E-commerce management service provider for digital businesses FastSpring announced new senior-level hires along with expanded office spaces in Santa Barbara and Amsterdam.
Headquartered in Santa Barbara, California, FastSpring recently moved into a bigger suite on E. Carrillo Street. The company also hired 8 new employees in their Amsterdam office, which required expanding to a bigger office through WeWork. This has doubled the company’s office space and overall employment count, further cementing their global footprint in the e-commerce and payments industries.
FastSpring welcomed Sian Wang as their new Chief Financial Officer. Wang previously served as Chief Financial Officer at SaaS-focused company, Steelhouse, and brings on board his expertise in developing growth and M&A strategies.
FastSpring also hired Brian McTeague as their new Vice President 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. McTeague joins FastSpring with experience in finance, analytics, and sales operations at companies such as Websense and Cylance. Bottorff comes with experience from Appfolio, CJ Affiliate by Conversant, and Johnson & Johnson.
In addition to these hires, the company also appointed Scott Herriman as Senior Vice President of Engineering earlier this year, to lead and grow their engineering department as they continue to develop the FastSpring platform to meet the needs of today’s online digital sellers.
The new team members and expanded office space are in line with FastSpring’s vision to power billions in transactions with innovative commerce solutions that connect people globally in one digital economy.
“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.”
