US: TradeCard appoints Feeney as CEO
Supply chain platform TradeCard has appointed Sean Feeney as CEO to "optimise business growth opportunities".
Feeney will oversee all operations to sharpen TradeCard's strategic focus on product innovation, differentiated market presence, sales execution and customer service delivery, the company said.
Prior to joining TradeCard, Freeney served as operating executive for private equity firm Golden Gate Capital and CEO of Inovis.
Feeney replaces Kurt Cavano, who will focus on business and product strategy. Cavano will continue his involvement as chairman of the TradeCard board of directors. His new title will be founder, chairman and chief strategy officer.
"This transformation will maximize value-creation opportunities for TradeCard's customers, investors and employees," said Cavano.
"His leadership and guidance will direct our execution strategy as we deliver new services for the small and medium business (SMB) and supplier markets, unveil a platform-as-a-service toolkit for developers, and expand our presence in Europe and Asia."
