Ikar previously served as CEO of Equalweb, a startup company focused on accessibility solutions, and directed its sales growth to more than $3 million in 2 years. He also led its international business development initiatives, securing enterprise clients across Europe, the USA, and Brazil.
Ikar brings more than a decade of marketing and sales experience to UserWay, including successful business deals with global brands like Coca-Cola, Subaru, Ness, Jaguar, Pizza Hut, Manpower, Fiverr, Estee Lauder, Groupon and Kimberly Clark.
“UserWay began as a free web accessibility plugin,” said Allon Mason, founder and UserWay CEO. “Fast-forward to today, and UserWay offers a full suite of solutions that ensures accessibility and compliance for SMBs and Fortune 500 companies alike, providing a barrier-free experience for people with disabilities. This is the perfect time for Adam to bring his wealth of experience in building enterprise relationships to UserWay.”
This appointment comes during a period of explosive growth at UserWay. Its accessibility widget has been installed on more than 1 million websites around the world, and revenue has increased by 400% annually over the past 12 months, with a 3x growth in staff in just the last twelve months.
“I wanted to join UserWay as soon as I learned that over 50 percent of its employees are engineers,” Ikar said. “It’s truly a tech company and I don’t believe anyone is better-positioned to take advantage of the opportunities in this space. My priority is to ensure UserWay continues its unparalleled growth without sacrificing its personal approach to client relationships.”
