Blending a new team of legal, marketing, sales and finance experts, RPost increases its market leadership in the electronic notifications, e-signatures, and secure messaging industry with this new team of veteran office heads and sales experts.

Alongside Barkey, Bart Bonnevalle, an IT sales veteran, now heads the sales department for this region.

RPost’s new Zurich office is part of RPost AG, a newly incorporated Swiss subsidiary. RPost AG is now headed by Hayri Bulman, a 30-year IT services veteran who has worked in management positions at GE and Xerox. The Swiss operation also covers RPost’s expanding activities in Germany and complements RPost’s European offices in Amsterdam and London.

Four other new hires strengthen RPost’s vertical market practices in the collections, messaging, legal and postal sectors: Jodi Matteson joins RPost’s office in Los Angeles as business director for collections applications.
