Calgary’s Benevity – the largest corporate purpose software provider in the world – has a new Chief Financial Officer.
Newly appointed CFO Lance Ludman brings over 20 years of experience scaling organizations in the educational technology, social good and cloud software industries.
At Benevity, Lance will partner with all business functions to deliver scalable, data-driven financial strategies to support Benevity’s global growth.
In August the tech behemoth announced that more than $10 billion has been donated by Benevity clients and their people to over 326,000 nonprofits to-date. Benevity added that they added 124 clients in the past year, taking the company’s total client portfolio to 940.
“To help solve the pressing social and environmental issues facing the world, Benevity needs to be many times larger and more ubiquitous than it is today. Lance is precisely the type of financial executive who will get us there,” said Kelly Schmitt, Benevity’s Chief Executive Officer.
“He is a great addition to our team given his shared passion for doing good, alignment with Benevity’s culture and experience leading purpose-driven, high-growth technology companies.”
Leveraging his deep financial and operational expertise in the technology sector, Lance will drive the financial strategy of the business and scale the finance and operations teams to support global sales growth.
He joins Benevity’s executive team — reporting directly to Schmitt — and will oversee financial planning and analysis, accounting, treasury, risk and compliance, legal and operations.
