New York, November 1, 2022 – Urbint, the leading AI platform for predicting and stopping threats to critical infrastructure and workers, has hired Jaylene Kunze as Chief Financial Officer. Kunze was previously CFO at Uplight, which provides software solutions to 80+ electric and gas utilities, and sold for $1.5 billion in 2021. Jaylene will lead the scaling of Urbint’s finance and operations systems amid the company’s rapid growth.
“Jaylene is one of the energy tech industry’s top CFOs, having built the framework for growth that built one of the most successful verticalized software companies in our sector,” said Corey Capasso, Founder and CEO of Urbint. “Her experience and knowledge of the industry will be transformative for Urbint as we build the operational risk platform of the future.”
“Urbint has the right technology at the right time to make a major impact over the coming years,” said Jaylene Kunze. “The energy industry is recognizing the need to manage operational risk through new technology, and legislative tailwinds are only accelerating adoption. I'm very excited about where Urbint is today, and where we’re going to go.”
Kunze led Tendril’s growth as CFO for three years, and spearheaded its merger with Simple Energy to form Uplight. Prior to that, Kunze held financial leadership roles at engineering firm MWH Global, and other companies.
