Industry veteran Petersen will oversee sales and relationship management at Q2
AUSTIN, Texas (Nov. 1, 2017)—Q2 Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:QTWO), a leading provider of secure, cloud-based digital banking solutions for community-focused financial institutions (FIs), announced today that longtime financial services, technology and sales market leader Christine Petersen has joined the company as chief revenue officer.
Petersen’s sales leadership and industry experience span more than 30 years, including more than 25 years in senior and executive leadership roles driving revenue and growth. As an executive at FIS and several of its subsidiaries for 18 years in a variety of roles, she most notably led as a 10-year senior vice president of client management and business development for global sales. Her experience, industry relationships and expertise complement Q2’s trajectory and vision and will help current and future Q2 clients realize new strategic growth opportunities.
Petersen began her career in financial technology sales for community banks and credit unions, and has expanded to exceptional performance in all areas of sales and client management for various emerging and groundbreaking technology solutions.
“Thirty years of driving enterprise growth for financial services companies has taught me the true value of creating meaningful customer relationships,” Petersen said. “I’m thrilled to help the Q2 team deliver for clients and I am particularly excited about the innovation Q2 is driving that delivers incredible agility, flexibility and growth for customers.”
Petersen’s hire complements recent Q2 sales and marketing team growth following Travis Arthur’s selection as vice president of marketing and Tom Sheehan’s appointment to vice president of sales. Arthur—a former vice president of marketing at Rackspace and 20-year technology marketing and sales veteran—will focus on driving increased demand, lead generation and overall revenue growth. Bringing more than 20 years experience working exclusively with FIs, Sheehan is responsible for counseling FIs seeking a long-term digital banking strategy and leads Q2’s team of sales strategists.
“The addition of Christine, Tom and Travis to our team complements Q2’s current leadership and will further our ability to deliver on our customer-focused mission backed by leading innovation across data, analytics and modern, open API-driven solutions to meet current and future customer needs,” said Odus Wittenburg, president of Q2. “Christine’s proven track record of driving growth, extensive strategic industry insight, proven relationships and expertise coupled with Travis’s marketing execution and Tom’s industry sales acumen opens new and exciting growth opportunities for Q2 clients and our partners.”
