Sean Foster, CEO, Crowdtap

From all indications, Sean Foster is the industry’s go-to guy when it comes to consumer ecommerce and marketing, which explains why he was recently tapped for the top spot at Crowdtap, the SaaS social influence marketing platform that makes it easy for marketers to influence the conversation around their brand by inspiring a crowd of consumers to create quality content, drive unmatched social activity and provide real-time insights.

He has a proven track record of building great consumer experiences, developing thriving communities and scaling successful organizations. At dLife, he successfully transitioned the business from a media company to a branded products and services company, ultimately resulting in the sale of the company in late 2013.

Foster was responsible for a $120mm consumer e-commerce business as President, Online of Avon Products, Inc. He was also the CMO for The Gilt Groupe, where he delivered hyper sales growth and led the development of the flash sales model. In addition, Sean served as the Vice President of Marketing for Weight Watchers International, responsible for all US, UK, Canada, Germany and Australia sales and marketing.

Amazing track record, but as we said – he’s your go-to guy.

Keep up with Sean:
