By enabling brands to operate their own loyalty programs, qiibee is making the loyalty landscape more efficient and user-friendly, enhancing the experience not just for brands, but for customers as well. The team has built something special and I am privileged to be a part of their growth.”
Cracchiolo brings with him almost 20 years of experience in business development, strategy, and client management, having worked across the technology, healthcare, enterprise, and retail divisions of American Express since he joined the company in 2002.
“Chris has a long and distinguished track record in business development and client management across multiple business units at American Express. He has led numerous high-performing teams responsible for managing and growing both domestic and global relationships with some of American Express’ largest and most strategic partners. In addition, he has played a critical role in bringing innovative new products to market, including Bluebird, a co-branded banking alternative solution in partnership with Walmart, and Serve, the company’s next-generation payments platform. We believe his expertise will be invaluable to qiibee as we expand into different markets worldwide.”
