Online-payments platform Stripe has actually hired a brand-new head of interactions. The unicorn startup has been without a worldwide head of communications since Kelly Sims left the business in October, 2019, after six years at the company.
In an email dripped to Insider about the statement, Stripe composed:
” We kicked off our look for this function in May 2019 and ever since have actually spoken to much of the market’s leading lights. It took a while to find the ideal person, however we could not have actually gotten luckier with Shannon.”
Brayton was previously at LinkedIn for 9 years as chief marketing officer. In the e-mail, she stated she met John Collison, the CEO of Stripe, almost four years back and has constantly kept the business on her radar.
Stripe is one of the world’s most important startups, last valued at $36 billion earlier this year. In November, Stripe supposedly went into talks to raise a brand-new financing round that might value the unicorn startup at more than $70 billion or as much as $100 billion, according to Bloomberg’s Katie Roofing system
Brayton will start on January 25, reporting to Collison.
