Jason Cherry joins Assent as chief financial officer (CFO) and a member of the company’s leadership team.
Based in Rhode Island, Cherry joins Assent with over 20 years of financial leadership experience spanning the manufacturing, aerospace, power and technology industries. Most recently, Cherry served as CFO of Telestream, a video production and automation service provider, and as CFO of Carousel Industries, an integrated cloud communications service provider. Before these roles, Cherry was the CFO across multiple business lines at General Electric Company (NASDAQ: GE).
“Jason’s extensive global experience across multiple industries, including the technology and manufacturing sectors, will be a significant asset to Assent and our customers. As a member of our Executive Leadership Team, Jason will contribute to Assent’s mission driving innovation to our customers and drive efficiencies across the organization as we fuel our next stage of growth,” said Andrew Waitman, Assent CEO.
The hire comes at a pivotal time for Assent as the company helps global manufacturers prepare for upcoming global supply chain reporting requirements. As manufacturers face unprecedented regulatory changes, digital tools, like Assent, are increasingly important to help manage growing risks to their business. The addition of Cherry’s leadership will support Assent’s continued growth to support the market demand for supply chain sustainability solutions.
“Assent’s purpose-driven mission, to help customers manage their complex supply chains in an ethical and sustainable way, truly resonates with me,” said Jason Cherry, Assent CFO. “I’m excited to join the great team at Assent and look forward to contributing to the next stage of the company’s growth.”
