Vareto announces new Marketing and Customer success leadership hires

Vareto announces new leadership hires

Since raising our Series A last year, Vareto has reached new growth milestones. Notable accomplishments this past year include expanding our customer base by 10x, tripling employee headcount to meet the growing demand for our solutions, and doubling revenue the last two quarters in a row.

Today, we’re excited to announce three key hires to support Vareto’s rapid growth: BJ Ebert as Head of Customer Success, Melody Chen as Head of Marketing, and Vera DeVera as Head of Community. 

BJ brings 13 years of finance experience, most recently as a senior director of an international strategic finance team. With his background leading FP&A teams, BJ offers firsthand knowledge and perspective to help customers get the most value out of their investment with Vareto.

Melody joins Vareto from Gartner, where she was a VP of Product Marketing. Previously, she led the marketing, customer success, design, and operations teams at Pulse Q&A, a peer-driven market research platform that was acquired by Gartner and incorporated into their Peer Insights product. 

Vera comes to Vareto from Ironclad, where she most recently drove event and content strategy. As the first community builder at Ironclad, Vera grew the legal operations community from scratch to 2,000 members. Her work growing the community via in-person and virtual community events, the community newsletter, and content at Ironclad was featured in David Spinks’s book, "The Business of Belonging: How to Make Community your Competitive Advantage."  

“One of Vareto’s main differentiators is our people,” said Vareto CEO Kat Orekhova. “We have a deep bench of talent that has scaled products and teams from the ground up at companies such as Smartsheet and Ironclad. Other Vareto leaders have led teams at enterprise companies such as Meta and Hewlett Packard. We also have FP&A embedded in our DNA — our Customer Success, Product, Design, and Engineering teams include talent with finance backgrounds, which enables us to build a thoughtful product with deep empathy for our users and their needs.”
