KX, a global pioneer in vector and time-series data management, has taken significant strides to cement its position in the rapidly growing AI vector database sector, with the appointment of two senior executives.

The appointment of Anitha Gopalan as Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and Peter Finter as Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) demonstrate KX’s commitment to building a team of experienced and visionary leaders to accelerate the company’s growth and build on its category leadership for the KDB.AI vector database.

CEO Ashok Reddy encapsulates the company’s ambition, stating: The vast potential of our technology necessitates an all-in commitment to excellence, innovation, and growth. Anitha and Peter, with their proven hyper-growth experience, perfectly align with our objectives. Together, we aim to address our customers’ intricate data challenges while seizing the opportunities that generative AI offers.

Anitha Gopalan, Chief Financial Officer, KX

With a proven track record of delivering mission critical results for hyper-growth companies, Anitha brings more than 25 years of finance and operational expertise, mainly in the SaaS and technology sectors. Having held leadership roles at companies including Fireblocks, Rapid7, Catalant Technologies, Lyniate and iPass, Anitha has an enviable track record of building high-performing teams and scalable infrastructure that successfully deliver hyper-growth and major global expansion programs.

Her operational and data-driven mindset, combined with a visionary capacity to transform and scale businesses, will be key in supporting the leadership team in transforming KX into a high growth SaaS company.

The rapid pace of innovation in generative AI – from business model improvement to new product development – has put the need for a data management and generative AI strategy top of the priority list for companies in every major industry sector globally, comments Anitha. I am looking forward to developing a comprehensive strategic vision for KX that will help us capitalize on this opportunity and position the company for accelerated growth.

Peter Finter, Chief Marketing Officer, KX

An accomplished senior executive and inspiring leader, Peter brings considerable experience building high-performing global marketing teams at hyper-growth technology companies. Alongside his expertise in marketing strategy and operations, his deep-seated knowledge of brand development, product led growth and partner marketing will be invaluable in positioning KX as a global technology provider and thought leader in the fast-emerging generative AI sector.

Notable former roles include CMO at NoSQL database vendor Couchbase, where Peter joined at early-stage start-up, leading the team through to a successful IPO in 2021. In his most recent role, Peter was CMO at third-party risk management company CyberGRX which recently completed a successful sale to a private equity firm.

In a world of machine generated data and AI, companies are going to seek out technology providers that not only help them make sense of that world but turn it to their advantage. KX is just such a company, and I’m delighted to have joined at such a pivotal moment in our growth, said Peter. Together with my fellow executives and the incredible talent we have across the company, I’m relishing the opportunity to establish KX as the undisputed leader in the AI vector database market.
