PrestaShop expands into the UK
Ecommerce software solution PrestaShop is planning to expand by opening its services for consumers in the United Kingdom, the absolute number one ecommerce market in Europe. A country manager will be recruited and will be responsible for local business development in the UK. PrestaShop currently has business operations in France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxemburg, Spain and the US.
PrestaShop already has many users in the United Kingdom. But according to Benjamin Teszner, CEO of the French ecommerce solution, this is not enough. “We have the most dynamic e-commerce solution in the market, a freemium business model, several very strong local partners, and a very healthy user base in the UK. Having a country manager in the region will enable us to strengthen those relationships and expand our business opportunities”, he says.
Experience to conduct international business development
PrestaShop’s recruitment manager Fiona Cohen is now looking for people with “a passion for internet technology, an entrepreneurial spirit and the experience needed to conduct international business development on behalf of our company”.
PrestaShop was founded by Bruno Lévêque and Igor Schlumberger in 2007. In April 2011 Benjamin Tezner was hired as CEO to make PrestaShop the world´s number one ecommerce solution. Today, more than 200,000 ecommerce stores are built on PrestaShop technology. The French company also runs a open source community that united more than 700,000 vendors, developers, web agencies and partners from the sector. PrestaShop currently has offices in France and the USA.
