NEW YORK, May 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- ThetaRay, the leading provider of AI-based Big Data analytics, today announced the appointment of Steve Mann as Chief Marketing Officer. As CMO, he will focus on creating a differentiated and compelling brand, developing a high-return demand generation platform and redefining what it means to employ AI to detect and stop financial crime.
"Financial institutions face financial, legal, and reputational catastrophes if they can't detect or prevent financial crime," said Mann. "I was drawn to ThetaRay because its IntuitiveAI technology is the only solution that dramatically drives down false positive alerts and uncovers the unknown bad actors trying to exploit the world financial system. It does it better, faster and more accurately than legacy or AI-wannabe solutions. We must help FIs thwart money laundering, terrorist financing, and human trafficking, all the while enhancing the banks' competitiveness and regulatory compliance."
Steve has over 25 years of experience in B2B enterprise marketing, product strategy, and branding. He previously served as CMO for two fintechs: Arachnys and Axioma, as well as LexisNexis North America. Previously, he held various senior marketing roles at SAP, overseeing functions including market intelligence, the competitive sales team, customer experience, services marketing, and social media.
