Paciolan appoints Boren as CFO

Paciolan, the ticketing, fundraising, marketing and analytics solution firm, has appointed Kimberly Boren as its new chief financial officer.

Boren will lead all finance and accounting teams at the college sports specialist, serving as the financial liaison with parent company Learfield, along with other divisions within the organisation.

Paciolan, formerly Spectra’s Ticketing & Fan Engagement division, enables the sale of more than 120 million tickets per year by powering over 120 college athletic programmes, more than 100 professional sports and arenas organisations, 75 performing arts venues, and several regional ticketing partners who serve hundreds of venues.

“We are excited to welcome Kim Boren to our team as chief financial officer, where she will play a key role in the financial future of Paciolan,” said Kim Damron, president and chief executive of Paciolan.

“She has a deep breadth and history of executive financial leadership and will leverage that experience to help lead our team to continued success.”

Boren joins Paciolan from AutoWeb, where she held the CFO position since April 2015. Under her leadership, AutoWeb generated record revenues in 2016, increasing 18 per cent year-over-year.

In addition, she was instrumental in completing the company’s acquisitions of Dealix and AutoWeb, bringing in important strategic assets, and completing the sale of AutoWeb’s specialty finance leads product in early 2017.

As CFO, Boren will guide forecasting and budgeting for the company and will oversee Paciolan’s legal team to manage contracts and compliance.

“I can’t imagine a more exciting time to join Paciolan and the Learfield family of companies,” said Boren.

“Kim Damron and the team at Paciolan have a focus on driving revenue for clients and maintaining a commitment to excellence. Their culture of enthusiastic service with an emphasis on growth resonates with me and I’m thrilled to be part of the family.”
