PALO ALTO, Calif., Oct. 10, 2023 — SymphonyAI, a leader in predictive and generative AI enterprise SaaS, announced today that, as part of a strategic expansion of the board, it has appointed Blythe Masters as an independent member of the SymphonyAI board.

A financial services and financial technology visionary with more than 35 years of professional experience, Masters is a founding partner at Motive Partners, a private equity firm that specializes in financial technology and is renowned for bringing together leading investors, operators and innovators.
