Three Strategic Financial Executives Join Forces to Serve Indiana Tech Ecosystem

INDIANAPOLIS, June 16, 2020 – LiftBridge CXO, LLC (“LiftBridge CXO”), a consulting firm that scales on-demand services to fit the needs of growing tech companies, is pleased to announce its new partnership of three finance leaders in the tech community: Kathy Kinder, Ashley Vukovits and Kay Whitaker. These three influential advisors are familiar names in the Indiana technology community. The three former CFOs have guided multiple tech startups, scaleups and public companies to the next level of success.

“I founded LiftBridge CXO when former colleagues asked me to help them avoid pitfalls, prepare for funding and support growth as they launched new tech companies,” stated Kathy Kinder. “The demand has swelled in the current economic environment. Now more than ever, entrepreneurs want to work with experienced leaders who have been CFOs at the stage they are in. LiftBridge CXO will be a powerhouse for helping tech companies grow strategically, financially and effectively. The three of us will operate as Managing Directors.”

“I am really excited to work with Kathy and Kay,” said Ashley Vukovits. “I believe our backgrounds complement each other, and ultimately we will provide a breadth of advice and service to clients that is not easily replicated. As the former CFO of Interactive Intelligence, Inc., a multi-million-dollar technology company, I led Interactive Intelligence’s $1.4 billion exit to Genesys. Additionally, I have spent the last three years offering fractional CFO consulting services to several small technology companies in Indianapolis. I believe teaming with Kathy and Kay will enable us to do even more for the startup and scaleup tech companies locally, if not nationally.”

Kay Whitaker shared: “I am delighted to join two women I consider the leading CFOs in the local tech ecosystem. Our combined experience with mergers and acquisitions, private equity, and taking companies from pre-seed to public fills a gap. I believe our unique perspectives will strengthen our clients, giving them an edge in their growth strategy.”

Kinder wants tech entrepreneurs to consider them as unbiased trusted advisors, wingmen of sorts, who will use their experiences to help founders and CEOs take tech companies to the next level.

To reflect this new partnership, the group has updated the company website. Please visit LiftBridge CXO to view clients and services.
