The cutting-edge hiring marketplace is excited to welcome new leadership as it continues to disrupt the recruitment industry
NEW YORK, NY, March 4, 2020 - Vettery - the data-driven hiring marketplace that matches highly qualified and individually vetted candidates with top companies – is pleased to announce the appointment of Josh Brenner as its new CEO. Previously serving as the company’s Chief Product Officer, Brenner brings over 12 years of experience in building innovative products and growing businesses at companies such as Intuit, TiVo and Nomi. Brenner’s expertise with technology-driven products enables him to further position Vettery as a leader in the disruption of the recruitment industry.
In his new position, Brenner will lead the company in its transition to a product-first platform with a tech-enabled high-touch experience, bringing hiring into the new decade. Brenner plans to leverage Vettery’s advanced technology, proprietary machine-learning algorithms, and scale to further differentiate themselves from all other hiring options.
Founded in 2014, Vettery is the recruiting industry’s leading hiring marketplace and has shown continuous growth, partnering with over 15,000 companies from innovative startups to established Fortune 500 companies across North America, UK and Ireland to help them build best-in-class teams. Vettery is part of the Adecco Group, forming the most complete solutions portfolio in the industry which provides HR solutions throughout the work-life cycle.
“My passion and experience is all about helping businesses be more successful, and building a strong team is the hardest and most important challenge for any business to solve,” said Brenner. “Staffing and recruiting is roughly a $400 billion global industry, and the vast majority is happening via off-line transactions. Having felt the pain on both sides — hiring and job-seeking — I'm confident our marketplace model, centered on transparency and efficiency, will change the way companies hire.”
The company’s renewed focus under Brenner is already making a difference for companies and job-seekers. Monthly job placements are up over 50% and time-to-hire for companies using the platform has been reduced by over 20%. It has also made its mark as a thought leader and industry harbinger for what the future of hiring means.
“With our acquisition of Vettery in 2018, we’re beyond thrilled to continue breaking the mold of the ‘traditional’ hiring process and pushing boundaries of how we can bring digital innovation to the recruiting industry,” said Chris Cho, Global Portfolio Head at Adecco. “We were extremely impressed with Josh's prior track record and the impact he's had on the business in his time as CPO. We're excited to have him leading the team to take Vettery to the next level.”
