David Lapter, formerly of Fab.com and MakeSpace, is moving on to Dashlane to serve as chief financial officer.

Dashlane is a password management service that helps users keep track of their passwords, as well as helping with safe online transactions through a Dashlane digital wallet.

Lapter started out his career at a boutique strategy firm called Parthenon, where he served for nearly four years. He then went on to work as an associate at Upfront Ventures, where he again held the position for almost four years.

From there, Lapter began his career as CFO for multiple companies, such as CTSpace, KickApps, and Fab.com.

He spent two-and-a-half years at Fab.com and left after the company began to experience turbulence due to too-rapid growth. In June 2014, Lapter went to Makespace as CFO, and between that and his start now at Dashlane he was an advisor to TruOptic.

Dashlane has more than 4 million users, and Lapter’s experience as a financial officer should help the company (which has raised a total of $30 million in funding) to grow further.
