Searchspring Appoints Rebecca Grimes as Chief Sales and Marketing Officer

San Antonio, TX – Searchspring, the global leader in ecommerce site search, product merchandising, and ecommerce personalization, announced the appointment of Rebecca Grimes as Chief Sales and Marketing Officer. In her new role, Grimes will provide strategic leadership to sales, business development, demand generation, content, public relations, analyst relations, and digital marketing teams. This addition comes after a series of new leadership team announcements since Searchspring secured a strategic growth investment from leading growth equity firm, PSG.

“We are thrilled to welcome Rebecca to our leadership team,” said Alex Kombos, CEO of Searchspring. “She is an experienced revenue leader with a strong track record of driving revenue growth and is the perfect fit to support Searchspring through our next chapter of growth. Her deep understanding of the ecommerce industry, along with her ability to foster collaboration across teams, will be critical as we focus on delivering increased value to our customers in 2024 and beyond.”

“When I first met the leadership team, I knew they were building something extraordinary, and I knew they needed a leader who could use data and insights to unlock the true potential for growth in this dynamic market,” said Grimes. “This role combines my strengths in scaling revenue teams and navigating the ecommerce ecosystem – a space that I absolutely love.”

With over 25 years of experience in B2B SaaS, Grimes brings a wealth of expertise to Searchspring. Previously, she served as Chief Revenue Officer at Ruby, where she played a pivotal role in scaling the business across sales, marketing, partnerships, revenue operations, and customer success teams, ultimately leading to the successful sale of Ruby in November of the previous year.

Grimes’ previous positions include Vice President of North America Marketing at Cheetah Digital, SVP of Marketing at PowerReviews, and various sales and marketing leadership roles at prominent Chicago-based companies such as Panduit, CenterPost Communications, and ServiceMaster.

Searchspring is confident that Grimes’s extensive industry knowledge, strategic thinking, and leadership skills will contribute significantly to the company’s growth and further solidify its position as a market leader.
