Over my 25 years of working with many of these complex, global entities, I’ve grown to know the challenges that they face in optimizing their supply chains, technology and financial processes, while navigating through an ever changing regulatory environment. Today, it’s critical that organizations quickly deploy the right digital platform in this complex race to Net-Zero. Persefoni is the dominant climate-tech solution, and I can’t be more excited to join this world-class team,” said Denham.
