Kirkland, Washington (PRWEB) May 27, 2014
MightyCall, the innovative Cloud-based contact center solution company that’s shaking up the Small and Medium Business communications market, today announced the appointment of Stijn Hendrikse as global Chief Marketing Officer and General Manager for its North American Operations, effective immediately.
Hendrikse, a former Microsoft executive and marketing leader with 20 years of experience in ERP, Microsoft, and Cloud software solutions, will lead all global marketing and the end-to-end North American business for MightyCall.
“I’m excited to start this new journey with MightyCall,” said Hendrikse, who was Acumatica’s global Sales & Marketing leader for the past three years. “After taking Acumatica, a leader in Cloud ERP software, from start-up to high growth in the past few years, I’m excited about the potential that MightyCall has.”
Hendrikse helped build the Acumatica brand and drove partner recruitment. Under his tenure, the Acumatica sales and marketing team also shipped two product launches, as well as partner summits and spring training events.
Said Serguei Beloussov, CEO of Acronis, Founder and Chairman of the Board of MightyCall, and Senior Partner of Runa Capital: “Stijn has successfully turned Acumatica from a tiny startup that develops ERP solutions to improve the productivity of SMBs into a global business worth tens of million of dollars. I am sure that in MightyCall he will be able to do even better.”
Added CEO Alex Minin: “Stijn brings years of executive leadership and marketing experience to our already strong team. Stijn’s arrival shows we’re serious about investing in the channel and building out a strong brand. With his appointment we are well-positioned to disrupt this $60-plus billion market.”
Minin, a telecom and telemarketing veteran and ex-Microsoft and SAP executive, was named CEO earlier this year just as MightyCall posted 150% year-over-year revenue growth for its cloud services. It now boasts data security and recovery leader Acronis as one of its biggest customers, and virtualization innovator Parallels as a technology partner. Big brand partnerships with Wix, Yola, and GoDaddy have further accelerated MightyCall’s growth in the SMB segment.
Hendrikse said: “I’ve been in the SaaS Software space for more than 10 years, leading teams for both Office 365 and Acumatica’s Cloud ERP Service, and I’ve never been part of a team that innovates and ships new solutions to real customer challenges faster than the MightyCall team.
“Our newest product, MightyCall React, was launched just a few months ago and already has thousands of paying customers who love being able to project big business presence without the big business price tag.
“Joining a company with such an amazing technology track record, and entering a market segment that has been so underserved by the big guys, is an opportunity that's too good to pass. I can’t wait to start telling MightyCall’s story and share our amazing potential with customers and partners.”
