Record revenues drive management and product expansion.
ComplySci, one of the fastest-growing providers of regulatory technology for financial and professional services companies, announced the hiring of two new executives, Scott Roberts and Helen Lin, on the firm’s Go-to-Market team. They will further product and pipeline development, scale the business globally and drive future innovation.
“I am truly gratified to welcome this top-tier talent to ComplySci,” said CEO Jean-Marc Levy. “Scott and Helen bring proven talent, energy, and experience to our company’s leadership team, and their addition to this team underscores our commitment to our mission to deliver world class compliance software that ensures that our customers stay ahead of risk.”
These key hires are another step towards building upon and accelerating the momentum of 2018, when ComplySci grew at a record rate.
ComplySci works with more than 1,100 firms worldwide and, among other activities, monitors millions of trades, certifications and pre-clearance requests annually. In August 2018, ComplySci received a strategic investment from Vista Equity Partners’ Endeavor Fund which is focused on emerging high-growth companies that provide mission-critical software.
Scott Roberts joins the firm as Chief Revenue Officer.
“I am thrilled to be joining ComplySci’s leadership team and to build upon its unrivaled success,” said Scott. “ComplySci has been championing compliance through innovation for over 15 years with 1,100 institutions globally using our platform to stay ahead of risk today. I look forward to helping shape the future at ComplySci and to empowering thousands more Chief Compliance Officers and their teams in efforts to forge best-in-class cultures of compliance.”
Helen Lin will take on the role of Chief Product Officer.

We continue to invest heavily in our platform and solutions, and with the support and breadth of resources from Vista Equity Partners, I’m confident we will continue to provide Compliance teams with innovative best-in-class risk-management solutions.”
