European employee experience platform, Perkbox, is forging aheand with its global growth plan with the appointment of two senior executives with extensive experience of international scaling.

The firm, which recently raised £13.5m in a funding round, said Marissa White and Ed Ellis have joined the firm as Revenue Operations Director and Organisational Readiness Director, respectively. 

White, whose previous experience in sales operations includes leadership roles at Concentra Analytics, BAE Systems and EMC, will help drive scalability of sales processes and infrastructure across international teams. 

She will lead the newly established Revenue Operations team from Perkbox’s HQ in London. 

Ellis, who has an extensive background in process improvements, working in global leadership roles at EMC and Symantec, will lead the Systems Operations and Customer Experience teams across the London and Sheffield offices to ensure a great customer experience drives operational infrastructure enhancements at Perkbox. 

Together, White and Ellis’s roles will help align marketing, sales and customer success across the full funnel to drive growth and ensure Perkbox’s internal infrastructure remains world class as it scales internationally, the firm said. 

“I did a short engagement for Perkbox earlier this year and I came to love it so much it was hard to say no to the offer of staying”, White said of her appointment. 

“The company has expanded in 2019 in a number of exciting ways - new markets, new channels, and new product offerings. 

“Enhancing and optimising our internal operations in the revenue functions will help us globalise harmoniously so that soon, everyone worldwide can enjoy Perkbox!”

Ed Ellis said: “I’m delighted to be joining the Perkbox team to assist with the next step of scaling their internal infrastructure. 

“Having worked across process improvement in a variety of areas including finance, HR and sales, I’m excited to put this expertise to use at Perkbox to help the team work as efficiently as possible together and deliver a great customer experience.”
