As CAO, Dharti’s duties will include re-engineering and streamlining operations to scale and support Moloco’s growing business, including implementing policies and automating processes and systems. She will report directly to CFO Brandon Maultasch and work with the senior management and leadership team to build an organization-wide financial discipline and enable strong financial performance.
“I’m thrilled to be part of an innovative company that creates value for its customers through a truly unique machine learning platform,” said Dharti Patel. “I'm also excited to bring my past experience to Moloco to help them navigate their next phase of growth.”
Dharti’s appointment comes at a crucial time in Moloco’s journey as the company experiences historically high momentum. Moloco recently achieved its seventh consecutive profitable quarter and surpassed $100 million in annual net revenue.
