MetricStream, the global market leader in integrated risk management (IRM) and governance, risk, and compliance (GRC), today announced that Gaurav Kapoor and Prasad Sabbineni have been appointed as co-Chief Executive Officers.
MetricStream has grown consistently over the last decade to become an established market leader in the GRC space. Over the past two years, MetricStream benefited from Bruce Dahlgren’s leadership as CEO by expanding the go-to-market with fresh branding, a simplified product portfolio, strategic partnerships, and accelerated GRC SaaS leadership. Last quarter, Dahlgren moved to an advisory role and helped transition the CEO’s responsibilities.
In the midst of volatile market conditions, demand for GRC continues to accelerate with significantly higher emphasis on Cyber, ESG, Operational Resiliency and Compliance. With a growing set of marquee customers, blue-chip investors, and a world-class team, MetricStream is well poised for its next phase of growth and innovation. Looking ahead, the Company is focused on continuing to accelerate its innovation and GRC SaaS leadership; provide value to its global customer base, and deepen the partner ecosystem, while achieving balanced growth and profitability.
