From The Information :

"The list of companies considered potential IPO candidates that don’t have CFO hires is long, and includes Tanium, Qualtrics, Cloudflare, Anaplan, Stitch Fix, Illumio, Gusto, Freshdesk and Jam City. Some of the largest private companies like Uber and Slack also have notably still not hired CFOs."

Of course, Anaplan went about a year without a CEO, before bringing on Frank Calderoni as CEO at the beginning of this year. Calderoni was once CFO of Cisco Systems, so perhaps the temporary lack of a CFO doesn't pain him. But Anaplan is expected to IPO soon, perhaps this year, so arrival of a new CFO should be forthcoming.

Calderoni's brother, Bob Calderoni, is chairman of the board at Anaplan, and was CEO of Ariba when it sold to SAP in 2012.

Philly guy and ex-iPipeline President ( also ex-Ariba and SAP) Paul Melchiorre was named Chief Revenue Officer of San Francisco-based Anaplan more than a year ago.

Actually founded in the UK, Anaplan is among a group of new wave cloud-based enterprise performance management platform vendors (Adaptive Insights and Host Analytics among the others) whose products enable enhanced cross-functional, dynamic business planning. It was valued at slightly more than $1 billion in its last round, and said it expected to exceed $100 million in revenue last year. SAP is a competitor.
