E-Commerce Royalty? Meet Jo Benson of Vortx…

September 10, 2013 | By Tim Payne

If there were such a title as “The Queen of E-Commerce” you would have to appoint Jo Benson to the monarchy. If you’ve met Jo, you know it’s really not that far-fetched to think this. Some little-known factoids about “the queen” is that before an e-commerce executive, she worked for IBM London as well owned and operated a Country House Hotel in the English Cotswolds. A perfect blend of technology and hospitality, and it shows.

Geoff Martinez and Tim Payne “guarding” Vortx’s COO, Jo Benson.

Jo and the Vortx staff put on a world-class e-commerce conference in Denver earlier this month. Vortx is the maker of AspDotNetStorefront e-commerce shopping cart platform that our team has developed more than 80 on-line stores.

I could not help but to write this blog after experiencing Jo’s hospitality first hand. Ok, enough royalty talk… time to get ready for Cyber Monday!
