Bill.com, the leading company creating magically simple business payments, today announced the hire of Sheela Zemlin as Senior Vice President of Sales and Customer Success.
Zemlin will serve a strategic role in scaling all of the company's sales channels, including inside sales for small businesses and direct sales for mid-market businesses and accountants. Her addition to the leadership team will help Bill.com continue its mission to provide businesses nationwide with premier digital payments solutions that make paying and getting paid fast, easy and secure.
"The consumerization of business payments is not a fad – it's the future. Small and medium-sized businesses everywhere are automating their back office processes and transitioning to digital payments," said Zemlin. "I couldn't be more excited to join Bill.com and help bring businesses nationwide onto the platform."
Zemlin joins Bill.com with over 15 years of experience in sales, business development and corporate strategy within the technology sector. She comes to Bill.com from Lithium Technologies, where she was Vice President of Global Sales and Business Operations. Prior to Lithium Technologies, Zemlin held senior leadership positions in sales, general management, corporate strategy and business development with Taleo, Oracle, LexisNexis and Intuit. She holds an MBA from Harvard Business School and a BA from Michigan State University.
Zemlin's arrival to the Bill.com leadership team comes on the heels of a $50M capital raise. In addition to expanding the team, the new funding will enable the company to continue scaling the Bill.com network, which has grown by more than 100 percent in the past 12 months to over 600,000 members.
"Bill.com is growing at a remarkable pace and we are thrilled to have Sheela join our leadership team as we continue to bring magically simple business payments to businesses nationwide," said René Lacerte, founder and CEO of Bill.com. "Today's small businesses lack the proper tools to manage their A/P and A/R processes, and we see a huge opportunity to help SMBs introduce new levels of efficiency to their back-office operations by automating the processes from end to end."
