Ex-Stardoll and iZettle executives join Truecaller

Written by on August 7, 2013

Truecaller is on a bit of a roll. They recently passed 20 million users, launched a partnership with Innoz and seem to be growing rapidly. Today, they announce two pretty great recruits. Ted Nelson former SVP Sales & GM at Stardoll joins as Chief Commercial Officer and Anders Gustafsson, former Finance Director at iZettle, as Chief Financial Officer.

Whilst they’ve been experiencing great growth, they have not as yet been able to monetize their user base, so clearly these two recruits have been brought in to tackle this issue.

Nelson, the new COO said,

“I look forward to join the exciting team that is emerging at Truecaller. Truecaller is at an early stage with a nascent explosive global growth and it is in this environment I love to work. The challenge is now to continue to accelerate user growth and make sure to lead our commercialization into the right path,”. 

Gustafsson, the new CFO explains,

“I am very excited to be joining the Truecaller team. The product is really well liked by users, who engage with it frequently and recommend it to their friends – two of the finest endorsements you can get. My new role will be responsible for the financial management and securing future investments.”
