GasBuddy’s New Chief Operating Officer



We’re looking forward to a great 2017 at GasBuddy, one that will deliver new products and features, new talented team members, a growing global community of users, and strong relationships with retail partners in the expanding gas station convenience store space.  

Part of what makes GasBuddy unique is the leadership that has helped us transition from our founding story to our growth story. As we kick off the year, I’m pleased to announce the promotion of Sarah McCrary to Chief Operating Officer.

Since joining GasBuddy, Sarah has proven to be an integral member of our executive team. She has improved cross-department communications, and streamlined process in our organization. As we enter 2017 with plans to launch in new markets, a new suite of advertising capabilities, and new product lines, Sarah’s experience will be invaluable.  

Sarah joined GasBuddy after more than a decade of business and product leadership in the payments technology arena. Most recently, she was the vice president of digital strategy at Heartland Payment Systems, one of the nation’s largest payment companies, recently acquired by Global Payments. While at Heartland Payment Systems, she was appointed chief executive officer of Heartland acquisition, Leaf, the creator of a mobile point-of sale-tablet; served Heartland’s chief executive officer and executive committee as director of strategy; and led product development of the company’s end-to-end encryption technology, Heartland Secure E3™.

In her new role as COO, GasBuddy will have a trusted leader that keeps us focused on customer success, strong revenue performance, and have a highly accountable company culture. Sarah will help our design and product teams develop roadmaps for increased speed to market, and ensure that operationally GasBuddy continues to deliver world class products that delight our customers. She’ll also work to enhance our culture of teamwork, experimentation, and innovation to help propel GasBuddy forward.

With a big year ahead of us, I know Sarah’s contribution will be substantial and we’re lucky to have her on our team.
