A pair of tech-related firms announced the hiring of two prominent executives today.
Vancouver online and showroom-based menswear retailer Indochino Inc. announced that former Kit and Ace and Lululemon executive Clay Haeber would be joining the company as vice president of technology, while Portland, Oregon-based marketing platform developer Act-On Software revealed that former Autodesk executive Tom Cameron had been appointed as the company’s chief revenue officer.
In his new position with Indochino, Haeber will be responsible for enhancing the company’s customer experience through technology, in addition to further developing its technical operations and expansion plans.
During his most recent position as head of IT at Kit and Ace, an apparel startup backed by Lululemon founder Chip Wilson (and started by Wilson’s wife and son), Haeber was responsible for developing the “technical cashmere” retailer’s ecommerce and web platforms, while as Lululemon’s director of technical infrastructure, he established the world-famous yoga wear retailer’s ecommerce program.
Act-On, which develops automated marketing software for mid-sized businesses, posted a statement on its website that Cameron’s appointment was part of a larger effort to prepare the business for its next phase of growth.
A SaaS sales veteran with more than 20 years of global experience in both enterprises and startups, Cameron’s twin goals will be to ensure that Act-On’s 3000-plus existing subscribers, including such recent high-profile acquisitions as the Dallas Mavericks, the University of Iowa, and Via Motors, continue receiving the value they have come to expect from the company, while also identifying, and taking advantage of, opportunities to provide automated marketing services to users beyond Add-On’s traditional base in the technology industry.
Before joining Act-On, Cameron had served as chief revenue officer of San Francisco-based cloud storage firm Cloudwords, and before that he was enterprise software developer Autodesk’s vice president of worldwide sales.
