SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Personal Capital, the leading online financial advisory firm, today announced Eric Weiss as its new Chief Marketing Officer. Weiss will lead Personal Capital's marketing strategy as the firm accelerates growth, now surpassing $3 billion assets under management and following a $75 million fundraise this year.
"Personal Capital is changing the way that Americans manage their money, and we're seeing rapid growth as more families look to us for comprehensive wealth management services and a suite of free financial tools," says Bill Harris, CEO of Personal Capital. "Eric's management experience scaling rapid growth tech organizations make him the perfect leader to expand our reach to even more individuals in need of sound, holistic financial advice."
Bringing more than 20 years of experience primarily in high growth cloud services, Weiss was most recently the SVP of Marketing at Intermedia, where he contributed to the company's tripling of revenue, EBITDA and product offerings and recent acquisition of the company. He joined Intermedia by way of Axcient, which, during his tenure, became the #1 fastest growing IT Security company nationwide, according to Inc magazine. Previously, Weiss held the role of global SVP marketing with GreenRoad, where he led rebranding and helped increase booked revenues from $1M to $30M, and Covad Communications where he grew revenue by over $50M. Weiss also held various senior management roles at public companies including Hewlett-Packard, Macromedia (Adobe) and Dialogic.
"I'm thrilled to join Personal Capital as the firm disrupts the traditional wealth management industry," said Weiss. "Consumers today are demanding more technology-driven solutions for managing their money, yet there is still a huge value in the guidance provided by a real human around more complex financial planning. The Personal Capital team has found the perfect combination of advanced financial management technology and the expertise of licensed financial advisors to provide advice that isn't just one-size-fits-all."
Weiss' marketing philosophy is to deliver integrated marketing campaigns that leverage the latest cutting-edge marketing technology and are aligned closely with sales, product and corporate strategy.
