VP of Product - Mercury Business Services
About our Client
Mercury Business Services is a Boston-based shipping and logistics organization. Founded in 1984 to provide flexible shipping and high-level tracking for top law firms in Boston, they quickly realized that proactive tracking and troubleshooting providing advanced information allowed clients to better plan, while they focused on their shipping. In addition to Boston and New England, they have also added physical office locations in New York City and Chicago.
Nxt Level partnered with Mercury to find a VP of Product to help modernize and scale to attract new clientele.This person would be expected to come in and learn everything about the product, company, competitors, vendors, and market so that they can plan out the current product roadmap and provide needed changes if necessary.
Before this hire, the CEO was the Head of Product which was causing a major bottleneck for the company as they look to build out a robust SaaS platform. Mercury’s biggest issue finding a product manager, was finding something that would be comfortable being the only product hire in the entire company. Nxt Level was able to find a strong candidate who came from a robotics background and get them interested in the supply chain industry.
*Update: the VP of Product has since been promoted to COO and Nxt Level back filled the VP position in under 4 weeks.*
