“We’re thrilled to welcome Arvind Bobra to the team,” said Jay McKee, CEO of Lessen. “He brings a level of expertise that will propel Lessen to the next level and we’re excited for the next step of our company’s evolution.”

Bobra is a veteran public company finance executive who has led through rapid growth and driven financial discipline and maturity — including setting, communicating and meeting financial guidance, driving profitability, and managing working capital, cash flow and treasury. As CFO, he will lead Lessen’s financial planning, accounting and forward-looking financial strategy.

“Lessen has executed stellar progress throughout the last few years from the company’s launch through its recent acquisition of SMS Assist, and I’m looking forward to joining such an impressive team at this exciting part of the journey,” said Bobra.

Bobra most recently served as senior vice president of finance at Axon Enterprise (Nasdaq: AXON), where he led financial planning and analysis, product finance, commercial finance, and treasury. In his eight-year tenure at Axon, Bobra served in a variety of finance roles, including investor relations, and built several critical functions and processes that helped scale the company’s revenue from $200 million to $1.2 billion, supported by a SaaS business that grew from less than $20 million to more than $500 million in annual recurring revenue.

Prior to Axon, Bobra spent five years as director of finance and business development at Ferroglobe PLC (formerly Globe Specialty Metals), where he played a critical role in the execution of the company’s growth strategy, including its IPO and four subsequent acquisitions. Bobra began his career at Lazard LLC in mergers and acquisitions. He holds a B.A. from the University of Chicago and an MBA from Columbia Business School.
