Acin appoints new Head of Sales to drive its next stage of growth

Acin, the SaaS company that is digitising and networking operational risk, today announces the appointment of Craig Talbot as Head of Sales. Craig will be responsible for developing and driving Acin’s commercial strategy and execution as it moves on to its next stage of development following a series A fundraise of $12 million in September.
He will lead the scaling of Acin’s commercial operations for its financial services clients in areas such as investment banking, asset management and other sectors.

Craig brings to the company a wealth of SaaS and technology sales leadership experience, having held a number of senior commercial roles in fast-growth, Cloud-enabled software companies. He joins from iboss, the global cloud security provider, where he led the build-out of Europe and Asia operations, spearheading talent onboarding and the development of new commercial channels to accelerate the scaling of the business.

Paul Ford, CEO of Acin, commented: “As Acin increases our velocity to cross ‘the chasm’ and moves into acceleration mode, it is fundamental to our success that we have a Sales function that is focused on growth and value, and has the expertise to deliver it. I am excited to see Craig join Acin as his depth of experience brings a crucial further injection of Sales disciplines that will take our team to the next level.”

Craig Talbot, incoming Head of Sales, added: “I am very impressed with how Acin has created a SaaS service that is revolutionising the way major global financial institutions now manage their non-financial risk and controls. With digitisation, data science and a Cloud-based industry network, Acin is empowering business leaders to assess risk and make informed decisions. This, together with Acin’s many years of collective executive financial services experience—recently endorsed by investment from thought leaders in their respective fields, Fitch and Notion Capital—makes Acin a very impressive business to be part of, with exciting times ahead.”
