Ping Identity Appoints Two Leaders to Executive Team to Support Accelerated Global Growth


DENVER — November 14, 2016

Ping Identity®, the leader in Identity Defined Security, today announced the appointment of Raj Dani as Chief Financial Officer, and Aaron LaPoint as Chief Human Resources Officer. Both are based in Denver and report to Andre Durand, Ping’s Chief Executive Officer. Their experience in rapidly growing enterprise companies greatly benefits Ping as the company continues to accelerate its growth beyond $100 million in annual recurring revenue.

Mr. Dani brings more than 24 years of corporate finance, M&A, and both public and private company experience to Ping. Dani joins Ping from AVI-SPL, a Tampa, Florida-based systems integration firm where, as CFO, he led the successful sale of the company. Prior to AVI-SPL, he held leadership financial positions at Flextronics, Jabil Circuit and TeleTech.

Mr. LaPoint joins Ping as Chief Human Resources Officer at a key point in Ping’s growth. The company will look to strategically leverage human resources to hire and develop extraordinary talent to drive Ping’s mission and vision. LaPoint spent more than nine years at Dish Network, where he was most recently responsible for enterprise total rewards, talent acquisition, talent development and HR strategy for 10,000 employees in sales, customer service and corporate functions. Dish is a Fortune 250 company with nearly 20,000 employees and $15 billion in revenue.

“With Raj and Aaron joining Ping, I have the team in place to accelerate our strategy of capturing the Identity market. Focused investments and execution, commitment to innovation and ability to hire the best talent are key to our sustained growth,” Durand said. “I’m also excited by the immediate impact of adding UnboundID to our team. Customer Identity and Access Management is clearly a focus for the enterprise, and it’s all about delivering an exceptional user experience without compromising security.”

Ping delivered a record-breaking third quarter, marked by rapid integration of the UnboundID team and technology into the combined company. The company secured notable wins at a top ten home and automotive insurance provider and a leading global professional services firm, as well as combined deals with UnboundID, including at a global publishing giant.
