CULVER CITY, Calif. (Business Wire) -- Magento, the leading eCommerce platform part of the X.commerce division of eBay Inc. (NASDAQ: EBAY), today announced that Glenn Hasen has joined the company as vice president of global sales and channels. In his new role, Glenn will manage day-to-day operations of the sales organization and oversee merchant adoption, successful customer onboarding and retention of the Magento platform.
“We are delighted to welcome Glenn to the Magento family,” said Roy Rubin co-founder and chief operating officer at Magento. “The depth of experience that he brings to the sales team will help us foster greater collaboration between our key stakeholders as we double down on our commitments to merchants, partners, and developers.”
Glenn brings over 25 years of sales, business development, services and channels experience to the role having previously directed global activities for major technology organizations with emerging offerings like big data, cloud, applications, and mobile.
Prior to joining Magento, Glenn directed worldwide field operations at Zend Technologies, expanding operations to a 25 percent annual growth rate. Additional roles include positions at Pivotal Software and Computer Associates. Glenn's leadership experience also includes serving as the president and chief executive officer of several technology software companies.
Glenn holds a bachelor's degree from the University of Waterloo, Ontario and finance certificates from both the Wharton School of Business and Columbia University.
The Magento eCommerce platform serves more than 150,000 merchants worldwide and is supported by a global ecosystem of solution partners and third-party developers. Magento is a feature-rich, open-source, enterprise-class platform that offers merchants a high degree of flexibility and control over the user experience, catalog, content and functionality of their online store. In August 2011, Magento was acquired by eBay Inc., and is now a division of X.commerce, Inc. (an eBay Inc. company).
