Since its $1.7 billion acquisition by EQT X fund in December 2022, Billtrust has been on the fast track building its executive team.
The latest hire for the now-private company is Scott Collins, who joined Billtrust as chief commercial officer, the Lawrenceville B2B order-to-cash software and digital payments firm announced March 14.
Collins will be responsible for global sales and new business development.
“Scott brings a wealth of experience to the role, and I am excited to welcome him to Billtrust,” CEO Sunil Rajasekar said in a statement. “At this key time in Billtrust’s growth, and when the urgency for companies to have more control over financial outcomes is greater than ever, Scott’s leadership in scaling sales organizations will be vital as we continue to increase our global presence.”
Collins, who most recently was chief commercial officer and global managing director for HireRight, described Billtrust as “a clear leader in helping companies get paid faster while enhancing the customer experience.” He added, “I couldn’t be more pleased to join Sunil’s team and work with our customers to help them realize long-term business value.”
Prior to HireRight, Collins held leadership positions at Equifax and LexisNexis. He earned a bachelor’s degree from Wittenberg University and an MBA from the University of Notre Dame.
Collins’ hire comes on the heels of the company’s other recent executive appointments, including Rajasekar as CEO, also in December 2022, followed by Grant Johnson as chief marketing officer and Robert Purcell as chief financial officer, both on Jan. 10.
Founded by Flint Lane, who remains on the board of directors, Billtrust provides its customers cloud-based software and integrated payment processing solutions in order to simplify and automate B2B commerce.
