I’m excited to join the team as their first Chief Product Officer to continue the momentum they’ve built bringing high-value, high-fidelity solutions to the industry.” Golonka brings over 25 years of experience leading high performing finance teams through periods of rapid growth. At NetSPI he will focus on scaling the team and providing actionable business insights across the organization. Previously, Golonka was the CFO at PE-backed software company Prometheus Group. During his time there, he led them through nine acquisitions. Jay spent 18 years in public accounting and had finance leadership positions at two other high-growth software companies before joining Prometheus Group. Over his career, he has worked with organizations as they navigate the public company environment, including organizations going through the formal IPO process. “I was immediately aligned with NetSPI’s vision to expand the breadth and scale of their solutions,” said Golonka. “They’ve experienced incredible growth by providing impactful solutions to real problems in the industry – and show no signs of stopping. I look forward to being a contributing part of the journey.” This news follows NetSPI’s Board of Directors appointments of Scott Lundgren and John Spiliotis and a record year of organic growth.
