Spendesk hires Richard Rosenberg as chief technology officer
Spend management platform Spendesk has appointed Richard Rosenberg as its new chief technology officer (CTO).
Rosenberg joins the fintech unicorn from the Financial Times, where as CTO he was responsible for the media firm’s digital subscriptions and IT.
He previously had a 16-year stint at entertainment company Sky, working across a variety of software leadership roles. He has also held the vice president and CTO role at both Hotwire and Hotels.com.
At Spendesk, Rosenberg will be tasked with leading the firm’s engineering team as the company continues its European expansion, overseeing the security of its systems and leading the development of the firm’s software.
As part of its expansion plans, the company is set to open new offices in Spain and Italy in 2023. Headquartered in Paris, Spendesk also has offices in London, San Francisco, Berlin and Hamburg.
Speaking on his appointment, Rosenberg says the company will be constantly looking to improve “all aspects of our architecture and processes” as it continues to grow.
In January, Spendesk raised €100 million ($113 million) in a Series C extension round, valuing the company at more than €1 billion ($1.14 billion).
