Pax8 last week announced the promotion of Mary Gill as Chief Compliance Officer (CCO). Pax8 runs a cloud-based marketplace that allows MSPs and channel partners to source various SaaS applications and business services. In July, Pax8 added Rewst's robotic process automation solution to its marketplace. Earlier this year, CrowdStrike and Malwarebytes were added to the company's offerings.

Mary Gill is Pax8's New Chief Compliance Officer

The CCO role is a newly created position within Pax8. In her role, Gill will lead the creation and management of a global and best-in-class ethics and compliance program to support Pax8’s growth and business expansion, according to a statement from the company. Gill will report to Carrie Schiff, Chief Legal Officer.

Mary has a long and successful track record of designing, implementing and leading ethics and compliance programs for large multinational companies including AT&T, Lucent Technologies, Flextronics, and Splunk. She was also a partner in a law firm that founded to counsel international businesses on regulatory compliance.

Mary received her Juris Doctorate from Loyola University School of Law (Chicago); a Bachelor of Arts with honors in History from Southern Illinois University; and a Master of Laws in Environmental Law from Vermont Law School.

“Pax8 is fortunate to have a seasoned professional like Mary at the helm of our new compliance program,” said John Street, Chief Executive Officer at Pax8. “In an ever-evolving business landscape, maintaining the highest standards of ethics and compliance is paramount to our success. Mary's proven track record in developing compliance programs will play a leading role in ensuring we meet Pax8’s commitment to integrity and excellence as we enhance our relationships with all our stakeholders.”

“I’m thrilled to be joining the extraordinarily talented team at Pax8 and to have this opportunity to lead the design and build out of the company’s next-generation ethics and compliance program,” said Gill. “Our work will leverage the company’s strong culture of integrity and innovation as we create the infrastructure and management system needed to embed all necessary compliance controls into our day-to-day business operations.”

Pax8's Recent Growth

Pax8 recently hit a major milestone: Achieving $1 billion ARR. In February, Pax8 named Rob Rae Corporate Vice President of Communities and Ecosystems. In April, the company announced the appointment of David Powell as Vice President of Sales Strategy. In August, Craig Donovan was named Chief Experience Officer at the company.

At its Pax8 Beyond event in June, the company announced the next evolution of its cloud distribution marketplace — a system to match prospective managed services customers with MSPs. The system will acquire end customers via its vendor partners, as Jessica Davis reported. Here’s how that works. SaaS vendors typically have contact forms on their websites to capture information from potential direct SMB end-customers. But it’s not normally cost-effective for vendors to work directly with SMBs. Pax8 will work with vendors to replace those fill forms with a “Buy Now” button that will enable Pax8 to collect customer information. Then, an AI-driven matching system on the back end will match customer buyers to MSPs. Both customers and MSPs will have the ability to swipe left or right to choose or reject a potential match.

Pax8 has also made a number of recent acquisitions, including Microsoft Dynamics partner Bam Boom Cloud.
