Bringing plenty of HR experience from the technology sector, Banerjee will oversee KnowBe4’s HR operations across 11 countries.
Security awareness training provider KnowBe4 has appointed 30-year HR veteran, Ani Banerjee to the role of Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO).
Bringing plenty of HR experience from the technology sector, Banerjee will oversee KnowBe4’s HR operations across 11 countries. He will be responsible for developing new initiatives to enhance the company’s organisational culture, its recruitment channels, and its diversity, inclusion, and equity (DIE) strategies.
Currently based at the company's headquarters in Florida, Banerjee has worked across North America, Asia, and Europe in previous tenures with Dell, Yahoo and AOL. In his assignment immediately prior to KnowBe4, he was at VMware for eight years, most recently as Global HR Head for SaaS Transformation Business Units.
On his appointment, Banerjee said: "I came to KnowBe4 in part because the company has a strong, innovative culture, and extremely high caliber staff. I saw that within the company people operate as business partners to achieve common goals, which is something of a brass ring for HR."
KnowBe4’s CEO, Stu Sjouwerman, emphasised the care that went into the choice of Banerjee: "Ani’s experience and input have shown us that he is a leader who can further our accomplishments and strengthen our exemplary team. His record of HR leadership in global markets is a particularly strong asset as we launch our next phase of expansion."
