To support our commitment to delivering a frictionless checkout experience with maximized payment conversions, we have hired three top executives to help online merchants reach this goal. With over 70 years of combined payments and technology experience, we welcome Scott Fitzgerald, Bob Botelle and Scott Conti.
With this hiring, we will now have an official tie for the number of Scotts and Bobs in the office – we have three of each. Who will win out? That remains to be seen…
All three executives have extensive experience in the payments space and will be based in the Waltham office. Scott Fitzgerald, a payments expert with a coffee addiction and nearly 20 years of experience, has been named Senior Vice President of Marketing. Previously an executive at ACI Worldwide, Fitzgerald will head marketing, lead generation, public relations and market research.
With over 30 years of customer support and operations experience in eCommerce and Payments, Bob Botelle, SVP of Customer Success, will ensure the successful onboarding of new merchants and customer satisfaction (and not just by wining and dining them with his expert knowledge of food and martinis). Botelle was previously SVP of Client Relations at Litle & Co/Vantiv, a pioneering payment processor.
Scott Conti brings more than 20 years of payments and technology knowledge to BlueSnap to lead their sales efforts and help eCommerce merchants capture more sales with BlueSnap’s newly launched Powered Buy Platform. Conti spent 8 years at Litle & Co/Vantiv and was SVP of Direct Sales and relationship management at Merchant e-Solutions. He also has sang the national anthem at Fenway Park (with 37,000 other people, of course), and will only allow people as honorary members of the sales team if they’re Patriots fans.
“Scott, Bob & Scott have the perfect blend of payments expertise and proven leadership,” said our CEO, Ralph Dangelmaier. “They understand our mission to break down the borders of eCommerce and help merchants sell more effectively. We know that they can amplify our message and accelerate our growth.”
Fitzgerald, Botelle and Conti join our team during a period of rapid expansion, fueled by our $50 million growth equity round last year. In addition to hiring new executives, we recently announced the launch of the Powered Buy Platform, which makes online checkout frictionless for consumers and integration to our platform simple for eCommerce merchants.We have also just announced the launch of our Checkout Conversion Index, which is sponsored by PYMNTS.com. We studied over 650 ecommerce sites to see what causes friction at checkout so that you can make the adjustments to your eCommerce site and see your sales grow.
