Notarize is thrilled to welcome Kartik Ramachandran as our first CFO. Ramachandran joins us at an inflection point in our accelerated growth as our platform continues experiencing rapid adoption across various industries, and as we continue solidifying relationships with leading industry partners.
Prior to joining Notarize, Ramachandran held numerous CFO and executive leadership positions at iconic and disruptive technology companies, including Splunk, Groupon, Activision Blizzard and Xome, and has a long history of being at the financial helm of companies growing from hyper-growth phases through their initial public offering, and beyond. Ramachandran has rich experience anchoring international operations and transitioning business models to meet the demands of a digital world, and is credited for his key role leading Groupon’s IPO and in driving large-scale digital transformation at industry leaders like Splunk.
Coming off of our recent $130M Series D raise, Ramachandran will be responsible for guiding Notarize’s investments to further accelerate high-growth, innovative initiatives across the business.
“We began looking for a world-class CFO when we raised our last round, and it became clear after countless conversations with Kartik that he is both uniquely passionate and capable of building an exceptional and enduring company, has navigated the waters of nearly every scenario, and is skilled at applying high velocity, data-driven approaches to help further elevate how we serve our customers across a range of industries and verticals,” said Pat Kinsel, founder and CEO of Notarize. “The best companies in the world boast finance teams that are always evolving and are passionate about understanding every aspect of the business, and we are confident that Kartik is that person who will help Notarize accomplish our near-and-long-term goals efficiently and effectively.”
“Notarize’s trajectory and the pace at which it has achieved a leadership position in a beachhead to the future of commerce is impressive to say the least. As we have adjusted to a digital-first world over the past two years especially, Notarize stands out as a model company with both the foresight and capability to seamlessly serve rapidly evolving enterprise and consumer needs,” said Ramachandran. "I look forward to helping further accelerate the reach of Notarize's innovative products that are helping eliminate friction and improve trust in executing transactions worldwide."
Notarize is pleased to welcome Ramachandran in addition to our other key executive hires and promotions in the last year, including Chief Customer Officer Kim Rose, Chief Marketing Officer Lisa Kalscheur, Chief Technology Officer Derek Knudsen, and Chief People Officer David Razon.
