Haywood joins world’s leading provider of Finance AI for modern finance teams to drive next phase of growth
AppZen, the disruptive leader in Finance AI software, today announced that Mark Haywood has joined the company as Vice President Sales EMEA. In the role, Haywood will be responsible for driving the company’s growth objectives, enhancing customer success, and expanding the team in EMEA.
Haywood joins AppZen with over 21 years of experience working in technology, helping to scale the European operations of hyper-growth companies such as ServiceNow and MongoDB. Most recently, Haywood served as Director of Sales at Perspectium, growing the European sales team and guiding solution architecture, customer relationships and marketing.
“Mark’s extensive experience in enterprise software sales and the application infrastructure world will be invaluable to helping AppZen expand growth opportunities in EMEA,” said Anant Kale, CEO, AppZen. “Our recent survey of CFOs confirms there’s increased optimism about the future and a prioritisation of autonomising labour-intensive finance functions like invoice processing and expense auditing. We’re delighted for Mark to join our leadership team as we unveil new AI-powered products and innovations in the AP, invoicing, and overall spend audit space and continue to answer increasing enterprise demand.”
“AI has moved from experimental to operational, but for many companies, finance has yet to go through a major transformation, with many functions still requiring a great deal of manual and high-risk activity,” said Mark Haywood, Vice President of Sales EMEA, AppZen. “AppZen is a leader in autonomous processing for modern finance teams, and I’m excited to join at this exciting stage of rapid growth as we introduce leading-edge products like AppZen Autonomous AP, work with new partners and build out the EMEA team.”
