Some of our regular readers may have seen the news this morning — we’re very excited here at Zuora to announce today the newest member of our Board of Directors — Scott Thompson, President of PayPal.

 

We met Scott a few months ago, and clicked with him immediately as he really gets what we’re doing here at Zuora. Scott also has tremendous experience in the payment industry, having helped build the technology behind PayPal, THE global leader in fast, secure online payments. We believe payments and billing go hand-in-hand, and are excited that Scott will bring his expertise as part of our expanded board.

 

We think having Scott on our board is huge as it signifies the convergence of the emerging online billing industry with the well-established online payments industry. What do you think?

 

This is the first of some big announcements we’re gearing up to make in the next couple of months, all of which we’ll post to the Z-blog, so thanks for following our happenings here.
