It’s 2020 and we’re ringing in the new year—and decade—with an addition to our senior ranks! If you read our previous post welcoming AssureSign’s new chief revenue officer, you already know we’re growing!
AssureSign first began reinventing the dotted line in 2000 shortly after the ESIGN Act legalized verbal and electronic means of agreements and contracts. Now, after nearly twenty years, we’ve supported more than 800 million eSignatures for thousands of the world’s largest brands! And that number is climbing quicker than ever as more beloved brands like Tropical Smoothie Café and Junior Achievement USA choose the convenience and security of AssureSign.
“When the signatures grow, we grow” is frequently quipped by our President and CEO. Keeping this in mind, we’re excited to introduce our newest AssureSTAR, Matthew Smith, VP of Finance here at AssureSign!
Matthew Smith: AssureSign’s VP of Finance
After graduating from Auburn University with a B.S. in finance, Matt moved to the Nashville, Tennessee metro area, where he received his MBA from Belmont University’s Massey School of Business with a concentration in finance. After graduating, Matt dove into a career of finance as the controller for Entrada, where he later helped navigate its acquisition by NextGen Healthcare. In addition to Entrada, Matt has worked in senior finance positions for Clearwater Compliance, LLC along with other SaaS-based companies.
Starting with AssureSign in November of 2019, Matt hit the ground running, immediately fostering innovation within our financial division.
Genuinely Valued Feedback
Matt quickly noticed how AssureSign’s core values—People of Character, Invested, Innovative, and Genuine—are integrated both internally and within our go-to-market strategy.
“In my first few days at AssureSign, my most notable observation was unwavering adoption of the core values by nearly every process and person within the company. It became clear that a sense of character, innovation, genuineness and investment in the company, in one’s colleagues, and in one’s self is pervasive.”
But Matt’s not the only one with genuine feedback. Check out these reactions from a few AssureSTARS out of AssureSign’s Atlanta office:
“Matt’s accomplished tenure makes him exceptionally qualified to lead our finance division. We’re lucky to have him with us.”
– David Madison, COO
“I’ve had the privilege of getting to know Matt over the past few weeks; however, I knew somewhat instantly he’d be a great fit at AssureSign. His experience working in finance with multiple SaaS companies is a phenomenal asset. I’m excited to see what else he’ll bring to the table!”
– Anna McDonald, Partner Sales Manager
“I met Matt his first week at AssureSign and liked him instantly! We’re both from the Nashville area and instantly found a lot to talk to him about. His alma mater, Belmont University, is an excellent school, and from what I’ve seen of his experience in tech, we’re lucky to have him aboard!”
– Jackson Burke, Marketing Manager
Crafting the VP position within our financial division couldn’t have come at a more exciting time. In addition to the eSignature and document management platform acquiring a plurality of new features last year, AssureSign just rolled out streamlined pricing for 2020!
Wave goodbye to extra costs for additional seats or subaccounts. All AssureSign plans now include unlimited users/seats and subaccounts and are designed to include the features and functionality your SMB, mid-sized, or large business needs!
Jackson joined AssureSign in early 2017 and currently manages the content and communications teams. He has several years’ experience in the field of marketing, is considered a subject matter expert of eSignature implementation successes, and has been published by the American Bar Association, among other notable publications. Jackson received a B.S. in mass communication and an M.Ed. in professional counseling from Middle Tennessee State University.
