Chief Financial Officer

April Downing

April is a seasoned financial and operational executive with over 20 years of experience for both publicly and privately held technology and services companies. Having raised half a billion dollars in capital, completed more than 20 acquisitions, and opened offices in over a dozen countries, April appreciates the complexity that comes from growing technology companies. 

April has co-founded two AI-powered software companies and served as CFO and COO for several high-growth companies including WP Engine, Civitas Learning, Dachis Group, and Motive. April has led an IPO, as well as investments and acquisitions by leading companies such as Silver Lake, Francisco Partners, and Alcatel.

April believes that driving success out of complexity is only possible through a cohesive leadership team and engaged employees working with clarity, alignment and accountability. Her focus on operational excellence and a positive employee experience throughout the organization starts with education about the major business drivers and ensures collaboration across teams to drive towards aligned outcomes.


I’m excited to bring my passion for operational excellence and a positive employee experience to a team that is already delivering incredible value to its customers and employees.
