Cognia, a leader in cloud-based communications archiving and analytics, today announced that Swisscom Investment Director, Pär Lange, has joined its Advisory Board.

Stewart Holness, CEO of Cognia, says: “We are delighted to welcome Pär. His experience in bringing communications-technology innovations to market will help us immensely.”

Working with telco partners in North America, Asia and Europe, it helps over 60 banks and financial institutions meet regulatory requirements, including US Dodd Frank and EU MiFID.

Holness adds: “Businesses, large and small, are looking for ways to bring mobile and other communications into their core processes – compliance-monitoring and quality assurance are just two examples. Delivering simple scalable cloud solutions for this, on an international level, presents challenges for Cognia and our telco partners. Pär’s industry insights will help shape our strategy.”

As Investment Director at Swisscom, Pär oversees a portfolio of leading-edge technologies, including Cognia, in which Swisscom took a stake in 2015. Prior to joining Swisscom, Pär co-founded a Swedish mobile operator, which was awarded one of four 3G licenses in Sweden. He currently serves on the boards of Vilant OY, Key Lemon, Actlight and Quantenna Inc (Observer).

Pär Lange, commented: “Cognia is providing precisely the value-added services that carriers need to meet their customers’ increasingly sophisticated multi-channel communication needs. I am excited to be helping Cognia as it continues to grow around the world.”
