WOBURN, Mass. – December 15, 2008 – Demandware, developer of the only enterprise-class, on-demand ecommerce platform, today announced the appointment of Scott Dussault to Chief Financial Officer.

In his new role, Dussault is responsible for all the financial and administrative operations of the company.
"We’re extremely pleased to bring Scott on board during this exciting time for the company. The financial model of on-demand software is becoming more attractive to retailers who need a reliable ecommerce platform, but don’t want to incur the hefty up-front costs typically associated with it.
