Zimperium Names Proven Finance and Operations Leader, Brian Szeto, Chief Financial Officer
Brian Szeto has joined Zimperium as our Chief Financial Officer, where he will play a strategic role in accelerating our industry-leading growth and expansion by leading all finance, accounting, real estate, human resources, and information technology efforts.
“Brian adds so much to the Zimperium team,” said Shridhar Mittal, our chief executive officer. “He has more than 20 years leading finance and operations for several start-ups and multi-billion dollar SaaS, software and hardware companies, including Workday, Juniper Networks, TIBCO and ThoughtSpot. Brian brings operational excellence as we rapidly scale and accelerate growth.”
Prior to joining Zimperium, Brian was the VP of Finance for ThoughtSpot, a hyper-growth startup. While at ThoughtSpot, he established investor relations and financial planning and analysis (FP&A) functions and defined KPIs for long range planning. At Workday, Brian built the product and marketing finance functions before leading corporate finance activities including quarterly, annual, and multi-year strategic planning and associated key business analytics.
“I was first exposed to mobile security while at Juniper Networks,” Brian said. “Since then, I’ve had an eye on the mobile security space and I’ve seen how Zimperium – the global leader in mobile device and app security – has gained a tremendous amount of market traction in various sectors including financial, government, automotive and healthcare.”
Brian continued, “The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) announcement – in which we will be delivering comprehensive Mobile Endpoint Protection to the unclassified government furnished devices of servicemen and women around the world – is just one such example of how the market is beginning to come to us. I can’t think of a better time to join this team and mission.”
