August 31, 2021 | PRNewswire | JACKSONVILLE, Fla. and SAN FRANCISCO — Azimuth GRC, Inc., the Jacksonville-based regulatory compliance software platform, announced today that it has secured Series A financing. Mosaik Partners, a San Francisco-based venture capital firm focused on financial technology, led the round which included other new and existing investors. The new funds will be used to hire additional talent, further enhance the platform, and expand sales and marketing efforts. Azimuth GRC also announced additions to the executive management team, including Stephen Garrett as Chief Technology Officer and Kimberly Redd as Vice President, Product Management.
“Azimuth GRC’s technology helps financial institutions evaluate adherence to regulations and automate compliance testing, which has historically been a costly, lengthy and manual process,” said Rohin Tagra, Founder and CEO at Azimuth GRC. “Mosaik is the perfect partner for us as we embark on our next phase of growth, bringing significant operating and advisory expertise, in addition to a broad network of industry contacts. This new capital will enable us to accelerate growth by adding talent to support our rapidly growing customer base.”
Tagra has more than 20 years of experience in financial services as an executive with Bank of America, Black Knight Financial Services, and JPMorgan Chase. He most recently served as a Managing Director at JPMorgan Chase in the Mortgage and Oversight & Controls Divisions and was responsible for leading the company through its operational compliance regulatory efforts and settlements process following the financial crisis. Tagra founded Azimuth GRC in 2017 to address the industry-wide problem of automating regulatory compliance.
“We are excited to partner with Rohin as his experience and expertise could not be a better fit for this venture,” said Miles Kilburn, Co-Founder and Managing Partner at Mosaik. “Azimuth GRC is addressing a very real pain point for banks, mortgage providers and others across the financial services ecosystem. The opportunity here is enormous, particularly as the regulatory environment becomes more complex over time, with state and federal authorities applying different sets of rules across each jurisdiction.”
In conjunction with this round, John Katzenmeyer will join Azimuth GRC’s Board of Directors. Katzenmeyer, Partner at Mosaik Partners, brings nearly 25 years of financial technology advisory experience.
