Tehseen Dahya has been appointed as Senior Vice President, North America and as a member of the Executive Team at Basware. He reports to Vesa Tykkyläinen, CEO, Basware Corporation.

Dahya will provide further leadership and strategic and operational direction to support the company's accelerated growth plans throughout North America, which is one of Basware's key markets. He has spent almost two decades working in the supply chain and purchase-to-pay arenas. Prior to Basware, Dahya was the co-founder and CEO of Verian, a leading cloud-based solution provider that Basware acquired in April 2016.

The appointment of Tehseen to Basware's Executive Team and the creation of an SVP role for North America reflects the importance that we attribute to this market. Tehseen's expertise and in-depth insight into the purchase-to-pay market, and e-procurement in particular, will be invaluable as we expand Basware's market position in the US", says Vesa Tykkyläinen, CEO, Basware Corporation.
