During the first half of 2022, Kasisto experienced its most rapid growth ever! A significant percentage of that growth has been rooted in North America, and especially in the US Community Banking segment, where incredible partnerships have enabled us to go to market pre-integrated with digital banking power houses like NCR, FIS and Q2.
With our most recent Series C investment announced last week, we intend to double down on that growth by rapidly expanding our reach across the North America footprint. We plan to bring the power of our industry-leading, multi-tenant KAI platform–built from the deep banking expertise we’ve collected from more than 100 million financial conversations and front-ended by our acclaimed Enlighten user experience layer–to hundreds of financial institutions, across all banking segments.
And so, today we are delighted to announce that digital banking industry veteran, Lou Anne Moody, has joined our Kasisto team as the Managing Director of North America.
Lou Anne will lead our revenue operations across this critically important market. She and her team will steward our Kasisto purpose of democratizing financial knowledge, and tend to our vision of empowering better financial decisions and wellness through conversational AI.
Lou Anne brings more than 25 years of experience leading top-performing sales teams in the fintech space. Most recently Lou Anne was responsible for client sales at Alkami, delivering record-breaking sales growth there. Previously, she led enterprise sales and partnerships at Headspace, helping companies, large and small, to lessen stress and burnout for their employees during the pandemic. Lou Anne has also held senior leadership positions at other fintech firms, including Malauzai and Intuit/Digital Insight.
We are excited to have Lou Anne join our team. She is known for applying strong operational rigor across the sales cycle and for enabling teams to deliver maximum results through strategic thinking and engagement. This is just the sort of leadership we’ll need as we scale to the next level.
Welcome Lou Anne!
