Brenton Keath Joins ONI as Vice President of Finance

SAN DIEGO, November 2, 2023
ONI is pleased to introduce our latest addition to the team, Brenton Keath, who is joining our leadership group in the role of Vice President of Finance.

Brenton brings a wealth of experience as a seasoned leader in global organizations, having served as a strategic finance executive and as a hands-on CFO & COO. He initiated his career at PwC, spending 4.5 years in their M&A and audit division in Australia. Subsequently, he relocated to Tokyo, where he spent 6 years with KPMG as a Senior Transactions Manager in their global strategic M&A function. His journey led him to Rakuten, where he started as GM, leading their Global M&A Integration team and eventually becoming the VP of M&A Integration, which resulted in his move to San Diego, California, where he currently resides. During his 4-year tenure at Rakuten, he oversaw M&A integrations for 15+ projects, overseeing strategic finance, due diligence, financial operations, budgeting, governance and controls, and reconciliations.

Following his time at Rakuten, he assumed the role of VP Finance & Business Transformation at Rakuten Commerce, where he was responsible for overseeing a budget of over $100 million, developing a 10-year plan, creating KPIs, and shaping the business strategy. In 2019, Brenton was personally invited by the Founder & CEO of Rakuten to join a biotech start-up focused on cancer therapeutic development as its CFO & COO, partially funded by the CEO himself. In this role, Brenton led a comprehensive overhaul and redefinition of the company’s financial strategy, budgeting, reporting, and processes. He chaired their strategic investment committee, established a company-wide OKR process, executed two M&A deals (one asset acquisition and one stock purchase), and successfully raised $276 million through a Series C-1 and Series D round.

We are thrilled to have Brenton on board, and we look forward to his valuable contributions to our team and organization.
