Global social commerce platform, Teespring, has announced the appointment of Conrad Brandt as VP Finance and Wendy Mazzoni as Chief of Staff. 

The US firm, which has its European headquarters in London, said the two hires will help to strategically position the business for maximum growth into an industry which is growing rapidly and is rife with competitors. 

Mazzoni and Brandt bring their expertise in growth and acquisitions to Teespring, making their hires two strategic moves.

Conrad Brandt joins Teespring as VP Finance, bringing over 15 years of experience at both private and public companies, where he has developed and led finance teams from early-stage through to IPO. 

He previously worked at Access Information Management, overseeing the completion of 21 acquisitions. He led the company through growth which resulted in the business’ annual revenues doubling in less than 2 years. 

Brandt will be leveraging his skills in all financial areas of Teespring’s business, from cash flow forecasting, to performance analysis and overall commitment to corporate vision, strategy and growth. 

He has worked across a variety of industries including retail, renewable energy, and golf technology. He also worked on the finance team in SolarCity, one of the nation’s leading residential solar providers, helping raise 5 rounds of equity as well as IPO. 

On joining Teespring, Brandt said: “Joining Teespring was an easy decision. It's a great chance to bring my broad financial expertise to an ambitious company  at the forefront of change in the social commerce space.”

At Teespring, Wendy Mazzoni will step into the role of Chief of Staff, overseeing employee operations. 

Mazzoni is an experienced executive who previously positioned CBD brand, Octavia Wellness, for their acquisition by Caliva. 

She has worked primarily in technology, media, and ad-tech focused organisations, and now brings her dynamic leadership skills to Teespring where she will further develop the business’ world-class team. 

Mazzoni utilised her skills and experience in reducing costs, improving profit margins and fundraising during her previous roles as SVP Business Operations & Intelligence at entertainment site Fandom (formerly Wikia), and Vice President of Operations for Fox Interactive Media.

On joining Teespring, Mazzoni said: “I’m thrilled to join Teespring during such exciting developments in the company and the social commerce industry as a whole - the staff are integral to Teespring’s success and I look forward to continuing to strengthen the team.”
