“Sirion is years ahead of the industry in terms of its AI technology as well as its advanced functionality across the complete contracting lifecycle,” said Yarra. “My goal is to build the infrastructure, people, and processes, to translate this advantage into value for our customers.”
Yarra noted that his vision is to improve the alignment between customer objectives and product strategy. He plans to actively expand the team across multiple areas of the business, including Customer Success, Implementation, Engineering, and Learning & Development.
