Pecan AI, the leader in AI-based predictive analytics for business teams and the BI analysts who support them, today announced the appointment of Jen Grant to its Board of Directors. Jen will serve as an independent board member, a first for the company. She brings 15 years of experience to the role, with deep expertise in building, scaling and advising high-growth technology companies as a CEO, CMO and board member.
Jen is a current board member of Dialpad and Kyndi and advises Appify, Stych, Waitlist.me, and Postal.io. Previously, she served as CEO of Appify, CMO of Looker and Elastic, and SVP of Marketing at Box. She led Looker’s marketing until its $2.6B acquisition by Google in 2019, spearheaded the rebrand of Elastic and built the team that took the company public for $2.4B in 2018. As SVP of Marketing at Box, she grew the organization to an industry-leading enterprise content company with a $1.7B IPO in 2015. Grant also spent four years at Google leading the Google Apps EDU, Gmail and Book Search marketing teams. She holds an MBA from Wharton and a BA from Princeton.
“I’m honored to be appointed to Pecan’s board of directors,” said Grant. “When I was at Looker, we put analytics and data exploration into the hands of business teams, and now Pecan puts the power of predictive analytics through AI-based modeling into the hands of business teams. With Pecan, companies can literally anticipate the future actions of users, buyers, or customers, and then can put those predictions into immediate action within their product, website, or buying cycle. It’s not just about dashboards anymore. I am thrilled to be working with the talented team at Pecan to bring this incredible capability to every business everywhere.”
As part of her position, Grant will work closely with other board members and the management team as the company scales and expands its market position.
“Jen is a highly accomplished enterprise tech leader and we’re proud to welcome her to our board,” said Zohar Bronfman, CEO and co-founder of Pecan AI. “She has an impressive track record building category-creating companies from the ground-up and growing them to over a billion-dollar valuations. Jen joining our board provides important validation of our technology offering and her expertise will be invaluable as we continue to scale the business.”
In February 2022, Pecan announced a $66 million Series C funding round and continues on an impressive growth trajectory. It reported significant growth in the first half of 2022, including Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) jumping 150%, customer count increasing by 121% and the number of employees now at 125, up by more than 60%.
