SocketLabs Names Brandon Dingae as Chief Revenue Officer
ASTON, PA – December 16, 2020 – Email industry titan SocketLabs strikes again, this time adding the highly accomplished and desired Brandon Dingae as their Chief Revenue Officer. Dingae is a longtime partner and friend to recently hired CEO, Tim Moore. Moore shared “Brandon adds the last major piece to the puzzle this team has needed. We’re ready to make a massive impact by providing custom solutions that only we can offer to solve our customers unique problems. We are a team ready for massive growth and scale, and Brandon will provide the fuel for this train to go extremely fast.”
An experienced and versatile leader with over 15 years of building lasting business partnerships based on value and trust, Dingae was most recently the VP Sales and Partnerships at Validity, Inc. Prior to that, as VP Sales and Partnerships at 250ok, Dingae was critical in driving the company’s revenue growth leading to its acquisition by Validity.
“I’m thrilled to join a team like SocketLabs at such and exciting point in email infrastructure evolution,” Dingae shared. “Everyone is looking toward how to add intelligence everywhere they can, which we agree is where things are inevitably going. However, we feel like there is an inefficiency in the marketplace where our competitors are either unable or disincentivized to solve their customers’ unique business problems. These are problems we will be enthusiastic to help them solve.”
“Brandon has a strong track record of successfully scaling go–to–market organizations which is why we sought him out,” said Moore. “He was instrumental in the revenue acceleration phase at 250ok where he scaled both the direct sales and partnership organizations resulting in rapid revenue growth, ultimately leading to 250ok’s acquisition by their largest competitor. Brandon also has a strong belief in cultivating a consultative relationship with customers and partners. He establishes a foundation of trust that their needs will be addressed; something that felt like a natural fit with our culture.”
“I am most impressed with the team, technology, and solutions we offer, which combined, create a unique opportunity to transform the digital communications landscape that has needed innovation for quite a while.” said Dingae, “Customers are discovering that their current provider or in-house solution is no longer the right fit from a technology and/or service perspective. The challenge companies face is that alternative providers cannot solve their business problems, so they are stuck with a one-size-fits-all solution. SocketLabs has the technical flexibility to create and deliver customized solutions to ensure their email is performing the exact way our customers require.”
Dingae’s leadership experience in revenue growth and partnerships makes him ideal to lead SocketLabs’ expansion. Spending over a decade at Return Path in roles that focused on growing revenue, scaling go-to-market teams, and establishing partnerships. Brandon also spent a significant part of his tenure launching Return Path’s business in new global markets (Europe, Latin America, and Asia).
When asked what made him decide to join the SocketLabs team, Dingae responded, “Ultimately, it was their team and human-oriented culture. I see a group of people that wants to make the most fully featured, yet simple and automated user experience they can, while remaining committed to providing the high-touch, high-quality service that they have become known for. All of the raw materials are there for one amazing organization.”
