Eigen Technologies continues to build out its C-suite as it looks to scale the business, with the appointment of Spyros Karageorgis as its first chief financial officer and Tony Ehrens as its new chief revenue officer. Karageorgis is based in London and Ehrens in New York.
Karageorgis most recently held the role of CFO & COO of Cortexica Vision Systems, an AI image recognition company. Prior to Cortexica, Karageorgis led the dual track exit and IPO of Venda, an online SaaS e-commerce platform, which resulted in the company’s sale to NetSuite. He also served as the COO of MedicAnimal, a Balderton-backed online animal pharmacy.
Ehrens joins Eigen from robotic process automation business Kryon Systems, where he was general manager and VP sales, Americas. Before that he was SVP global sales for smart process automation SaaS platform WorkFusion and SVP of sales at Sitrion.
Eigen uses natural language processing to extract data from documents, include the likes of Libor repapering; verifying that assets qualify for Solvency II; and verifying terms to speed up negotiations.
The London-founded company raised $37m Series B in November last year led by Lakestar and Dawn Capital, with participation from Temasek and Goldman Sachs. In may it appointed David Brooks as its first chief customer officer, and Eigen says that the executive team has delivered its best ever sales quarter in calendar Q3 2020, with bookings almost three times the level in the same period last year.
Dr. Lewis Z. Liu, co-founder & CEO of Eigen Technologies said that Karageorgis “not only brings extensive experience of leading a disciplined finance function, including in times of corporate activity, he also brings a background in engineering.”
He added: “Tony comes to us with a fantastic track record of delivering revenue growth in software companies such as ours.”
