General Electric, eBay veterans appointed to Speed Commerce board

Speed Commerce Inc. has appointed Alex Constantinople and Scott Guilfoyle to the Richardson-based e-commerce firm’s board of directors.

The appointments expand the board to eleven members, eight of whom are independent. Guilfoyle and Constantinople will serve as members until the company’s 2014 annual shareholders' meeting, at which time they will stand for election by the shareholders.

"We welcome Scott and Alex to the board and look forward to working with them," said Chairman Timothy R. Gentz in a news release.

"We believe that Alex Constantinople's extensive branding, marketing and communications experience as CEO of The OutCast Agency and Scott Guilfoyle's tenure as CTO of PayPal and involvement in eBay's acquisition and integration of GSI Commerce, will be of great value to the company,” Gentz said.

Constantinople and Guilfoyle have been designated as Class III directors and will be nominated by the company, together with current directors Stephen F. Duchelle and Frederick C. Green IV, for election to the board at the 2014 annual shareholders meeting, at which time the size of the board will be reduced to ten members.

Constantinople, CEO of The OutCast Agency, previously served the communications for business and editorial divisions of Conde Nast's Wired magazine and its digital properties. She also spent 15 years at General Electric, where she served in marketing and communications roles for GE Corporate and NBC.

While at the network, she served as vice president of NBC News as well as corporate communications director and head of publicity for the “Today” show.

Guilfoyle joined eBay in 2008 as chief technology officer of PayPal in charge of the PayPal payments platform operations. Before eBay, Guilfoyle served as chief information officer of LendingTree from 2007 to 2008 and as chief information officer of ecommerce and card services at Bank of America from 2002 to 2007.

Speed Commerce Inc. provides a platform of e-commerce services and distribution solutions to retailers and consumer goods manufacturers. More information is available at www.speedcommerce.com.
