NEW YORK, January 11, 2021 – VTEX, a multinational tech company that provides a global, fully integrated, end-to-end commerce solution, announced today three key hires and plans to double its U.S. team in 2021.
In addition to selecting its chief marketing officer, VP of engineering and VP of sales, VTEX has grown its U.S.-based team to 50 members since opening a Manhattan office in 2020. The company’s investment in expanding its U.S. team will support the rapidly growing number of customers and partners in North America.
Last year, VTEX announced key customer wins across B2B and B2C brands such as AB InBev, Stanley Black & Decker, bisco industries, St. Croix and more.
The ecommerce and marketplace platform heavily invested in building its customer success team along with key hires and processes. As a result:
VTEX was also elevated to the ‘Visionary’ category on Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Digital Commerce as well as named to the ‘Leader’ category on IDC MarketScape’s Worldwide B2C Digital Commerce Platforms 2020 Vendor Assessment. This is all on top of VTEX’s two funding rounds in the last 10 months which totaled $365 million, elevating it to the coveted tech unicorn status with a $1.7 billion valuation.
“VTEX has grown astronomically in 2020, and we want to ensure we have a team large and robust enough to support our continued growth,” said Amit Shah, U.S. general manager and chief strategy officer at VTEX. “As we win more global customers and earn more industry recognition, we need to invest more in our own people. Doubling our team next year will enable us to support our customers even more and connect with prospects more easily.”
VTEX’s latest key hires are:
“I’m excited to be joining a team that has such immense potential for growth,” said Blank. “I have a strong background in ecommerce having worked at Tommy Hilfiger for a few years, so I know what it’s like to be in our customers’ shoes, and I’m confident I can support them in their search for the ecommerce and marketplace platform that’s best for them.”
