Rocketrip Announces Executive Level Customer Success and Finance Additions
NEW YORK, MAY 16, 2017 — Rocketrip, the leading technology platform for reducing corporate travel expenses, today announced Rebecca Gordon as its new Vice President of Customer Success as well as the inclusion of Tania Secor to the company’s Strategic Advisory Committee.
In her new role, Gordon will lead the team responsible for ensuring efficient and effective implementation of the Rocketrip platform, helping customers maximize value. She will also help build, maintain and grow relationships with Rocketrip’s strategic clients.
Bringing more than ten years experience in the field of client service at companies including Gerson Lehrman Group and Axiom, Gordon joins Rocketrip from ClearServe, where she served as Interim Vice President of Operations and Strategy. She previously served as COO of Quadra Advisors, a boutique recruiting firm.
“Rocketrip has an incredible depth of talent, and I look forward to working with the highly-accomplished team to continue providing meaningful value to our customers,” said Gordon. “Our growing client roster has benefitted from Rocketrip’s disruptive approach to business travel, and my aim is to elevate their already-world-class customer experience.”
Secor brings two decades of financial leadership experience to Rocketrip, having served in financial leadership positions at public corporations, such as McGraw-Hill and Medidata Solutions, and having been the CFO of venture-backed growth businesses, including Gerson Lehrman Group and Dataminr.
“I have been a fan of Rocketrip ever since I met Dan, Rocketrip’s founder, four years ago when he called on me as a potential client. Rocketrip has developed a groundbreaking, innovative platform that provides cost-saving opportunities to CFOs while also providing a meaningful employee rewards program to HR leaders. It’s a win-win solution -- especially in an era where c-suite executives seek to manage costs while attracting the best talent,” said Secor.
These key additions are part of Rocketrip’s focus on meeting the scale and robust requirements of its enterprise customers and accelerating the company’s traction as it marches toward becoming the de facto platform for companies to budget and save on mounting travel costs.
“Rebecca and Tania’s extensive experience and philosophical alignment with Rocketrip’s mission make them an ideal fit for our innovative team, and I look forward to working alongside them as we continue modernizing the workplace through our platform,” said Dan Ruch, founder and CEO of Rocketrip.
This news comes off the heels of Rocketrip’s recently launched collaboration ecosystem for corporate travel management, with participation from companies like Carlson Wagonlit Travel, Ovation, and Travel Leaders Corporate, as well as travel software providers Concur, Deem and Sabre. Furthermore, the company hit record revenue numbers in 2016, with 300% year-over-year customer growth, adding brands including GE, Edmunds and Twitter to its client portfolio.
Rocketrip reduces business travel costs by aligning employee and employer interests. The platform produces custom trip budgets for employees and motivates them to spend less by letting them keep half of what they save. As the global leader in Incentivized Behavioral Change, Rocketrip inspires thoughtful spending by giving employees a stake in their company's bottom line. It’s a win-win approach trusted by clients including GE, Edmunds, and Twitter.
Founded in 2013 and headquartered in New York City, Rocketrip's investors include Bessemer Venture Partners, Canaan Partners, Genacast Ventures and Y Combinator.
