Canvas, the global leader in mobile apps for businesses, today announced that Marc Rubin has joined the company as Chief Financial Officer.

Rubin brings to Canvas more than 20 years of financial and operational management experience, with a proven track record guiding startups and technology companies through aggressive growth and expansion, including many rounds of venture capital financings. Marc has served as Chief Financial Officer and Chief Accounting Officer at several well-known and successful fast growth technology companies in the Mid-Atlantic region, including Sequoia Software (IPO; Acquired by Citrix), Sourcefire (IPO; Acquired by Cisco), and Rovion (Acquired by Gannett). Prior to working with emerging businesses, Marc worked in finance and accounting management positions at Black & Decker and London Fog.

“Marc is uniquely adept at providing financial guidance that propels growing businesses through the corporate life cycle – from startup, through capital raises, hyper-growth, IPO and acquisitions. This is a result of Marc’s ability to not only perform traditional CFO functions, but also to provide the cross-functional support fast growth companies such as Canvas benefit immensely from, such as day-to-day operations, HR and marketing,” said James Quigley, co-founder and chief executive officer. “We feel extremely fortunate to have Marc as a part of our management team, and Canvas will benefit greatly from his insights and expertise.”

Most recently, Marc was the founding partner of ArcPoint Partners, providing outsourced finance, accounting, and HR services to tech startups across New York, Silicon Valley, and the Mid-Atlantic. One of these clients was Canvas, and it was during this outsourced relationship that Marc observed Canvas's growth and recognized the opportunity to become a more integral part of the company's future.

“Canvas possesses all the elements of a company poised to dominate its market for years to come, including a stellar management team, leadership in an exploding mobile enterprise market, and a diverse customer base,” adds Rubin. “The more I worked with Canvas over the past several months, the more impressed I became, and believe the sky is the limit for the company going forward.”
