London, 13 June 2012 - Connected Commerce vendor Compario continues its UK expansion with the appointment of Paul McCann as UK country manager and the signing of its first partnership with E-Commerce technology agency The Commerce Partnership.

Paul McCann will be based in Compario’s UK headquarters in Maidenhead and will be responsible for expanding the company’s UK customer base. His role will include building relationships and strategic partnerships with other organisations also working with the UK’s top 300 retailers.

One of Paul’s immediate objectives is to explore joint opportunities with Compario’s first UK partner, The Commerce Partnership, whose clients include French Connection, Nicole Fahri and Toast.

Paul joins Compario from Infosys, and has over 13 years’ experience in the IT industry, particularly within the CRM software and enterprise sectors. During this time, his drive and enthusiasm have enabled him to forge successful relationships with a range of companies including Spotify, Skype and Telefonica.

Paul made the decision to join Compario after identifying its unique and innovative solution as part of the next generation of E-Commerce tools. He was also attracted by the company’s culture of dynamism and agility and its remarkable community of customers and partners.
“This is an exciting time for Compario and I look forward to helping to drive its expansion,” said Paul. “The company already has an impressive roster of clients in Europe and with the support of organisations such as The Commerce Partnership we can continue to spread the message about the vital role that Compario plays in improving the online shopping experience.”

In the past few months, Compario has moved from strength to strength, most recently ranking in the Red Herring Europe Top 100. We have every confidence that Paul’s determination and drive, coupled with a wealth of experience, will make a vital contribution to our continued success.”
