BitPay Expands San Francisco Office

BitPay, the world leader in business solutions for the bitcoin digital currency, has expanded its San Francisco office with several new hires. As part of the recent growth, the company has named Sonny Singh as its Chief Commercial Officer to oversee all sales operations. With over 15 years of experience in helping to grow tech companies, Sonny will be responsible for increasing BitPay’s customer base of over 40,000 merchants.

Previously, Sonny was part of the founding sales team at Jumio as the Vice President of Sales and Business Development, where he was responsible for building and managing the sales team that signed up thousands of merchants including five of the top ten consumer Internet companies.

“BitPay offers merchants a no-risk way to increase revenue while decreasing interchange costs and credit card fraud,” Singh said. “When I looked at the amazing growth rate BitPay has been experiencing, I realized bitcoin is a movement that is going to change ecommerce forever.”

Sonny has over 15 years’ experience in Silicon Valley and previously worked at InMage Systems and Niku which were acquired by Microsoft and Computer Associates respectively.

“Sonny’s experience in Silicon Valley makes him the perfect candidate to build out our San Francisco office,” said Tony Gallippi, Co-founder and Executive Chairman of BitPay. “While BitPay is used by global enterprises, it’s also designed and priced so technology startups can go live quickly.”

In addition to Singh, BitPay has selected Steve Pratt to serve as Director of Business Development. Pratt formerly worked at VISA for 21 years as a vice president in the healthcare markets industry. He earned his Bachelor of Science from the University of Arizona.

BitPay has also added Gregg Zigler as a Senior Software Engineer. Gregg has spent 10 years working on PayPal’s foreign exchange architecture.

Worldwide, BitPay has grown to over 60 employees and has also hired Pierre Rochard, Hamish Eisler, Christopher Jeffrey, Jason Massey, Emily Vaughn, Andrew Mandel, Corey Glaze, Braydon Fuller, Ashley Wheeler, Ryan Foran, Alan Stoll and Josh Estes.
