Robotics process automation software firm Automation Anywhere has appointed Yousuf Khan as its first CIO.

In his new role, Khan will be responsible for leading the vision, strategy and operations of the company’s IT (information technology) department globally, the San Jose, California-based company said in a statement.

He will also provide strategic IT leadership and direction for all business units and functions to deliver technology solutions that power innovation and open rational excellence throughout the organisation.

“Yousuf Khan is a creative and innovative leader, and his skills complement the talents of our IT leadership team as we build the systems and processes to support our vision of the digital workforce and building a robust enterprise business,” said Clyde Hosein, CFO, Automation Anywhere. 

Prior to the new role, Khan served as CIO and vice president of customer success at Moveworks. He was also CIO at Pure Storage, Qualys and Hult International Business School.

“In a world of rapidly-changing technology, his industry knowledge, leadership and vision will play a fundamental role at Automation Anywhere as we continue to work towards our goal of helping organisations use automation to unchain human potential,” added Hosein.

Khan holds a bachelor of science in business management from Kings College, London.

Last year in December, Automation Anywhere had signed a memorandum of understanding with the Chennai-based non-profit organisation ICT Academy to offer a range of reskilling courses to students. In November, it also announced that it would deploy its bots to help UK-based motor racing team McLaren Racing streamline its business operations. 

Founded in 2003, Automation Anywhere is a developer of RPA (robotic process automation) software. The company's product, Automation Anywhere Enterprise, serves enterprises looking to deploy a digital workforce composed of software bots that complete business processes.
