Prior to working at HP, Dahlgren held executive roles at Lexmark International, AT&T and NCR.

Founded in 2007, Kony enables banks to design, develop, and visualize device-agnostic applications deployed across multiple channels. Last month, the company entered into a strategic partnership with Diebold Nixdorf in which Diebold Nixdorf white-labeled Kony’s mobile application suite, branding it DN Mobile. As part of the agreement, Diebold Nixdorf also acquired a minority equity stake in Kony. Earlier this year, Kony launched AppVantage to help organizations quickly develop customizable mobile apps from pre-packaged components. At FinovateFall 2011, the company debuted a commercial banking app.
