New product leader brings elite knowledge of financial management space, struggles facing financial teams when addressing commissions.
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, September 22, 2021 – Spiff, the leading sales commission software for forward-thinking revenue and sales organizations, announced today that it has hired Raphael Bres as its Chief Product Officer. Bres is uniquely positioned to innately understand the challenges facing finance teams as commissions become increasingly complex.
“Commission management has become a major headache for enterprise finance teams. Instead of one structure for everyone on variable compensation plans, there are numerous structures in place depending on geography, team, industry – just to name a few of the complexities facing finance teams,” Bres said. “I am thrilled to be joining a company that is already the industry leader and look forward to helping our customers elevate incentive compensation as a strategy to accelerate revenue growth with a new class of software that takes the guesswork out of commissions for sales and finance organizations.”
Bres brings over 25 years of experience in Enterprise Financial Applications and software-as-a-service, working with leading software companies such as PeopleSoft/Oracle, Microsoft, Workday, FinancialForce. Most recently, he served as Chief Product Officer at Tradeshift. Raphael started his career at Deloitte Financial Audit and Deloitte ERP Consulting. He holds a Master of Sciences in Economics and a Master of Sciences in Information Systems from the University of Paris-Dauphine.
“There are fewer than 10 people in the world who could bring Raphael’s expertise to this role,” Jeron Paul, founder and CEO, Spiff, said. “He is one of the world’s foremost authorities on designing financial management software for finance teams and we are very honored to have him here on the team at Spiff. We are confident that Raphael will help us continue to bring innovative solutions and better capture the needs of the finance teams working hard to get commission structure right.”
Spiff is on track to have a very successful 2021, forecasting triple-digit growth. In addition to raising another $46 million in Series B funding, the company recently was named a leader in eight sales compensation reports from G2, the largest software marketplace and review platform.
