John is a proven finance leader and operating business partner, and I am thrilled to have him join the company as our new CFO to partner with me as we lead this next stage of growth,” said Chris Harrington, CEO of XANT. “John’s successful navigation of the IPO process for prior companies, and his leadership as CFO of multiple private and publicly traded technology organizations, provides us with the financial leadership to capitalize further on the significant market opportunity for XANT.”
