We are thrilled to announce the appointment of our new Chief Revenue Officer Jean-Christophe Taunay-Bucalo.
His last role at Vend was as Chief Revenue Officer where he started as one of the first employees and helped grow the business to be worth $150m+, which has 15,000 customers worldwide and over 200 employees.
JC as Jean-Christophe Taunay-Bucalo prefers to be known as, has over 10 years experience working in the SaaS industry, in which time he helped drive 3 companies to leading positions worldwide.
After graduating as a Master of Business Science from Audencia Business School in Nantes, he then completed an MSC degree in Marketing Management at Aston University in Birmingham.
From there he worked with Global SP, Citrix and most notably Vend.
Not many people within the Retail Saas space can match JC’s knowledge and experience, therefore we are extremely lucky to have JC onboard.
JC’s knowledge of the SaaS industry will help us develop a better product for customers and help boost revenue.
On why JC chose Veeqo, he had this to say, “I wanted to work for a company, with a great team, solving a big problem.
Veeqo already has a strong customer base and I have been amazed by the customer’s feedback, they were raving about it”.

JC acknowledges that online selling can provide a real headache. As retailers look to expand their businesses, they start selling on more channels, but seeing a complete overview of their business is difficult. This is where JC believes Veeqo can help out.
“The online experience is not always as good as it should be. The underlying issue is the absence of an integrated solution for inventory, omnichannel and shipping and this is exactly what Veeqo intends to solve.
Veeqo is partnering with the best Ecommerce platforms such as Shopify, Magento and Woocommerce, marketplaces such as Amazon and eBay, as well as shipping company like DHL, UPS and Royal Mail, to deliver this all-in-one solution”.
On what he wanted to achieve personally during his time at Veeqo, JC stresses the importance of a creating a strong team environment.
“There is nothing more satisfying for me than helping a young talented team become more proficient in SaaS. It creates an amazing eco-system which will ultimately benefit everyone. I have seen it in action in New Zealand with Xero, Vend, Timely and others”.
Our CEO Matt Warren commented, “To have someone of JC’s calibre join Veeqo is a testament to what the team have created, a world class tech company based in Wales. I am really excited about working with JC, scaling Veeqo to the next level and making life easier for retailers around the world.”
