January 28, 2022 – Daversa Partners, which helps build leadership teams for growth and venture-backed companies, has assisted in the recruitment of Andreas Lieber as chief business officer of Shippo in San Francisco. Daniel Marr led the search for Daversa Partners. “Building long-term, strategic partnerships with the platforms that enable today’s E-commerce ecosystem is paramount to achieving our vision for the future of shipping technology,” said Laura Behrens Wu, co-founder and CEO of Shippo. “Between his deep e-commerce knowledge, his decades-long career as a business development leader and his mastery for navigating large-scale, complex deals, I have no doubt Andreas is the right person to steer Shippo’s ecosystem growth in the years ahead.”
With more businesses using Shippo’s industry-leading platform than ever before, Mr. Lieber will play a key role in driving Shippo’s long-term revenue growth and execution. He will have global responsibility for business development, strategic partnerships, corporate development and other strategic growth and expansion efforts.
Previously part of the Postmates executive leadership team, Mr. Lieber was initially hired in 2019 as the company’s SVP of business and corporate development and later named general manager and interim CEO following Uber’s acquisition of Postmates in 2020. Throughout his career, Mr. Lieber has held a wide variety of leadership roles in high-growth companies including Pinterest, Groupon and Yahoo!.
“Shipping is an integral part of the e-commerce experience, and requires a sophisticated system of integrations and relationships to get a package from checkout to a consumer’s front door,” said Mr. Lieber. “The importance of a flawless and fully integrated shipping experience has never been more important than it is today — and the potential for future growth is tremendous. I look forward to working with our partners and stakeholders to help Shippo grow to its fullest potential.”
