Cashless payment and access control specialist Intellitix has bolstered its team with the appointment of Eric Janssen as Chief Revenue Officer.
Tasked with leading global sales, marketing and business development, Janssen will be based in Toronto with a mandate to grow the company’s client base and continue to build its reputation as the market leader in RFID solutions for events.
Janssen is well placed for success with past roles including Director of Business Development at Wrapp, created by co-founders of internet giants including Spotify, Groupon and SoundCloud, where he helped grow the team and scale the platform across the United States through strategic partnerships and direct sales. Prior to joining Wrapp, he held a similar role at Mobiroo, where he was the Director of Strategy and Business Development.
Janssen says: “I am passionate about new technology and how consumers can use it to enhance their experiences in the offline world, which is exactly what Intellitix is about. Having experienced exponential growth since its launch, part of my role will be to continue delivering a best-in-class solution to an expanding global customer base.”
Since its launch in 2011 Intellitix has activated over 5 million RFID tags at music festivals and live events including Coachella and Bonnaroo (US), UEFA Champions Festival and Barclaycard British Summertime (UK), Bluesfest, Festimania and Festival d’Été Quebec (Canada) and worked with brands including Ford, Spotify, HTC, Sony, Gazprom, PlayStation, UniCredit, adidas and Red Bull.
