Matt Davies, CMO, SEON
Matt joins fraud prevention startup SEON from Splunk. For SEON, the move underlines their commitment to creating well-executed B2B marketing strategies.
Following their $94 million Series B investment, Matt joins as SEON launches multiple new products and use cases, alongside further growth in their core capabilities.
CEO Jimmy Fong said: “Matt is an accomplished figure in the software and SaaS space and couldn’t fit the culture we’ve developed here at SEON any better. If you look across his career, he’s played a crucial role in helping other companies reach that next stage of development. For some, it might seem risky to leave a post-IPO business for a scrappy startup, but for us it underlines Matt’s inherent understanding of SEON’s core value.”
Matt added: “My goal is to apply the lessons I’ve learnt from some of the big companies I’ve previously worked for at SEON, while ensuring the company retains that special quality that makes it so impactful in the broader fraud fighting community. I’m so excited to get going in my role and to get stuck in daily with the amazing projects we’re working on. I’m looking forward to beginning my journey as a fraud fighter and to switching on the marketing engines needed to fuel growth. Ultimately, my mission now is to help more businesses fight fraud, and accountable marketing is essential for this.”
