Checkr is excited to welcome Naeem Ishaq as our new CFO! In this role, Naeem will lead our finance, facilities, and data operations teams and will be responsible for financial strategy and planning, corporate development, and optimizing Checkr’s financial performance for long-term growth.
Naeem brings nearly 20 years of leadership experience at companies like Circle, Salesforce, and Square (which he helped to lead through a successful IPO in 2015). He was one of the first 5% of employees at both Square and Salesforce and has a strong record of repeatedly scaling growth businesses from startup stage to global reach.
“I’m thrilled to bring my experience leading fast-growing companies to Checkr,” said Naeem. “I’m looking forward to accelerating the company’s already rapid growth and sustaining it over the long term—all in a way that aligns with our values and honors both our customers and candidates.”
Naeem joins Checkr at an important time for the company. In the last year alone, we’ve put down roots in Denver, raised $160M in series D funding, and doubled our team. As CFO, Naeem will build on this momentum and chart the course for Checkr’s next decade.
“Naeem’s valuable experience in building and scaling companies coupled with his commitment to ethical business made him the ideal choice for our new CFO,” states Daniel Yanisse, CEO and Co-founder. "I’m excited to work with him to help Checkr become even more efficient and drive long-term growth.”
