CareerArc, a rapidly growing global leader in social recruiting and outplacement services, today announced the expansion of its leadership team to include former vice president of inside sales at ZipRecruiter, Jason Blais, as executive vice president of sales, and tech startup veteran Linda Souza as senior vice president of marketing. In addition, CareerArc’s chief marketing officer, Yair Riemer, has been promoted to president of the career transition services business. These appointments are part of a company-wide hiring push that has already increased CareerArc’s headcount by 20 percent in the past three months. Swift company expansion has been fueled by the recent $30 million growth equity round led by PeakEquity Partners to further product development, sales and marketing of its award-winning HR software-as-a-service solutions.
“Jason and Linda bring decades of sales and marketing leadership, strategic insights and proven experience in accelerating the market expansion of high-growth B2B tech companies,” said Robin D. Richards, chairman and CEO of CareerArc. “Yair’s appointment to president of our career transition services business will further focus and streamline efforts to rapidly increase our footprint in the outplacement market. With their added leadership, we are poised to achieve aggressive growth targets and gain market share in the ever-expanding HR tech market.”
