A Note from SearchSpring’s New CEO, Peter Messana


Peter Messana and Gareth Dismore

Hi, I’m Peter.

I’m excited to be the new CEO taking over from Gareth Dismore (read an update from Gareth here) and building on the incredible foundation he has built. The SearchSpring product is second to none, built addressing many of the obstacles that retailers face on their website in terms of not only search, but more key, merchandising.

I’m thrilled to help lead the team and continue to build upon the success SearchSpring has had over the years. Together, the team and I are aligned on the goal of providing amazing products, service and support to all of our customers.

Just to share a little bit of my background, I’ve spent over 15 years in the retail and technology space, most recently as COO of GroupBy. Previously, I co-founded Austin Kayak and was CEO and President of Summit Sports.

As we move forward, I’m looking forward to working with our current customers on what we are doing well and what we need to improve. We’ll continue to build amazing products and I’m eager to work with the SearchSpring team on delivering value to each and every customer.
