Kuberno, the global legal entity management SaaS provider for corporate secretariat, legal teams, and governance professionals, today announced the appointment of Naz Sarkar as Chair and Independent Non-Executive Director.
Sarkar is Kuberno’s first NED appointment and its first Chair. He is a leading figure in governance-tech, previously serving as the CEO for Issuer Services at Computershare based in New York and London.
There, he was responsible for operations in over 21 countries with more than 10,000 business clients worth $1bn in revenues. Sarkar is also a veteran of governance practice, being a qualified Chartered Company Secretary and a fellow of the Chartered Governance Institute for over twenty years.
In his role as Chair, Naz will support Kuberno’s ambition to achieve global reach and provide a solid foundation to maintain its own standards of excellence in governance, as it scales.
The news of Naz’s appointment follows the company signing a commercial partnership and £3.5M investment with Nasdaq Ventures in April and the company’s recent integration with Insidertrack, an insider list management solution developed by Cytec, used by almost half of the FTSE 100, in June.
Commenting on the appointment Zoe Bucknell, CEO and Co-Founder of Kuberno said: “Naz is a world-leading figure in governance technology. He has brought together a suite of governance products onto a global stage and that experience will be instrumental in supporting our international expansion. In particular, his expertise in the North American market will be invaluable for us as it is a key focus for us following our partnership with Nasdaq. We look forward to leveraging Naz’s strategic insight as we quickly transition from startup to scaleup.”
Naz Sarkar, Incoming Chair and Independent Non-Executive Director of Kuberno added: “I’ve been really impressed by the Kuberno team’s great customer focus and passion for improving governance, this combined with their groundbreaking and disruptive technology, make them a very exciting proposition for me. Kuberno occupies a unique place in the market and I am delighted to be joining the company as it enters its international-growth phase. I’m looking forward to supporting the company in its global expansion.”
