Welcome Kiran Narsu! | Kasisto

Our New CRO is Cranking up the Heat

I am happy to announce that Kiran Narsu is our new Chief Revenue Officer leading the next phase of our growth. Kiran has exactly what it takes to leverage our successes and help us exceed our aggressive goals – industry relationships, technical depth to translate market benefits, and growing global teams that are fast, lean, and laser-focused on results.

In fact, he brings more than 20 years of experience working with global financial institutions – selling and deploying products and solutions built with leading-edge technology. Most recently, he was SVP of Sales at Digital Reasoning, a cognitive computing company with AI-based products to manage risk and compliance. He also brings valuable experience from Pegasystems, and Oracle where he drove the growth for OFSAA, a cornerstone of Oracle’s financial services go-to-market strategy. His success at Oracle started as an early executive at i-flex, an Oracle acquisition, and creator of compliance, risk management, and financial performance analytical apps.

Kiran will grow and streamline our direct and indirect sales channels in North America, APAC, and EMEA to accelerate the rapid adoption of KAI, our conversational AI platform. We count many of the world’s leading financial institutions as customers, including DBS and Mastercard – and many under NDA in various stages of deployment.  We’re excited to leverage Kiran’s track record for building successful teams and establishing deep relationships with customers that result in high-value sales and exponential growth.

Since our Series A funding in January, we’ve been busy investing in growth and scaling – hiring key people in sales, solutions, and engineering as well as opening offices in APAC. We also recently introduced a significant platform enhancement, KAI Insights, which takes data analysis to the next level by creating proactive recommendations, contextual promotions, and real-time notifications.

Suffice it to say, the demand for KAI among retail banks, credit card companies, and wealth management firms is exploding. The tire-kicking phase is over and financial institutions around the globe realize how conversational AI can impact their businesses. We’re excited to have Kiran put our sales into high-gear.
