Last Friday, Laiye, a Beijing-based RPA systems developer, appointed tech industry veteran Ronen Lamdan as the CEO International. The Appointment followed $50 million in series C+ funding in a round jointly led by Ping An Global Voyager Fund and Shanghai Artificial Intelligence Industry Equity Investment Fund as we informed a few weeks ago.
In the new position, Ronen (pictured above) will lead the international expansion of Laiye. Building on the recent establishment of its new overseas office in Singapore which serves as the headquarters of the Asia Pacific region, Laiye will seek to partner with prominent enterprises Asia/Pacific and Europe, Middle East, and Africa, while collaborating with small and medium enterprises to deliver productivity, transformation, and growth that serves Laiye’s customers and empowers its communities.
Before joining Laiye, Lamdan worked as managing director at WorkFusion, a U.S.-based vendor of intelligent automation solutions combining RPA, artificial intelligence, and machine learning capabilities for business process automation. He also held high-ranking roles at companies including Microsoft and IBM, according to his LinkedIn profile.
“We warmly welcome Ronen into our team, and we believe that Laiye would be better prepared with him on board, to enable more customers to transition from the legacy RPA approach to Intelligent Automation using business user-friendly AI which enables them to run operations more efficiently, at lower cost, with higher accuracy and build digital skills in the workforce. Additionally, Laiye will continue to recruit high-skilled talent in vertical industries to unlock new opportunities in the global marketplace.”
