At BigCommerce, Mark and his team help merchants create a smooth customer experience from start to finish, especially in the front end. Mark is an e-com veteran — he’s been in the space for 15+ years.

“We talk a lot about B2C brands — big CPG, FMCG brands — that are just at the early stages of experimenting with e-commerce. But they have and spend a lot of money on digital campaigns and marketing. They need to start testing, learning, and innovating on their commerce experience to bring a direct-to-consumer [interaction] to the end consumer.”
