January 26, 2023
Company Triples its HQ Footprint and Welcomes Two Key Hires After Doubling ARR and Growing Customer Base by 117% in 2022
Boston, MA—January 26, 2022—Paperless Parts, the leading estimating and quoting platform for job shops and contract manufacturers, today announced that they have moved its company headquarters to 60 State Street in Boston, Massachusetts, more than tripling its footprint. In addition, they have announced two key executive hires: Alan Hawley has joined the company as Senior Vice President of Sales, and Jason Luce has joined as Senior Vice President of Engineering.
Hawley, who has led high-growth sales teams for companies like Validity Inc., Tomorrow.io, and Volt Active Data, brings to the company a strong operational background and track record for building and leading high-functioning, hypergrowth go-to-market teams. Hawley believes in an approach of creating highly specialized cross-functional teams focused on providing genuine value to customers and partners. Recently at Tomorrow.io, this approach helped Hawley grow ARR bookings over 10x while dramatically increasing customer count and expanding operations from North America into LATAM, EMEA, and APAC.
“It’s a tremendous honor to join the Paperless Parts team. I’m blown away by the company’s track record for delivering tremendous customer value. Every day I hear new stories from our field team about how we’ve changed the lives of those who own and operate job shops. It’s an incredibly rewarding place to work, and I look forward to driving more market adoption for our platform,” said Hawley.
Luce most recently served as SVP of Engineering at SessionM (acquired by Mastercard in 2019.) Prior to that, he was Head of Engineering for LogMeIn’s Emerging Products line of business. With proven expertise building platforms that enable rapid scale, Luce will be overseeing Paperless Parts’ continued platform innovation, including the development of its core quoting platform, as well as its emerging e-commerce functionality. In addition, given his experience in security and privacy, Jason understands the complex requirements for platforms that handle sensitive data.
“Currently, a quote is sent via Paperless Parts every minute, and more than 1 million parts have been uploaded into the platform. I’m excited to build on the company’s strong foundation, deliver on an ambitious product vision, and lead a team delivering solutions that radically improve the way job shop owners manage and grow their businesses,” said Luce.
In addition to Hawley and Luce, the overall Paperless Parts team grew by 86% in 2022 and plans for continued growth over the next 12 months. Paperless Parts’ new headquarters is a collaborative and central office environment that fosters teamwork and creativity.
“The past year has been one of tremendous growth on all fronts. A key ingredient in our ability to grow as quickly as we have has been the addition of exceptional leaders and a strong hybrid office culture that allows people to collaborate and innovate,” said Jason Ray, Co-Founder and CEO of Paperless Parts.
The office move comes on the heels of several major milestones in Paperless Parts’ history. In the past year, Paperless Parts has:
- Doubled its ARR
- Increased its customer base by 117%
- Launched several major capabilities, including support for multi-component nesting, more flexible Bill of Materials (BOM), collaboration with distributors, Product Manufacturing Information (PMI) on Model-Based Definition (MBD) files in the Part Viewer
- Been recognized as a Best Place to Work in 2023 by Built In
