What is your background and how did it bring you to Talroo?
I have more than 20+ years in sales and sales management experience. I was introduced to the online recruitment advertising industry in 1999 when I started working for Monster, and was there for 10 years. I joined Beyond/Nexxt in 2011 and was there for 5 years. It was in this role that I worked alongside Cindy Songne, our current VP of Talent Attraction Solutions at Talroo. When she moved to Talroo, I became familiar with the company and was happy to make the move when she began to create an enterprise team.
