NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today Emissary announced the hiring of a new CTO, Eric Fung, and a move
to new corporate headquarters in Manhattan. The move comes after
a year in which the company tripled the size of its client list and
doubled the size of its employee base.
Fung was previously CTO of SALIDO and led them through its acquisition
by North American Bancard. He has served in leadership positions in
other venture-backed companies, including Esaya (acquired by LinkedIn)
and Refinery29, where he served as the Head of Product and Engineering.
Fung was also a former Global Practice Director at Symantec on their
Application Performance Management consulting team.
“I’m excited to be joining Emissary at such a perfect time. I’m looking
forward to helping the company scale their product offering and achieve
the goal of transforming the way people work with human intelligence,”
Emissary is a human intelligence network, connecting enterprise sales
and marketing teams for 1:1 conversations with senior executives who
have recently left their target accounts. The company’s network includes
over 12,000 advisors, many of whom have recently held C-level roles at
Fortune 500 firms. By understanding their customers better, members of
the Emissary network see shorter sales cycles, uncover new
opportunities, build longer-lasting relationships, and close more deals.
“2018 was a year of monumental growth for Emissary,” said CEO and
Founder David Hammer.
“Some of the largest and fastest growing companies in the world are now
using the Emissary network to help them understand their accounts and
navigate their most complex deals. With a new headquarters and a
talented new CTO in Eric, we are better positioned than ever to meet the
needs of our customers and continue our path towards rapid growth,” said
Emissary provides enterprise sales and marketing professionals access to
inside insights on their most important accounts by connecting them
directly with executives — called “Emissaries” — who worked at those
accounts. These executives deliver detailed intelligence and guidance on
their target accounts, helping shorten sales cycles and close more
deals. Founded by former Google technologist David Hammer, Emissary is
backed by Canaan Partners, G20 Ventures and Google Ventures, and is
headquartered in NYC. For more information, visit https://www.Emissary.io.
