Under the leadership of Mocana CEO James Isaacs, these additions to the executive team will build on the robust momentum Mocana has already achieved to drive the next phase of the company’s growth, as the industry’s focus on securing enterprise mobile applications and the Internet of Things gains new urgency.

She is a Certified Public Accountant and started her career in public accounting at KPMG. Prior to joining Mocana, Sandy served as CFO at Work4Labs. Sandy has served as vice president of finance at Respond Networks; vice president of finance and chief accounting officer at Danger, Inc., a mobile software-as-a-service company that was sold for $500 million to Microsoft; and CFO at Zong, a successful mobile payments company that was sold for $240 million to PayPal, where Sandy became CFO for PayPal Mobile.
