)-- Fresh off the completion of its seed funding round, Procurated announced that it has hired the first members of its team to build the leading platform enabling public sector organizations to incorporate peer reviews in their supplier selection process. In recent weeks, the company has onboarded Senior Director of Operations and Strategy Jessica Einstein, Senior Director of Product Management Rebecca Moran and Director of Marketing, Alex Stonehouse.
Jessica Einstein has managed complex operations at three growing multi-sided marketplaces, LivingSocial; Curb, a rideshare precursor to Uber; and most recently, Collage.com; a platform where customers can order custom photo products.
Rebecca Moran joins Procurated after leading product management at Xometry, a Bethesda-based manufacturing marketplace. Earlier in her career, Moran served in technical project management and business development roles at Politico, a leading digital news outlet.
Procurated’s most recent hire, Alex Stonehouse, will lead marketing activities for the startup as it prepares for launch. Stonehouse helped launch RouteFifty, Atlantic Media’s state and local government digital publication, managed social media campaigns for brands like Budweiser and Jeep at digital media agency SocialCode, and led acquisition marketing at Xometry.
"I am very excited to welcome Jess, Becca and Alex to our team," said David Yarkin, founder and CEO of Procurated. "Their collective experience launching and growing products in multi-sided marketplaces is unparalleled, and together they will be instrumental in building a lasting culture at Procurated as we continue to grow."

Its technology enables purchasers to leverage the experiences of their peers to make more informed decisions when choosing high-quality suppliers. Procurated is headquartered in Washington, DC.
