Facilisgroup (PPAI 493664), the St. Louis, Missouri-based business services and technology firm serving the promotional products industry, has announced the appointment of Ashley McCune as president. The news was first released at noon today as a Breaking News alert.

McCune, a 2015 PPB Rising Star, will assume leadership of the SaaS company as Dan Rochette, founder, and Martin Weber, chief business development officer, officially retire. CEO Chuck Fandos, CAS, is moving to a new position as chief strategy officer at The Pebble Group, the UK-based parent company of Facilisgroup and British distributor Brand Addition.

McCune steps into the role of president from her former seat as chief operations officer, a position she has held since June 2019. During that time, she oversaw the successful launch of one of the company’s largest IT integrations, as well as unprecedented company growth. Prior to serving as COO, McCune was vice president of operations and marketing for more than five years where she played a vital role in propelling profitable company growth. She is a 16-year industry veteran and has been with Facilisgroup since its early days.

“During her tenure with Facilisgroup, Ashley has helped to innovate our technology, enhance our partner development and engage our community; all three factors have been critical to our success,” says Fandos. “Ashley leads with a natural brilliance and passion for excellence and has a laser-focused determination to exceed company goals. I am confident she will lead Facilisgroup to new heights!”

Chris Lee, CEO of The Pebble Group, adds, “Ashley possesses a remarkable understanding of what is required to position Facilisgroup to hit its financial and growth goals for 2020 and beyond.”

In her new leadership position, McCune will be supported by Matthew Lamb, executive vice president of partner development; Wendy Wells, vice president of supplier relations; and Liam Conlan, vice president of technology and the entire Facilisgroup team.
