At Braze, we work tirelessly to ensure our customers are at the forefront of today’s constantly-evolving customer engagement landscape. We’re committed to our customers and to theirs, ensuring our technology and its ecosystem can power relevant, memorable experiences for individuals around the world. We know consumers expect—and deserve—more, so as those expectations rise, we evolve to exceed them.
Today, we continue that evolution by welcoming two new leaders to the Braze team. Isabelle Winkles joins Braze as our first-ever Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and Tara Walpert Levy joins our board of directors effective today. We’re excited for the expertise, value, and perspective they’ll bring to the future of Braze.
"Braze is a standout enterprise technology leader that enables the world’s biggest brands to foster human connections with consumers,” said Winkles. “The future is bright for Braze’s rapid growth, and I’m looking forward to leading the finance team as a strategic partner to the business, in order to support a rapidly expanding company.”
With nearly 20 years experience in finance leadership roles, Winkles joins us after serving as the Chief of Staff to the CFO at leading professional service company Cognizant. Prior to that, Winkles spent 18 years at Morgan Stanley, where—following the financial crisis—she established and led finance teams to support strategic business decisions in the context of evolving global regulatory landscapes.
Currently leading agency and brand solutions for Google and YouTube, new board member Tara Walpert Levy brings nearly three decades of marketing and tech experience to Braze. She is responsible for Google's multi-billion dollar advertising and tech business with third-party agencies and marketing partners. Prior to her current role, Levy led Ads Product Marketing for Google, YouTube, and Doubleclick.
We couldn’t be more thrilled to start off this year—and this decade—with the addition of two fantastic leaders. To check out what else we’ve been working on, get up-to-date with our Winter Product Launch.
