SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – March 18, 2022 – UserTesting (NYSE: USER), a leader in video-based human insight, today announced the appointment of Jeff Solomon as the company’s first Vice President of Sales and country manager for Canada. UserTesting customers in Canada include well known brands such as Air Canada Vacation, Canadian Tire Corp., WestJet and Hudson’s Bay. Companies world-wide trust the UserTesting Human Insight Platform to get fast feedback through video narratives on their products, messaging, and experiences, from consumers in their markets, or in other countries–to build empathy for their end-users so they can make more informed business decisions.
In response to increased demand by Canadian companies for human insight, UserTesting established a presence within the country in 2021. UserTesting now has employees across three Canadian Provinces that include British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario. In just nine months, the company has more than doubled its full-time employee headcount across Canada. The Canadian entity is now UserTesting’s third largest entity, behind the company’s U.S. and UK entities.
“Canada’s business climate is stable and growing, there are a lot of great opportunities for businesses looking to expand here. What often accompanies changes in business, even during times of growth, can be changes in customer needs. To sustain growth, companies need to understand these changes and know how to adapt to them,” said Solomon. “UserTesting can help companies quickly gather human insight to make those decisions that provide better overall customer experiences and meet the changing customer expectations to drive continued business growth and product adoption.”
