NEW YORK, February 8, 2024 — Blackbird.AI, the leader in protecting organizations from narrative attacks created by misinformation and disinformation, announces the appointment of Anna Osborn to Chief Revenue Officer (CRO) today. Osborn will lead Blackbird.AI’s global sales efforts from their headquarters in NYC as the company accelerates growth to protect Global 2000 companies and national security organizations.

Osborn is a seasoned leader with a proven track record of achieving remarkable success in the technology and services sectors. With experience across diverse organizations like Thomson Reuters and Kroll, she excels in navigating complex sales landscapes and motivating teams to engage directly with customers to forge strategic partnerships. At her most recent role as CRO at Exiger, Osborn spearheaded the company’s go-to-market transformation into a SaaS powerhouse, scaling the sales organization and driving explosive growth. While there, she was named one of the Top 25 FinTech Sales Executives of 2021. Her efforts contributed to Exiger's remarkable acquisition by Carlyle Group and Insight Partners at a valuation of $1.2 billion.

“Anna’s role at our company comes at a pivotal time as the World Economic Forum has named narrative attacks created by misinformation and disinformation the number one global risk in 2024,” said Wasim Khaled, CEO and co-founder of BlackBird.AI. “As we propel our mission forward, her strategic acumen, combined with her vast experience, will be instrumental in accelerating our growth, serving our customers, and achieving new heights of success for the company.”

Blackbird.AI enables a disruptive shift in enabling organizations to identify and protect against narrative attacks. The company’s Constellation Narrative Intelligence Platform enables organizations to detect, measure, gain context, and prioritize risk by understanding harmful narratives, the influence behind them, the networks they touch, the anomalous behavior that scales them, and the cohorts that connect them.

“Blackbird’s brilliant and passionate team works tirelessly to protect the world from the harmful damage created by unchecked narrative attacks,” said Anna Osborn, CRO at Blackbird.AI. “In an age where the information ecosystem is being weaponized by threat actors to deliberately cause harm to people, companies, and governments around the world, Blackbird.AI’s category-leading AI-powered technology platform, Constellation, is no longer a nice-to-have . . . It’s a need-to-have. I look forward to partnering with Wasim and the Blackbird.AI team to scale this incredible business and help protect our customers.”
