Isentia names new CFO

Media intelligence company, Isentia, has named James Orlando, former Veda Group executive as its new chief financial officer (CFO).

Commencing 28 June 2017, Orlando will be responsible for the financial management of the Isentia business as it continues to grow across the Asia Pacific region.

John Croll, managing director and chief executive officer of Isentia, said: “With his experience in finance leadership and delivering value for investors, we’re pleased to welcome Orlando to Isentia’s executive team.”

He added, “Orlando has a strong track record of working with fast-paced and data-rich companies in a career spanning nearly three decades. His expertise will be invaluable as Isentia continues to integrate its media intelligence, insights and content marketing capacities.”
