Meet Our Leadership Team

Eric Vermillion, CEO

Eric Vermillion


Eric Vermillion, Helpshift leader and CEO, spends his days driving strategy and growth plans, developing high-performance teams, and producing oversized results—globally. No big deal. Before Helpshift, he was instrumental in advancing BlueCat to one of Canada’s most notable software exits and also helped grow revenue at NICE Systems to over $1B. When he’s not leading business transformation, this Purdue University graduate is traveling with his wife and two daughters, forever in search of a great view and an even better glass of red wine.

Ed Jamieson

VP of Global Sales

Ed Jamieson is a hunter and coach at heart, it’s that simple. At Helpshift, Ed is busy helping his team find and close new business.  Prior to joining Helpshift, he spent the last decade in various sales and sales leadership roles at NICE Systems and Ex Libris.  Ed spent 13 years as a high school wrestling coach where his core leadership skills were formed.  He will tell you that the most rewarding part of being a sales leader, or a wrestling coach, is seeing individuals accomplish their goals and do things they have never done before.  Great leaders figure out how to position both individuals and the organization for success.   In his leisure, he spends his time watching his three kids compete in eight different sports!  On the rare occasion he is not hunting new deals or at a junior high volleyball game, he spends his time fly fishing for trout and archery hunting for the great wapiti in his home state of Montana.

Samantha Pang

VP of Customer Success and Growth

Samantha Pang, VP of Customer Success and Growth at Helpshift, is fluent in English, Japanese, Cantonese, Mandarin, and Customer. Between this and her love for travel, she’s particularly well-suited for leading a team that supports over 450 customers globally. Sam is excited about ensuring clients aren’t just “happy” but have everything they need to fully realize long-term ROI. Before Helpshift, she spent six years at DeNA mastering the player experience and collecting a wealth of knowledge. If spare time were real, you’d find Sam on a yoga mat daydreaming about customers. Namaste.

Christine Dart

Global Head of Marketing

A creative at heart, Christine is a hybrid marketing professional with a love for both strategy and design. She believes in marketing that is practical, repeatable, UX-friendly, and data-driven. While those elements are each important, Christine believes the golden ticket in marketing is a strong sense of empathy… what pain points do our prospects and customers have, what does their buyer journey look like, does their experience with the brand feel amazing? When she’s not dreaming up new marketing concepts, you can find Christine climbing mountains with her dog, Hobbes, kayaking, snowboarding, dancing, or painting.
