Regtech and compliance provider Smarsh announced the appointment of Vinay Mehta as its Chief Technology Officer to lead the firm’s global engineering organization by managing engineering, architecture, product development and hosting, as the firm continues to expand its executive team.

Smarsh manages billions of messages per month across over 100 digital communications channels, including voice, internet, email, social media and instant messaging for over 6,500 customers globally, including the top 10 banks in the world. Mehta will participate in the development and delivery of communications intelligence and risk management technology for highly regulated financial services companies including financial institutions, broker-dealers, RIAs and other wealth management firms.

Smarsh’s CEO Kim Crawford Goodman said, “[Mehta] has a proven track record as a collaborator, leader and coach in the financial and technology fields globally and is a great addition to the C-suite as Smarsh continues to grow and achieve scale. Our customers’ communications data is one of their most valuable assets. Vinay is the right person to align our engineering efforts to solve the challenges facing our diverse customer base, which range from single-office broker-dealers to investment advisories to the world’s largest banks.”

Prior to Smarsh, Mehta served at cxLoyalty as Chief Technology and Information Officer for over eight years. Before that, he was Chief Information Officer at Paycor, and worked at Convergys (now part of Concentrix) as SVP of Product Management and Development and then SVP of Global Development and Delivery.

“I am honored to join Smarsh as its new CTO and am eager to serve as the bridge by which our engineers enable the business to achieve its strategic goal of maximizing value to customers,” said Mehta. “Wealth management and financial services is an exciting space with unique challenges due to the rapid pace of change in technology and regulations. Smarsh is committed to developing leading-edge solutions that meet those challenges.”

Smarsh has aggressively expanded its leadership bench in the past year. In March, Smarsh hired Sheldon Cummings as General Manager of its corporate business unit supporting RIAs and independent broker-dealers. In November 2022, the firm hired Mike Cagle as Chief Financial Officer and Leander LeSure as Chief People and Diversity Officer. In June 2022, Smarsh announced the appointment of Goodman as CEO, who won a WSR Pathfinder Award for Black CEO of the Year in February of this year.
