In his role as VP Global Sales at Forrester, Tijs led a global sales operation across three continents and was responsible for the company’s largest and most strategic accounts. As Chief Revenue Officer at California-based Impact, he managed the company’s strategic shift to a pure SaaS model, which enabled the business to grow 1200% in four years and become the global category leader in its space. As Button CRO Tijs accelerated the mobile commerce platform’s growth to over 400% during his two years at the company.
Tijs joins Uberall following a very challenging 2020, during which many of Uberall’s customers and partners in retail, hospitality, tourism and other industries struggled with a dramatically different B2C and B2B landscape. Despite these unprecedented challenges, Uberall was still able to grow 30% YoY. The company is now doubling-down and investing aggressively for the next phase of growth, as economies and markets are set for a strong recovery later this year.
