Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) December 05, 2017
Rightpoint, an independent customer experience agency, today announced that Vanessa Rollings has joined as its Chief Financial Officer (CFO). Rollings is a strategic addition to Rightpoint, joining on the heels of Rightpoint’s recent acquisition of mobile innovation and emerging technologies firm, Raizlabs, and adding to the growing list of industry leaders who are joining the agency.
Rollings’ extensive M&A experience will play a key role in providing analytical insight and perspective during post-merger activities including integration of 400 employees across its nine U.S. offices, helping Rightpoint gain solid footing as an innovative national customer experience solutions provider.
“Vanessa brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in the finance arena including significant work with high-growth, middle market companies as well as tech startups, e-commerce and retail,” said Brad Schneider, co-founder and co-CEO of Rightpoint. “As we continue to pursue opportunities to further expand and invest in our business, Vanessa’s unique blend of financial acumen and broad industry knowledge will be an indispensable asset toward achieving our goals.”
Rollings has more than 20 years of professional finance experience in all aspects of financial management, investment banking, accounting, and auditing. Most recently, she served as CFO and managing director at venture capital firm, Sandbox Industries, where she led finance and accounting, treasury, and investor relations. She has also worked with global, high-profile companies including William Blair & Company, Kraft Foods and Arthur Andersen.
Rollings will be based out of Rightpoint’s Chicago headquarters, and will serve as a key member of its executive leadership team.
“I have watched Rightpoint earn a tremendous amount of respect and achieve significant growth over the past 10 years. Now, I am delighted to be a part of the leadership team that has brought the agency to this point, and will continue to shape its future,” said Rollings. “The trajectory of the agency, as well as its incredibly strong culture, made the opportunity to be Rightpoint’s CFO one that I could not pass up.”
