Avalara, Inc. (NYSE: AVLR), a leading provider of cloud-based tax compliance automation for businesses of all sizes, today announced that its chief financial officer (CFO), Bill Ingram, will retire March 31, 2020, and he will join the Board of Directors. Ingram will be succeeded as CFO by Ross Tennenbaum, Avalaras executive vice president of strategic initiatives.

Ingram joined Avalara in December 2015 as chief financial officer, and built a finance team ready to manage a public company and lead the team through Avalaras IPO. Im proud of our world-class team and strong financial operations, which enabled us to complete a successful IPO and follow-on offering, Ingram said. Avalara continues to deliver strong revenue and core customer growth, and the company is well positioned for the future.

In his current role as executive vice president of strategic initiatives, Tennenbaum leads several business units grown from Avalaras investments and acquisitions, representing many of the companys primary growth initiatives. Tennenbaums experience was built over a 10-year investment banking career at Goldman Sachs and Credit Suisse, including working with Avalara for more than five years and leading its IPO in 2018. Having been a part of the Avalara story both from the outside and on the inside, I understand what a great company Avalara is and what a strong team Bill has built, said Tennenbaum. Im excited to have the opportunity to lead Avalaras financial operations as we continue to support the companys growth.

Bill has been an invaluable contributor to Avalaras success during his four years with us, said Scott McFarlane, Avalaras chief executive officer. We are fortunate to have benefited from Bills expertise and leadership, and we look forward to Bills continued support when he joins our Board. At the same time, were thrilled to have Ross already in place to lead our finance team and we expect a seamless transition between he and Bill. As demonstrated by this intended CFO transition, the Board and I are focused on building the next generation of leaders, which is critical in our pursuit of Avalaras vision to be the leading global cloud compliance platform.
