Telenav announced its new chief financial officer on Monday.
The provider of connected-car and location-based services selected Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) executive Adeel Manzoor to become the company’s CFO. Manzoor comes to Telenav after serving in a variety of roles for HPE, including:
— Chief financial officer and vice president of storage and big data
— Chief financial officer and vice president of mission critical systems and high performance compute
— Chief financial officer and vice president of converged infrastructure
At Telenav, Manzoor succeeds Fuad Ahmad, who has served as Telenav’s consulting interim CFO since January. Ahmad, a partner of consulting firm FLG Partners, plans to continue to provide financial consulting services to the company until the end of September for transition purposes.
“Adeel is an accomplished financial executive, and we are extremely pleased to have him join Telenav,” Telenav chairman and chief executive officer HP Jin said in a news release. “His years of successful and meaningful leadership at HPE and its predecessor Hewlett-Packard Company (HP) are a clear indication of his capabilities.
“We will leverage his extensive operational and financial expertise as Telenav delivers its next generation of enabled software and services for automobile manufacturers,” Jin continued.
In Manzoor’s multiple CFO positions at HPE, his key responsibilities spanned across full P&L management, short-term forecasting, budgeting, strategic planning, go-to-market, OPEX management, R&D portfolio planning, NPI, executive scorecard, executive communications, business intelligence, and strategic initiatives, including M&A.
Prior to joining HP, Manzoor worked for accounting and professional services firm Ernst & Young in the assurance and advisory practice.
“I am honored and very excited as I start the next chapter in my career at Telenav,” Manzoor said. “This is an exciting time for Telenav, as the company evolves from a respected leader in in-car navigation services to a company whose goal is to create the world’s largest network of connected vehicles. To me, being a part of that is exciting and challenging.”
Manzoor joined Telenav on July 1 and is based at the company’s headquarters in Santa Clara, Calif.
