MILL VALLEY, Calif. – June 9, 2015 – FileThis, a paperless pioneer in the Bay Area named by TIME Magazine as one of the “50 Best Web Services of 2014,” today announced that it has appointed Gary Zuckerman as Vice President of Business Development. A software industry veteran with extensive experience building successful sales and distribution channels worldwide, Zuckerman will lead FileThis’ strategic expansion as a “Documents-as-a-Service” platform, providing startups and software companies with a seamless back-end for cloud-based document and meta-data delivery.
“Demand for our document delivery services is continuing to grow, with major software companies and startups alike already integrating FileThis on the back-end, including Inlet and Bench,” said Brian Berson, CEO and co-founder of FileThis. “Gary Zuckerman has a proven track record of taking innovative technologies to new heights of sales and distribution. We’re thrilled to welcome him to our leadership team to drive continued growth for this important strategic initiative.”
Zuckerman brings 20 years of experience in accelerating growth for software companies through strategic alliances, international distribution channels, and global sales strategies, including early leadership positions at Trinzic Corporation and Platinum Technology. As VP of Platinum Solutions, Zuckerman created an integrated sales and consulting business unit that delivered automated underwriting solutions to large insurance carriers. During his tenure, the business grew to $40 million with a 50 percent increase in license revenue and a 100 percent increase in consulting margins. As VP of Business Development & International Channels at Xythos, he created OEM and international distribution channels, which accelerated the growth of the company and facilitated a successful exit strategy. Following Xythos’ acquisition by Blackboard, Zuckerman led the sales and channel organization for the Xythos business unit and was appointed VP of Blackboard Japan. Most recently, he was a founding partner at Everest North America, where he worked with Blueriq, a Dutch startup firm, to introduce the Blueriq case management platform to the US market.
“It’s exciting to take on this role at such a critical point in FileThis’ growth trajectory,” said Zuckerman. “I look forward to working together with such a dynamic management team to help shape the next chapter in the company’s future.”
