PeopleStrategy Inc.®, a full-service brokerage and provider of comprehensive, cloud-based human capital management (HCM) solutions, today announced Jerry Tasker as the new chief client officer to create exceptional experiences for its clients.

He spearheaded successful client implementation experiences in enterprise resource planning and has a detailed background implementing core HR, payroll, benefits, and learning solutions at organizations such as AnswerThink, 121g, and Rimini Street.

As chief client officer, Tasker will improve implementation processes and cut the time it takes before a client begins using the software.
