New Hires, Doubling of Office Space and Employee Count Comes as a Result of the Company’s Successful Ecommerce Platform and Strategic Customer Counsel
FastSpring, a global leader in ecommerce management for digital businesses, announced new senior-level hires along with expanded office spaces in Santa Barbara and Amsterdam.
These developments are part of FastSpring’s broader vision to power billions in transactions with innovative commerce solutions that connect people globally in one digital economy, empowering customers to succeed in a world where global e-retail sales are expected to reach $4.48 trillion US dollars by 2021.
“We are experiencing a new wave of digital commerce which has changed the way people buy and shop across the globe,” says Chris Lueck, FastSpring CEO. “Our talented leadership bench and recent expansion across borders further validate our ability to meet evolving global customer needs, while providing digital commerce merchants with tools and teams that will handle everything from payments and subscription billing to sales tax and VAT compliance.”
New Offices in Santa Barbara and Amsterdam Expand Global Footprint
Headquartered in Santa Barbara, CA, in this year alone, FastSpring quickly expanded to all floors of their original office and recently moved into a bigger suite on E. Carrillo Street. They also hired eight new employees in their Amsterdam office, which required expanding to a bigger office through WeWork. This move ultimately doubled the company’s office space and overall employment count, further cementing their global footprint in the ecommerce and payments industries.
New CFO, VP of Revenue Operations and VP of Marketing Join FastSpring’s Leadership Bench
This year, FastSpring welcomed Sian Wang as CFO, Brian McTeague as VP of Revenue Operations and Sarah Bottorff as VP of Marketing to help grow their global presence and take the company’s technology and brand story to the next level.
Before joining FastSpring, Wang served as CFO at SaaS company, Steelhouse and brings his expertise in developing growth and M&A strategies to the team. McTeague joins FastSpring with experience in finance, analytics, and sales operations at companies like Websense and Cylance. His focus is on developing a world-class revenue engine to drive growth for FastSpring.
Bottorff comes on board with experience from Appfolio, CJ Affiliate by Conversant, and Johnson & Johnson to strengthen and optimize FastSpring’s cross-channel marketing, strategic planning and staff development to better reach current and prospective customers around the world.
In addition to these recent hires, FastSpring announced the appointment of Scott Herriman as SVP of Engineering earlier this year to lead and grow the engineering department as they continue to develop the FastSpring platform to meet the needs of today’s online digital sellers.
