Fashion e-commerce platform Zilingo today announced the appointment of James Perry as its first CFO.
Perry is a former Managing Director and Head of Technology Investment Banking for Asia Pacific at Citigroup with over 20 years of experience in corporate finance.
According to a press statement, he has helped clients raise over US$150 billion (including 40 IPOs in the US and Hong Kong) and advised technology companies on over US$80 billion in M&A transactions across six continents.
“I’m excited to join the Zilingo team. I have seen hundreds of technology companies over my years in banking, Zilingo stands out as an innovator bringing technology and transparency to an industry that has changed little since the industrial revolution. Zilingo is led by one of the most energetic and visionary teams I’ve come across and I look forward to being a part of this journey,” Perry said.
Zilingo was founded in 2015 by Ankiti Bose and Dhruv Kapoor.
It claimed to have served over 50,000 merchants and 4,000 factories across 17 countries.
Earlier this year, Zilingo has closed a US$226 million Series D funding round to support its expansion to the Philippines, Indonesia, and Australia.
The funding round included the participation of Temasek, Sequoia Capital India, Burda Principal Investments, Sofina (Belgium), and EDBI.
