate product leader with over 20 years of experience bringing innovative products to the market. Most recently, he served as the VP of Product for Medallia where he and his team launched a number of market-leading customer experience products and are designated market leaders by industry analysts. Previously, he held product leadership positions at Salesforce, Mulesoft, IBM, and Cisco.

“Pervasive AI in enterprise apps is the next big evolutionary step for digital transformation in modern enterprises. However, generic AI applied broadly is rarely effective,” said Ali Sadat, Vice President of Product. “Appzen’s focus on solving critical problems faced by under-served finance teams through a cloud AI platform is a game-changer.”

The continuous leadership expansion comes as AppZen is experiencing increased demand across various industries as companies shift to digital transformation due to COVID-19 and demand for a remote workforce. AppZen’s finance solutions comply with company policystreamline the process while reducing cost for businesses looking to prioritize finance automation.
