Yodlee, Inc., the leading provider of personal financial management (PFM) and integrated payments solutions, today announced the appointment of Jim Frankola as Chief Financial Officer.
"With many of the world's leading financial institutions and portals as customers, and a profitable, high growth business model, Yodlee is at an exciting stage in its market leadership," said Anil Arora, Chief Executive Officer of Yodlee. "Jim has tremendous expertise helping innovative SaaS companies like ours manage rapid economic growth and refine the financial and operational models necessary to build large, sustainable businesses. We are thrilled to add Jim's leadership, insight, and enthusiasm to our executive team."
Mr. Frankola joins Yodlee from Ariba, Inc., a leading provider of Spend Management solutions, where he was Executive Vice President and held the role of Chief Financial Officer from 2001 through 2008. He led Ariba through several transformations, establishing the company as a leader in Spend Management solutions and transitioning Ariba from a traditional enterprise application vendor to a top-performing Software as a Service company. Jim also helped define the strategy that has positioned Ariba as the global leader of cloud-based collaborative commerce solutions. As a measure of this success, Ariba built one of the leading on-demand businesses with $152M in 2009 SAAS revenues, while improving its overall non-GAAP net income margins from breakeven in 2002 to 18% in 2009. Prior to Ariba, Mr. Frankola held various financial and executive positions at Avery Dennison Corporation and IBM.
