Eigen Technologies has appointed Dr Ashley Fidler as its new chief product officer (CPO). Fiddler joins Eigen from MDR service provider eSentire, where she was also CPO. A natural language processing specialist, Dr. Fiddler previously led and built the product function for Versive, an AI start-up that was subsequently purchased by eSentire. Before moving into tech start-ups and scale-ups, Ashley held both data science and product roles at Microsoft, working after graduate school on the Xbox and Cortana language system.
Dr Lewis Z. Liu, co-founder & CEO of Eigen Technologies said: “A rigorous, client-focused approach to product is essential for any serious technology business, so I’m delighted to welcome Ashley to the Eigen team. I know that her expertise in building best-in-class product functions from eSentire, Versive, and Microsoft will take us to the next level and deliver for our rapidly growing client base. Eigen is a research-led business and I’m looking forward to working with the leaders of our Product, Engineering and Science teams to continue to use our machine learning technology to build great products for our clients.”
Dr. Fidler added: “Building and leading great product teams at rapidly growing companies like Eigen has been the most rewarding and fun part of my career. I’ve joined Eigen because I believe it has all the attributes necessary to do great things, from amazing core technology to brilliant people, all while addressing a clear business need. I’ve been incredibly impressed with what I’ve found in my time with the team so far and I’m really excited about the opportunity in front of us.”
