PremierXD is leading the retail transformation, helping brands create dynamic environments that draw people in and inspire them to become customers. Most importantly, with our global capacity and national presence, we scale brand experiences rapidly—and right.
In continuing to expand our services and help customers transform their physical spaces into delightful experiences, we are proud to announce a new infusion of $9 million from our existing investors, GarMark Partners and Tailwind Capital. Above all, we are excited to fuel additional growth to specifically enhance design services, manufacturing capabilities, and international operations across retail, food service and hospitality.
In addition, as part of this investment in our future, PremierXD is also proud to announce our new Executive Management Team: David Gallitano as Chairman and CEO, and Nathan Gill as President and COO will drive the next phase of the company’s growth.
David and Nathan bring the shared belief in cultivating a customer-centric culture. They welcome the opportunity to connect with customers and more importantly, to learn how our company can better meet customers’ needs and ultimately impact their businesses.
David Gallitano, Chairman & CEO
David brings extensive management experience from his tenure as former Chairman and CEO of Wellcare, an $18 billion provider of healthcare, and as former President and CEO of APW Ltd., manufacturer of technically engineered enclosures, thermal equipment, motors and electronic solutions. He also served as Chairman and CEO of Columbia National, and Executive Vice President of PaineWebber—where David had a broad portfolio of executive-level responsibilities including oversight of 20 operating companies (for example, a wheel manufacturer, oil and gas syndicator, uniform manufacturer, and regional department store). Before PaineWebber, David was President and CEO of General Electric Mortgage Capital Corporation, and a consultant at McKinsey & Company, where he advised mostly manufacturing companies. David has also been a member of the board of directors at Wild Oats Market, Inc. (OATS) (now owned by Whole Foods).
Nathan Gill, President & COO
Nathan most recently served as Vice President of Global Product and Innovation at Verifone, while leading a $300 million recurring-revenue business providing payment solutions to the retail, restaurant and hospitality industries. Prior to this role, Nathan founded and led Outcast, a national television network focused on reaching consumers outside the home. The company’s customers included the largest retailers and restaurant groups in the U.S. Nathan was also pivotal as President of Media Services in leading the turnaround of Move.com, which was acquired by News Corp for $950 million.
These new executive appointments, coupled with the additional investment from our investors, further capitalize on PremierXD’s long history of serving the most recognizable companies in the world.
We have nearly five decades of converting customers into sales for world-class retail brands. With over 500 employees, domestically and globally, we have the tailored manufacturing resources to offer rapid speed-to-market and robust economies-of-scale. And our commitment to our client-partners is continuous. Long before installation, and long after, we are there to guide, inspire and support, as we move with them into the future of retail.
