Brightflag Bolsters Executive Team by Adding VP of People & VP of Finance
NEW YORK — September 28, 2021 — Brightflag, the AI-powered legal operations management platform, today announced the appointments of Ingrid Wallace as Vice President of People and Michael Scarpelli as Vice President of Finance. These additions respectively mark the third and fourth executive hires made by Brightflag since the company’s $28 million investment round in December 2020.
Wallace brings more than 15 years of human resource management expertise in both operator and consultant roles. Prior to joining Brightflag, she was the Vice President of Organization Development at the AI-driven customer data platform Boxever prior to its acquisition by Sitecore.
“I look forward to preserving and enhancing the inclusive and collaborative culture that attracted me to Brightflag as we continue to rapidly scale the business,” said Wallace. “Brightflag has already adapted incredibly well as a global team operating in a remote-first work environment, and I’m excited to help shape our next chapter by hiring more top-tier talent and empowering them to do their best work.”
After starting his career at PwC, Scarpelli has spent the last 15 years building and leading finance teams within companies in the software, technology, and entertainment industries. His most recent experience has been focused in the compliance, treasury, and risk management software space, including roles as Head of Finance at ComplySci (a K1 Investment Management, Vista Equity Partners and Edison Partners portfolio company) and as Senior Vice President of Finance at venture-backed Reval in the periods leading up to and through the company’s acquisition by ION.
“I’m eager for the opportunity to join and grow a company that’s transforming the habits and perceptions of an entire business function,” said Scarpelli. “I’m excited to build on the strong foundations within Brightflag and help introduce valuable innovations to the kinds of legal teams I’ve worked so closely with throughout my career.”
