Listed eCommerce firm Attraqt appoints CEO from BigCommerce
Listed eCommerce firm Attraqt has appointed Mark Adams as its CEO, effective from June 2020.
The firm’s current CEO Luke McKeever will transition to a non-executive director role simultaneously.
Adams joins the firm from eCommerce platform provider BigCommerce, where he founded and led the Group's European operations from the first employee to a multi-function team covering Sales, Marketing, Partner Channel, Solution Engineering and Customer Success.
Attraqt was named a BigCommerce Technology Partner in February 2020, and the two companies have a number of joint customers with a significant pipeline of new prospects.
Attraqt said it looks forward to developing this relationship going forward.
Prior to his latest role, Adams held a number of senior management positions in the eCommerce space for 20 years, including as the Co-Founder and Partner at eComp Consulting, and as an Owner & Sales & Marketing Director at Portaltech.
Nick Habgood, Interim Executive Chairman of Attraqt, said: "We are delighted to have Mark joining us as CEO, he is a well-known and highly respected figure in the eCommerce space, with a strong reputation for customer excellence.
“We have been working together with Mark for some time and been hugely impressed with his dynamism and domain expertise.
“Notwithstanding the ongoing challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, we have a huge opportunity ahead of us and are well-placed to capitalise upon it."
Adams added: "Having got to know the Attraqt business through the recent BigCommerce partnership I have been very impressed with the Company, its team and growth strategy.
