Software firm Symend has appointed Corey Scobie as its new Chief Technology Officer. He will take over from Dean Skelton, who had served as CTO since March 2018 and will transition to lead technical onboarding as the SVP of Client Services Engineering.

In his new role, Scobie will ensure that Symend’s technology operates at scale as the firm accelerates its expansion into new markets and verticals in 2021. Currently, the company has primarily pursued North America’s top-tier telecommunications and financial firms for its software as a service (SaaS) solution, which uses behavioral science and technology to engage at-risk customers with personalized outreach.

Scobie approaches his new task with an arsenal of experience. He has developed cutting-edge technologies from early-stage startup through to acquisition and built large-scale distributed systems for leading enterprises including Verizon and Bank of America.

Prior to joining Symend, Scobie was the CTO at Chef where he plotted the company’s technology roadmap and led the delivery of its enterprise automation portfolio, which served over 700 corporate customers including Facebook, Ford, General Motors, and Nordstrom.

In a statement provided to The Org, Scobie said, “Symend has an incredibly strong thesis on how to positively disrupt an industry that touches millions of consumers globally on a daily basis. I look forward to being part of this timely opportunity to positively transform the way businesses and consumers interact.” He went on to say, “Now is the time to ensure that Symend can hyperscale technology that the world truly needs, and the market demands.”

Scobie will join several other fresh faces at Symend, as the company recently named PehKeong Teh as its new Chief Product Officer and appointed Matt LaHood as SVP of Science and Analytics Services.
