Clarus Commerce Appoints Former Priceline Executive as CTO

ROCKY HILL, CT--(Marketwired - July 17, 2017) - Clarus Commerce announced today the appointment of Giri V. Nathan as its Chief Technical Officer. Nathan brings an impressive resume that spans nearly three decades of experience in engineering and software development. Giri has spent most of the past two decades in prominent positions at The Priceline Group, most recently as Vice President of Engineering, Architecture, and Operations.

From 1998, when he joined as a small startup, as its 90th employee, until 2016, Nathan helped build the organization into a multi-billion dollar operation, running several major platforms. With Clarus Commerce's rapidly expanding business and continued focus on building unique loyalty programs for brands, Nathan will be uniquely positioned to lead the technology innovation that will successfully position Clarus Commerce for accelerated future growth.

"Clarus Commerce has seen tremendous growth in our business as more top brands launch premium loyalty programs on our platform," Clarus Commerce CEO Tom Caporaso said. "Along with his experience and expertise in technology, Giri comes to us with an extensive background in building and scaling technology organizations, which will be crucial as we manage the incredible amount of interest in our offerings."

In addition to his nearly 18 years at, Nathan served as Chief Technical Officer of Cashpath Financial, where he oversaw and advised on the creation of a disruptive mobile app, which aided consumers down a path of financial health. Furthermore, he has served as an advisor to multiple organizations, supporting them in the process of creating innovative and successful technology platforms.

Nathan said that he is very excited to join Clarus Commerce and came on board because he instantly saw the tremendous potential in not only the robust technological offerings that Clarus had created thus far, but the passionate people behind the technology.

"Clarus Commerce, over time, has grown from a small startup, focused on offering shopping benefits to consumers, to a precipitously expanding organization, focused on cultivating more loyal customers for brands," Nathan said.

"Having the ability to create a program which can develop true loyalty is a very valuable tool in a time when brands are scrambling to keep their customers from leaving for the competition. From the very start I saw that the growth potential for our technology is seemingly unlimited, and with the talent we already have embedded here, it became abundantly clear to me that there is a solid foundation for scaling this into something truly special."
