Soldo, the London-based FinTech solving the challenge of automating, delegating and controlling company spending, has announced its first key hire of 2018, marking the start of a year of fast expansion ahead for the company that wants to make controlling company and employee spending a breeze.
Luca Scagliarini, whose previous experience includes several C-Suite roles including CEO of the US operations, CMO and member of the board at Expert System, was welcomed into the Soldo family as January commenced displaying a confident prediction for the year ahead.
With his extensive background in enterprise software marketing and general management, the appointment is an exciting move for Soldo as Scagliarini joins as the company’s first VP Marketing. Scagliarini has more than 20 years of marketing and business development experience with large organisations as well as startups, making him the ideal candidate for Soldo, which recently secured a £11 million Series A round of funding from the notable venture capital firm Accel to bring its fintech solution to companies across Europe.
Holding an Engineering Degree from the Politecnico di Milano (Italy) and an MBA from Santa Clara University, California (USA), Scagliarini has significant experience in the US startup world, including a marketing role at SiteSmith that contributed to its ultimate sale to Metromedia Fiber Network and as co-founder and initial CEO of the ad-tech company, ADmantX.
With his multi-year experience in Senior Marketing and Business Development roles focussing on international markets, Scagliarini will be the driving force behind international expansion through the definition and execution of a sales and marketing strategy within Soldo.
Carlo Gualandri, Founder and CEO of Soldo, declared, “We are very enthusiastic about the year ahead and are looking forward to the acceleration of market penetration Luca will bring to the company. We have exciting announcements to unveil in the coming months and we’re delighted to welcome Luca on board at this pivotal time in the company’s growth. His arrival signals the start of a period of fast growth which Soldo is about to embark on. With this we look forward to similar announcements as we add to our expert team in the next year.”
