Kespry has appointed Langley Eide as chief operating officer and chief financial officer.
In the role, Eide will be expected to drive Kespry’s overall strategic vision and lead its finance, analysis, research, and administration activities, and contribute significantly to its next stage of revenue growth and operational scale.
She was previously chief strategy officer at Alteryx, where she reported to the CEO from 2015 to 2019, and held a variety of operational roles to help grow the business from a privately-held, mid-stage software business to a multi-billion dollar organization.
Prior to Alteryx, Eide served as VP for finance and strategy at ServiceNow, where she reported to the CFO and built the corporate development and investor relations functions between 2012-2013.
Before ServiceNow, Eide was an executive director in Morgan Stanley’s capital markets group.
Commenting on the new role, she said: “I am really excited that Kespry is building on its leadership position in aerial intelligence to make it easier for everyone to work with and understand perception-based data.”
Adding: “This opens up new possibilities. For example, any organization with significant real assets such as land, buildings and industrial plants can reduce inspection and maintenance costs, and boost asset value as they harness the value of image and video data sources. The future of industrial work is accelerating through this digital transformation augmented by computer vision (CV) and machine learning (ML).”
