GetResponse Email Marketing Adds eBay’s Stan Van Rensburg as Global Sales Director

The move signals aggressive plans for expansion into new international markets.

With the appointment of Stan Van Rensburg, GetResponse Email Marketing continues to position itself for bold expansion.

“Stan comes to us with a strong track record of sales management success in international markets,” said GetResponse Founder and CEO Simon Grabowski. “His experience is a perfect match for our growth initiatives currently underway.”

About Stan Van Rensburg

Most recently, Stan led the revamping of eBay’s UK motors department, where he formed a new sales team in a predominantly customer service environment. The move transformed the lagging department into a sales leader, achieving consistent month-over-month growth.

The eBay organization first noticed Stan’s talent when he was O2 SOHO sales manager at Telefonica, where his startup sales team managed a customer base of tens of thousands of accounts, decreasing churn rates and implementing cross-selling strategies.

Beginning his career at Xerox South Africa, Mr. Van Rensburg combined innovative ideas with traditional sales methods to expand the sales pipeline and increase conversion. From there he moved to call-center management at Conduit, marketing arm of Bord Gais, where his team won Best Sales or Telemarketing Campaign at the 2009 CCMA awards, followed in 2010 by CCMA Sales Manager of the Year and Telesales Manager of the Year.

“GetResponse has an unlimited worldwide market for its email marketing services, and we’ll be exploring those aggressively,” said Stan Van Rensburg. “I’d like to assure our current customers that we’ll also maintain our focus on providing them with 5-star customer support to ensure their success. Those two objectives form the backbone of our sales and marketing strategy.”
