Coupa Founder Joins Old St Labs

Big news from London’s South Bank. The founder of Coupa Software, Noah Eisner, has joined the Old St Labs advisory board and will be helping to plan the growth of our business as we launch into the future!

As well as founding Coupa, who successfully IPO’ed in October (prompting me to question if procurement software had finally become sexy), Noah has deep experience in the enterprise technology space having held leadership positions at both Oracle and Amazon.

Noah will be working closely with our product and marketing teams to ensure our products perfectly fit the needs of our market and that we are able to explain the benefits and value our products deliver in a elegant, engaging and pragmatic manner.

Speaking on Noah’s appointment Old St Labs CEO Mark Perera said; “We are thrilled to have Noah onboard. Noah is a visionary technologist in the enterprise Software-as-a-Service space and his success with Amazon Web Services, Oracle and in founding and growing Coupa Software from an idea into the number one e-procurement solution in the world speaks for itself.”

“Old St Labs has a bold vision to radically change the way businesses interact with their suppliers” Eisner said. “Many in the procurement sector lack visibility over their supplier relationships and the key to innovation both now, and in the future, is better management of these relationships. This will give businesses the agility and competitive advantage they need. I’m excited to be working with a company that understands the issues the sector faces and I’m thrilled to be joining Old St Labs at this point in their journey.”

We are thrilled to have Noah onboard and working with us he is a huge asset to our business and with our San Francisco office now open he’s also our new neighbour.

Welcome onboard Noah!
