Introducing Our New Vice President

Blog header showing tools used to make announcements

Hello, Bonanzlers! We hope your 2020 is off to a great start. We have some exciting news to share with you, our community.

Effective January 2, 2020 Alloy and Bonanza Chief Executive Officer Bill Harding appointed Greg Braukus as Bonanza’s Vice President. Braukus will have complete responsibility for the Bonanza business including product and seller strategy, development priorities, and support. Bill will transition his full attention to the company’s exciting new projects, Amplenote (tasks and note taking) and GitClear (developer metrics, git analytics). 

 

This transition in Bonanza Leadership is happening at a great time for Bonanza and its sellers. In recent years, Bill has gradually stepped back from day-to-day operations at Bonanza, as he works to build the tools that can help medium-sized operations like Bonanza maximize their productive output. According to Mr. Harding, “our sellers will appreciate the strategic vision and critical eye that Greg brings to Bonanza. His 20+ years in Customer Service, eCommerce and Operational Excellence will serve us well in our mission to help Sellers grow the most profitable, trust-worthy and sustainable online stores with Bonanza. Greg has quickly come in and identified a path forward that will deliver a high-quality, seller-centric experience. I expect him to drive incrementally higher GMV for any merchant using Bonanza in 2020.”

 

Aside from leveraging the longstanding Bonanza “secret sauce” (happy sellers), Mr. Braukus is calling for a renewed focus on creating:

  • the best-in-class seller value proposition, with tools and features to generate profit with less process
  • a marketplace that can effectively combat fraud and ensure compliance at a time where many eCommerce sites have come under scrutiny
  • a reinvigorated, seller-based community that helps drive decision-making

Prior to joining Bonanza, Mr. Braukus spent over a decade with capital equipment manufacturer Terex Corporation (NYSE: TEX) in several leadership positions, culminating as Director of Enterprise eCommerce for the company.   Before joining Terex, Braukus was Senior Director, ISS for Microsoft, where he led the inside sales, tele partner account management, vendor operations and partner connections businesses for the small and mid-market solutions & partners division in the United States.  He also spent five years with Amazon.com where he held several leadership roles in Fulfillment Operations and Customer Service.

    Welcome Mr.Braukus! Hopefully you can move the sales needle for us! A suggestion is ADVERTISING!!! Almost no one knows who or what Bonanza is! On the other hand ebay is a household name! Let’s close this gap! Thankyou!

    Good news! I hope Mr. Braukus can also solve the international VAT tax problem Bonanza seems to have in remedying. My listings are not showing in the U.K. market because Bonanza seems to not be able to deal with the VAT tax requirements. eBay and Etsy are able to handle this problem, why not Bonanza? To lose a whole U.K. market is inexcusable.
