New employees Ed Gagliardi, Patrick Pritchard and David Purisch will all support the company’s sales and marketing efforts in various capacities.
Leading U.S. financial technology company TouchSuite continues to expand its team to support its growing portfolio of industry innovation and new-to-market tools. The three new senior level team members will oversee various aspects of sales, marketing and business development for the award-winning business and payment technology company.
Ed Gagliardi joins the TouchSuite team as Director of Strategic Markets, focusing primarily on the company’s newly acquired Lightning Payments product. Previously, Mr. Gagliardi served as the vice president of marketing and sales for such leading national brands as Colgate Palmolive Company, Airwick Industries and Atlas Paper Mills, where he also went on to serve as interim president. Mr. Gagliardi’s decades of corporate leadership, sales and marketing, and relationship management will support his ability to identify and build new opportunities for TouchSuite’s most innovative payment tools.
