Fazal Merchant has been appointed as the new chief operating officer and chief financial officer at Tanium, a US cyber-security and systems management company.
Merchant currently serves as an advisor to WndrCo, a new media and technology company. Previously, he held the title of CFO and other leadership positions in top companies and spend eight years in investment banking. His diverse background, collaborative nature, and breadth of experience make him the perfect business partner to help drive our continued mission.
“From our first conversation, it was clear to us that Fazal was the right fit for Tanium. To build a truly great company, we need proven business leaders who are passionate about our mission and whose values align with our own. In addition, for this role specifically, we wanted someone with experience outside of the tech sector. While we do many things right in our industry, our leadership team recognises there's a lot to be learned from other sectors of business that often don't make their way to Silicon Valley,” said Orion Hindawi, CEO at Tanium.
