NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - November 10, 2016) - Fiverr, the world's largest marketplace for creative and digital services for entrepreneurs and small businesses, today announced it has hired Serge Verdoux as its new vice president of business development.

"Adding someone with Serge's background, leadership and expertise promises to create all kinds of new opportunities for our rapidly growing community to take their next big step.

It was there that he led his team to strategic global partnerships and launched the Audible Innovation Lab and Enterprise offering. Prior to Audible, Verdoux held positions at Expedia and American Express, focusing on strategic growth and customer acquisition.
"Fiverr has set out to help entrepreneurs achieve their goals, and I could not be more proud to be a part of the team turning that dream into a reality," said Verdoux. "Fiverr's growth has been phenomenal and I look forward to expanding the company's opportunities even further."
