US-based talent experience platform HireVue has announced the appointment of Damon Pal as head of Asia Pacific.
The newly established role comes as the company sets its eyes on further APAC growth in line with the growing demand for artificial intelligence (AI) , video interviewing and assessment tools in the region.
As an experienced sales leader, Pal brings over 20 years of cross-market expertise to the role, leading sales divisions across Australia, New Zealand, North America and South East Asia.
In his most recent role, Pal held the position of Director of Enterprise Solutions in Australasia & SE Asia at HRS Group.
Prior to HRS, he held senior leadership positions at companies including Expedia Group, Epsilon and Ebay.
Growth in APAC has always been an important strategic goal for HireVue. This year, the company, that works with local brands including Lion and Ampol, experienced more than 11% Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) growth in the region when compared to 2021, with a total increase of 133% over the past four years (2018 vs 2022).
“While the APAC region’s recent border closures have had a significant impact on the local skills shortage, HireVue has been at the forefront, providing hiring managers and employers across the globe with end-to-end solutions that help them to keep pace with industry changes. One of the key outcomes has been an increased adoption of AI video interviewing and technologies across APAC, resulting in strong growth for HireVue,” said Anthony Reynolds, CEO of HireVue.
“Building on this momentum, we are delighted to be announcing Damon’s new role as part of our continued commitment to expansion within the region. Through his expertise, we are confident that Damon will play a key role in bringing HireVue to the next stage of growth on the business’ global expansion journey.”
“Expanding HireVue’s footprint in the Asia Pacific region presents an exciting opportunity and challenge to which I was particularly drawn. Helping businesses to find the best talent for their company while navigating the cultural nuances and local languages that exist within the region is my primary goal,” added Pal.
