Complysci adds two to Board of Directors
ComplySci, a provider of regulatory technology and compliance solutions for the financial services sector, has added two new members to its Board of Directors – David Eisner, a former senior US Treasury official, past ComplySci executive chairman, successful technology investor and executive, and Sari Granat, Executive Vice President, Chief Administrative Officer and General Counsel for IHS Markit, a publicly traded provider of market intelligence, analytics and technology.
Eisner and Granat bring added experience, expertise, and leadership to the board, which in August added Smarsh Chairman and Founder Stephen Marsh and FMG Suite Chief Marketing and Experience Officer Susan Theder following K1 Investment Management's USD120 million strategic investment in company.
Amy Kadomatsu, CEO of ComplySci, says: "As an organisation, we are truly gratified to welcome two more board members with the long-standing executive experience and intellectual gravitas of David Eisner and Sari Granat. Both seasoned leaders who have overseen the growth of nascent technology companies into highly valued, well respected technology giants, David and Sari are joining ComplySci at a pivotal moment in the company's history, when our automated employee compliance solutions have never been more necessary for private equity firms, hedge funds, broker dealers and other financial services institutions. Their guidance will be a crucial asset as we execute on our long-term growth and expansion roadmap."
Eisner served as executive chairman of the ComplySci board from 2016 to 2018, including a tenure as acting CEO in 2016. Earlier in his career, he served as Executive Vice President at the investment banking, asset management and investment management firm Jefferies & Co, followed by the founding of TheMarkets.com in 2000, which he led until its sale to The McGraw-Hill Companies in 2010. He has served as an investor, advisor and board member for various startups and growth companies. In his most recent role, Eisner served as Assistant Secretary for Management in the US Department of the Treasury from 2018 to 2021. He is a graduate of American University and the Boston University School of Law.
Eisner says: "It's a tremendous professional milestone to return to ComplySci, a company that I have seen grow from a fledgling startup to the thriving technology leader it is today. With the strategic support of K1, the guidance of the board and the sterling leadership of Amy Kadomatsu, the future is bright for ComplySci, and I am honoured to return for the next phase of its journey."
At IHS Markit, Granat manages over 800 global team members focused on legal, risk, compliance, information security and information technology functions. She joined Markit in 2012 and has built the firm's compliance and risk function while guiding the firm through multiple transactions, including its initial public offering in 2014, its merger with IHS in 2016, and its pending merger with S&P Global. Prior to IHS Markit, Granat served as Counsel, Intellectual Property and Data Privacy at Dow Jones & Co, followed by tenures at Kaplan Inc. as Associate General Counsel and Vice President, New Media and TheMarkets.com as Vice President, Legal Affairs and Business Development through its sale to S&P Capital IQ. She is a graduate of Yale University and the New York University School of Law.
Granat says: "Having watched ComplySci's growth from afar, I was impressed with the strides the company has made over the years in innovating the technologies that help financial services firms navigate an ever more complex regulatory environment. I look forward to collaborating with Amy Kadomatsu and her team as we chart ComplySci's growth trajectory for the future."
