Online car-shopping site Edmunds has promoted Stephen Felisan to chief technology officer, and in his new position, he will lead Edmunds’ 152-member technology organization.
Felisan, who was Edmunds’ director of engineering before his promotion to vice president of engineering and operations and eventually to his most recent role as chief information officer, will oversee all engineering functions, cloud and security operations, data statistics, and enterprise services.
Prior to starting with Edmunds 14 years ago, Felisan was CIO at LearningFramework Inc. He also served in different technology roles at House of Blues Entertainment Inc.
The Edmunds technology team helps create and maintain what the company describes as “one of the largest and most popular automotive research sites in the world.”
Edmunds says its engineers are “data-driven, agile and forward-thinking” and develop various cutting-edge technologies.
The company plans for Felisan to “strengthen and elevate the company’s culture of engineering excellence” in his new role and to deliver infrastructure supporting Edmunds’ mission of simplifying the car buying process.
“We can't think of a better person than Stephen to lead our technology team into the future,” Edmunds president Seth Berkowitz said in a news release. “Aside from having a proven track record of success at Edmunds, he’s also an excellent leader and dedicated to our mission of creating the fastest and easiest place to shop for a car online.”
