Former Telogis Chief Financial Officer, Kyle Messman, Brings Deep Experience in SaaS Industry to Leading Sales Acceleration Platform
Los Angeles – Sept. 8, 2016 — Velocify, the leading sales acceleration platform, has hired Kyle Messman as chief financial officer as the company continues to scale in line with accelerating growth. Messman is a seasoned executive with extensive experience overseeing finance organizations for high-growth companies, most recently serving as the chief financial officer at Telogis, which sold to Verizon Communication in August of this year.
As chief financial officer at Velocify, Messman will be responsible for ensuring the finance organization can enable the company to maintain its rapid growth trajectory as it scales, capitalizing on the growing global demand for sales acceleration solutions that drive greater efficiency for the world’s leading sales organizations.
“Kyle brings incredible bench strength to our already world class executive team,” said Nick Hedges, president and CEO of Velocify. “He is one of the few CFO’s who have taken a SaaS company through several growth stages to IPO-scale and had a highly successful exit. His skills and pattern recognition are really going to help us make the decisions necessary to grow Velocify at the pace of the vast opportunity in front of us.”
Prior to joining Velocify, Messman served as the chief financial officer of SaaS-based mobile enterprise management provider Telogis, where he led the process of raising over $200M in equity and debt capital to fund growth, completed several acquisitions, and ultimately oversaw the company’s successful sale to Verizon Communications.
Messman previously handled corporate financial planning for a major semiconductor manufacturer, where his responsibilities included SEC and financial reporting, capital transactions and financial planning and analysis. Messman has also spent several years as an investment banker focused on mergers and acquisitions and financings in the technology services and software sectors. Messman earned a B.S. in Economics from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and an M.B.A. in Finance from the Graziadio School of Business at Pepperdine University.
“I am thrilled to join Velocify as CFO during this time of tremendous growth for the company,” said Messman. “As the sales acceleration market continues to expand and Velocify advances its leading position in the industry, I’m eager to help scale the financial infrastructure that will support our success.”
