Profitero ramps up U.S. expansion with new hire

Profitero, a leading global provider of online insights and e-commerce intelligence for retailers and brands, has appointed Raj Khathuria as VP of sales for North America.

Khathuria has more than 17 years of sales management experience. He previously led the North American sales operation for MarkMonitor, a global leader in online brand protection (acquired by Thomson Reuters in 2012), where he was responsible for growth in key vertical markets including consumer goods, luxury apparel and electronics.

“Raj’s extensive experience in building and growing SaaS organizations, coupled with his in-depth understanding of selling to marketing and e-commerce departments of global brands, will be invaluable to Profitero as we scale our operations in North America,” Vol Pigrukh, CEO and co-founder of Profitero, said. "Leveraging Raj’s deep industry knowledge of selling online brand solutions to CPG, apparel and electronics brands, is a huge advantage for Profitero as we continue to enhance our Online Insights solution and help global retailers and brands compete and win in the digital channel.”

“Profitero is solving a very real need for global brands as they navigate the often complex online channel,” Khathuria added. “Every brand owner needs to understand how their brand is performing online, as well as how to more effectively manage and protect their brand’s reputation online. Profitero’s unparalleled technology and scale — collecting online data on more than 250 million products on a daily basis — is the de facto solution for any brand that needs complete visibility into the online channel, helping them to grow their online sales and manage their brand more efficiently. I’m excited to be joining the Profitero team to help drive its North American operation and bring this market-leading solution to many more retailers and brands.”

The company works with more than 50 global retailers, including Sam’s Club, Staples, Waitrose, Worten and Ocado.
