London, UK / New York, USA 21 March 2024 - Robin AI, the AI-powered legal copilot, today announces the appointment of Scott Casey as Chief Financial Officer. The strategic hiring follows the recent completion of a $26 million Series B funding round, positioning Robin AI to lead the fast growing legal AI sector.

Scott Casey brings an impressive track record of over 30 years in financial leadership, with significant expertise in helping organizations establish the right financial systems and processes to successfully scale. Prior to joining Robin AI, he built and led finance and operations at BigID as the company scaled from its Series A funding round through to a Series E unicorn valuation.

During his career, Casey held pivotal roles such as VP of Finance at MySpace during its hyper-growth phase and played a key role in establishing the financial planning and analysis (FP&A) function at Zynga before the company went public. More recently, Scott has led the finance function for companies including Tumblr, PlaceIQ, Curalate and BigID, an AI-powered data security company.

Scott's appointment comes on the heels of Robin AI's recent $26 million funding round, led by Temasek and featuring participation from QuantumLight, Plural, and AFG Partners. This investment positions Robin AI to intensify its efforts in harnessing the vast potential of AI within the legal sector, building upon the already strong momentum it has with customers for its AI-powered copilot.

Richard Robinson, CEO, and co-founder of Robin AI said, "No one understands the intricacies of scaling a business better than Scott. His extensive talent and experience make him an invaluable addition to our leadership team."

Commenting on his new role, Scott Casey stated, "Robin AI possesses a unique blend of vision and industry-leading innovation, and it is poised to lead the global market in AI-driven legal services. I am thrilled to be part of the team and look forward to supporting their journey to the next level."
