I have tremendous confidence in Paul’s ability to help KORE continue its exciting growth trajectory, and he will undoubtedly be a strong candidate for the permanent job.”
“My mandate as CFO was to help take the company public, and I enjoyed the journey and challenges of doing so with our team,” says Pamnani. “As Romil and I discussed my personal and professional goals as well as the company’s evolving needs, we determined that now is a logical point to transition to the next phase of financial leadership. KORE is very well positioned for growth, and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work alongside a world-class team under Romil’s strong leadership.”
