TEL AVIV: Cybersecurity firm Cyrebro has announced the appointment of senior finance management executive Dorit Burner-Romi as its new Chief Financial Officer. Her appointment also demonstrates the company’s commitment towards improving diversity and gender parity within the organisation.
A seasoned finance professional, Dorit has extensive experience of leading international high-growth startups and early-stage tech companies. Her previous employers include Ernst & Young, America-Israel Investments and Mobixell Networks.
Till 2019, she was the Vice President, Finance for Datorama which she had joined as a fledgling endeavour with 16 employees. Over the next five years, she led the company towards its growth to a 400-employee workforce with an ARR of over $70m, 7 subsidiaries in 3 continents working out of 17 offices around the world. She also played an active role in the company’s eventual $850 million acquisition by Salesforce.
Cyrebro co-founder and CEO Nadav Arbel said in an official statement that he was thrilled to have Dorit on his team. “She is a shrewd advisor and the ideal executive to help further grow and support our company following our 300% YoY growth and global expansion, both in customers and employees. We look forward to her contributions as we address the growing MS(S)P ecosystem, and provide our clients of all sizes with world-class proactive defense cybersecurity infrastructure,” he further said. The company aims to make cybersecurity accessible for businesses of all sizes.
Recently, Nadav had shared his diversity strategy and vision of having an even split of men and women in management and company leadership positions. He had even pointed out that more than half of the tech startups across the world lack a woman in leadership position, and that according to Silicon Valley Bank’s 2020 Startup Outlook Report, only 41% of tech startups have at least one woman in an executive role.
In her new role at Cyrebro, Dorit would be overseeing financial reporting, accounting, tax, financial planning, strategic business plans, and investor relations. “I’m eager to dive into my new role, and join a team that has been financially savvy and dedicated to their vision of cutting-edge cybersecurity protection and solutions being a right, not a privilege,” she said regarding the new job. She also said she was looking forward to working with the team to accelerate and execute its strategic plan and deliver exceptional value for both customers and investors.
