Jay Scannell

COO

Hi, I’m Jay Scannell, Chief Operating Officer (COO) for GiftCards.com, and I’d like to welcome you to our website. I am excited that I have been given the opportunity to join the GiftCards.com team and help them in shaking up the marketplace. We are transforming the experience of giving and receiving gift cards from a highly impersonal transaction, to a delivering a keepsake! Here you will find products and services that make it extremely easy for everyone – from folks like yourself on one side, all the way up to large corporations on the other – to personalize each card with a photo, private message, or both.

I am an accomplished executive with over 15 years of experience specializing in e-commerce/ m-commerce, customer relationship management, product fulfillment, and operational excellence. I was a member of the Class of 2011 Forty under 40. As an industry expert, I speak at conference events on various key topics that are essential to our business. That being said, I consider myself a perpetual student in this dynamic world we live in.

Prior to joining GiftCards.com, I held the position of COO at SkyMall, Inc. My wife, daughter, and I are excited to have recently relocated to the Northeast. We love adventures; in our free-time you will find us doing just about anything other than staying inside!
