BIG DATA company Crossrider has named Moran Laufer as acting chief financial officer.
Laufer joined the AIM-listed business as group financial controller in 2012. He was a key member of the finance team that successfully supported the group’s admission to AIM in September 2014.
Prior to joining Crossrider, he was a divisional controller at SafeCharge international, a global provider of payments services, technologies and risk management solutions for online and mobile businesses.
Previously Moran worked for Ernst & Young as a senior auditor of London Stock Exchange and NASDAQ traded companies primarily focused on the technology sector.
Laufer has completed a handover process with Mark Carlisle, who, as announced on 31 May 2016, has stepped down from his role as CFO. It is anticipated that Laufer will join the Board in due course.
Commenting on the appointment Ido Erlichman, Crossrider’s group CEO, said: “I am delighted that we are appointing Moran as acting chief financial officer. He has been an integral part of the finance and commercial team for the past four years and we think this is the natural next step for him and the group.
“This is a good example of Crossrider’s depth of talent and Moran has both strong technical and commercial expertise as well as an excellent knowledge of Crossrider’s business. I look forward to working with Moran and utilising his expertise.”
