Jallow brings broad-based SaaS and accounting experience to solidify FloQast’s leadership team
LOS ANGELES, September 28, 2021 — FloQast, a provider of accounting workflow automation software created by accountants for accountants, today announced the appointment of Razzak Jallow as Chief Financial Officer, a new position at the company. As CFO, Jallow will lead multiple functions across the company including accounting, finance and business operations.
FloQast announced its $1.2 billion valuation less than three months ago, and Jallow’s role as CFO will bring a rich level of expertise to the company that will only increase its strides towards IPO. Prior to joining the team, Jallow served as the vice president of finance at Looker – a data analytics company which was acquired by Google in 2019.
"Razzak is the perfect CFO to lead FloQast. His financial pedigree combined with a deep understanding of helping SaaS businesses scale puts him at the center of FloQast's mission to drive operational excellence through the controller's office," said Mike Whitmire, CPA*, CEO and co-founder of FloQast. “I expect him to make huge contributions, not only to FloQast's thriving operations, but also by assuming an important position as a spokesperson for FloQast's philosophies among like-minded CFOs, controllers and chief accounting officers."
Jallow’s broad-based understanding of Software as a Service (SaaS) and experience across financial planning and analysis, accounting, tax and treasury, sales and investor operations – in both public and private companies including, Google, Apple, Adobe, and Looker – uniquely position him to support the company’s rapid and efficient business scaling, as well as other strategic initiatives to deliver profitable growth.
“FloQast has a fantastic product addressing a need in a market that’s growing but has been underserved for a while,” Jallow said. “The management team is extremely strong with a shared passion for doing what’s right, so I’m excited to join the team and bring value to our customers.”
The addition of Jallow is part of a recent hiring spree at FloQast. On Sept. 2, the company named Justin Smith to the newly created role of vice president of customer success.
