NEW YORK, July 30th, 2018 — Kryon, a leading provider of intelligent Robotic Process Automation (RPA) solutions, announced today that veteran business executive Richard French has joined the company as Chief Revenue Officer. French comes to Kryon from its competitor, Automation Anywhere, where he served as Chief Operating Officer. With 2018 proving to be an explosive year for Kryon in terms of technological innovation and geographic expansion, French will take a leading role in shaping the company’s future, including its long-term vision for revenue growth, strategic partnerships and overall profitability.

“With its business-value approach to automation through fresh, customer-focused RPA, Kryon is winning enterprise customers in both the private and public sectors. I strongly believe that Kryon is one of the only companies truly primed to make a difference in the RPA landscape,” French stated. “Kryon stands out for its understanding that RPA should not be complicated to use. Driven by this core principle, its cutting-edge solutions make automation easily accessible for all types of business users.”

With an impressive record of leadership roles at companies including Nokia and Oracle – as well as his tenure as COO of Automation Anywhere – French brings a well-honed understanding of growth strategies. He aims to put that knowledge to work for Kryon, helping the company build on its technological innovation to steepen its growth trajectory.
