Khalili joins the research and development (R&D) and tax credit intelligence platform with 20 years of experience designing and delivering SaaS products in the governance, risk, compliance, and banking industries.
Prior to joining Boast, he served as Vice President of Product at Galvanize (now Diligent), a SaaS company that builds software for security, risk management, compliance, and audit professionals, where he led the product management and design teams.
Khalili played a key role as Galvanize pivoted from audit analytics and continuous monitoring services to offering a governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) platform.
“Shahed’s proven strategic expertise in maximizing the impact of industry-leading products and systems aligns perfectly with Boast’s vision,” said CEO Alok Tyagi.
“Having Shahed join allows us to accelerate our growth and product innovation strategy, and scale our business to better support our clients.”
As Boast’s CPO, Mr. Khalili will oversee all aspects of the company’s product management innovations and report directly to Tyagi.
With Boast, teams can consolidate all of their project tracking and financial systems into a single platform that optimizes their processes and maximizes their access to growth funding.
In December 2020, Boast announced $30 million in Series A funding, followed by a $100-million credit facility in early 2021 to provide customers with advanced funding against accrued R&D tax credits.
The company has since expanded its executive leadership while continuing to scale into new markets and showing strong revenue and logo growth.
