Previously Mr. Wilkinson served as Chief Commercial Officer at content distribution giant 1WorldSync. For nearly two decades, Mr. Wilkinson drove 1WorldSync into new markets and industry verticals and became the dominant solution provider in grocery, consumer packaged goods (CPG), and non-regulated medical products.
Earlier this year, 1WorldSync was acquired by Battery Ventures for an undisclosed sum.
According to Venzee CEO John Abrams, "Better than anyone else, Dan understands the consumer-driven changes underway in retail trade today. His intellect, vision, and strategic bias has helped suppliers, brands, manufacturers, and retailers unlock operational efficiency on a global scale. Dan's industry knowledge - coupled with Venzee's advanced tech - will undoubtedly lead to accelerated growth for Venzee and more rapid retail market transformation."

As consumers, we continue to demand more efficient commerce. That core consumer demand drives retail trade participants to embrace intelligent, modern, and globally accessible platforms. In my view, Venzee is in the vanguard of those solutions able to satisfy retail trade needs today."
