LiquidHub Hires Stephen Racioppo as Chief Operating Officer, and Announces Amsterdam Office Addition

LiquidHub, a digital integrator that partners with businesses to improve customer engagement and drive growth, today announced the appointment of Stephen Racioppo as chief operating officer (COO), as well as the opening of its new European office in Amsterdam. LiquidHub has experienced rapid growth, doubling its revenues over the past three years and most recently completing a series B funding round, led by ChrysCapital, in which the digital integrator secured $53 million in investments.

Racioppo’s appointment, and the opening of a new office in Amsterdam, build on these milestones and continue to position LiquidHub as a leader in the emerging digital customer engagement sector. In his new role as COO, Racioppo will draw on his more than 35 years of experience at Accenture, where he led the financial services business in North America and Asia Pacific. At LiquidHub, he will guide the company’s consulting operations globally with a focus on business solutions and growth.

“Stephen has an incredible track record when it comes to building and leading businesses, and we are excited to welcome him to LiquidHub,” said Jonathan Brassington, CEO. “It’s a thrilling and challenging time to be working in technology and digital engagement, and I know Stephen’s insightful ideas, proven experience, and dedication to excellence will be an asset to the firm and our clients. His philosophy and approach to business will serve to strengthen LiquidHub’s culture of enthusiastic global teamwork, thought leadership, and pride.”

Racioppo’s experience in financial operations includes leading the $1.2 billion consulting, technology and outsourcing business for Accenture’s financial services clients, driving market making opportunities and spearheading the firm’s venture business. He has also served as COO of Sari Asher, LLC; COO of TLO; CEO of Connect Address; Chief Revenue Officer of Broadridge Financial Solutions and has started several businesses, including Racioppo Consulting.

“LiquidHub is establishing itself as a trusted partner when it comes to developing and implementing digital customer experiences in a cost-effective way,” said Racioppo. “I am excited to leverage my global professional services experiences to help ensure that all aspects of the firm’s operating model – from innovative solutions development to sales, service delivery, and holistic client relationships – are fully aligned.”

LiquidHub partners with global healthcare and financial services brands to deliver technology innovation and integration, a market that is projected to see continued growth as cloud, analytics, and mobile technologies remain top-of-mind for chief marketing and information officers alike. Its new office in the Netherlands strengthens its global operations and will support its growing number of clients in Europe.
