Martin Day is Being Recognized for Helping to Establish Janrain as the Industry’s Largest Independent CIAM Leader after Record Bookings in 2017
Janrain, the company that pioneered the Customer Identity and Access Management (CIAM) category, announced that Janrain CFO Martin Day will be honoured at the Portland Business Journal CFO of the Year Awards ceremony this week. As a CFO of the Year honoree, Day has demonstrated a strong record of innovation, outstanding performance and a clear track record of meaningful community involvement. Day was chosen along with a handful of other financial professionals from more than 100 nominations after Janrain experienced record bookings in 2017, including doubling new customer wins and enjoying the largest single quarter bookings in the company’s 16-year history. Janrain continues its record-setting pace for growth in 2018 with Q1 bookings that were three times that of the prior year.
“I am truly honoured to be recognized by the Portland Business Journal especially after Janrain experienced such incredible momentum in 2017, which set the stage for continued record-setting growth in 2018,” said Day, adding, “With such a talented employee base driving new product innovations and global expansion, supportive investors, and world-class customers, Janrain will continue setting the pace for the rest of the identity space.”
Day joined Janrain in June 2015 and has over 20 years of finance and operations leadership for high-growth companies. Prior to Janrain, he held finance and operations leadership positions at MotoSport (where he tripled revenue), Digimarc, Ascension Software, CSI Digital and Spinriot after starting his career at Ernst & Young.
“We’re very proud of our CFO Martin Day for being recognized for the tremendous work he has done to help drive growth, profitability, and overall success of our business,” said Janrain CEO Jim Kaskade. “Janrain is now the largest independent CIAM leader in the industry with the most mature business model compared to its peers, and Martin has been instrumental in helping us make that happen.”
The Portland Business Journal’s CFO of the Year Awards ceremony will take place on May 17 at the luxury Nines Hotel in Portland.
