Platform.sh, a unified, secure, enterprise-grade platform for building, running, and scaling web applications, announced two C-level appointments: Caroline Leroy as chief people officer and Caroline Bec Cox as chief financial officer.
Caroline Leroy brings extensive experience in HR and CPO roles in financial services, retail technology, and healthcare, including Mastercard and PayFit. As chief people officer, her role will be to keep enhancing the strong culture of Platform.sh, ensuring that its values are lived out across the entire business.
“Platform.sh has always been an entirely remote business, which comes with its own opportunities and challenges, but our experience means we’re ahead of others who are just getting to grips with this new way of working,” Leroy said. “I’m very happy to join a business that already embodies many of these values at all levels of the business and ensure the company’s innovation continues to be underpinned by high morale.
Caroline Bec Cox has a background in science and finance, including an investment banking boutique, RBC Capital Markets, and CFO at Omnidian, a cleantech startup. As CFO, Bec Cox will ensure Platform.sh remains on a sound financial footing and grows in a sustainable manner following the company’s successful Series D funding round.
“I’m delighted to join a business with innovation and environmental sustainability at its core,” Bec Cox said. “Environmental sustainability is something close to my heart, so I’m excited to work with a business that’s not only concerned with reducing its own carbon emissions, but also helping its customers reduce theirs. It’s a very exciting time to be at Platform.sh, and my role will be supporting the team to ensure continued growth.”
“A new chapter of Platform.sh means we need the right team in place to support our people and plans, and we’re very happy to welcome both Carolines to their roles,” said Fred Plais, co-founder and CEO at Platform.sh. “Their experience and knowledge will be incredibly valuable as we prepare for the next phase of growth.”
