NEW YORK, NY – (December 21, 2015) – Updater, the leading technology platform to streamline the moving process, today announced that it has expanded its sales team by hiring Chris Saad as Director of its Moving and Storage division. Saad formerly served as a sales consultant at EWS Group, one of the top move management software providers for moving companies around the country.
At Updater, Saad will focus on introducing Updater’s innovative technology solutions to top moving companies and national van lines. He will also work to secure integrations with the industry’s top technology vendors, leveraging his expansive network within the relocation technology industry.
“Moving companies today are seeking innovative solutions that meet their customers’ evolving needs, as well as their customers’ problems,” says Michael Clarner, Executive Director of Moving and Storage at Updater. “With the addition of Chris to our team, we’re building a strong backbone of knowledge and industry leadership to solve customer problems.”
With more than nine years of leadership experience at EWS Group, Saad played a crucial role in directing the company’s strategic sales planning and business development initiatives.
