Former Procore and Salesforce executive Ani Abrahamian has joined the leadership team at smart building company Infogrid as its new CTO and interim CPO

As new CTO and interim CPO, Abrahamian will oversee Infogrid’s tech function, as well as looking to strengthen its product portfolio of smart technologies.

Abrahamian joins Infogrid following three and a half years as senior vice-president of engineering at Procore Technologies, leading global engineering efforts to support scale and growth up to the company’s IPO in 2021.

Prior to this, she held various leadership roles at Salesforce over the course of 13 years, playing a key role in developing and scaling the business’s mobile applications and products.

“I couldn’t have found a better fit than Infogrid, with its mission to make the built environment more sustainable. As a builder by nature, scaling and nurturing engineering organisations is what really excites me, so I am looking forward to driving the next phase of Infogrid’s technology evolution and helping to change the face of building intelligence.”

William Cowell de Gruchy, CEO of Infogrid, commented: “Ani joins our fantastic team at a very exciting time for Infogrid as we look to place intelligence at the forefront of smart building technology and accelerate sustainability in the built environment across the globe.

“Ani’s extensive experience in scaling leading players in the technology sector will be invaluable to shape our solutions and support our next stage of growth as part of our mission to make every building healthy, efficient and sustainable.

“She is an inspirational leader, and we look forward to benefiting from the digital prowess Ani will bring to our technology and product teams.”
