San Mateo, Calif., December 8, 2014 — Jobvite, the comprehensive recruiting solution for the world’s fastest growing companies, today announced the appointment of David Lahey as Vice President of International and Paul Turner as Vice President of Customer Success. The two executives will serve to strengthen the company’s global expansion and customer growth following recent momentum.
“Continued investor commitment and market demand have accelerated our growth,” said Jobvite CEO Dan Finnigan. “The competition for quality talent is fierce worldwide and companies need an end-to-end recruiting solution to capture this talent. As we enter new markets overseas, we’ve been given the opportunity to support more companies to acquire top talent and scale. David’s and Paul’s leadership and industry expertise will be instrumental in setting the groundwork for Jobvite’s future.”
David Lahey joined Jobvite four years ago to lead Customer Success and has since significantly expanded the size and capability of the Customer Success team and operation. Previously, Lahey led sales and marketing as Executive Vice President at SpeedTax and held executive positions at Sage Software, ACCPAC, and Lahey Software, which he also founded. Lahey brings more than 30 years of software leadership to his new role as Vice President of International. In this new position, Lahey will head up Jobvite’s efforts to grow its international business as it expands aggressively into new markets in Canada, EMEA and APAC.
“This is a significant step, and the beginning of the next chapter for Jobvite,” said David Lahey. “It has been a privilege to work and participate in the company’s growth over the last four years and I’m looking forward to playing a part in molding our future.”
Paul Turner comes to Jobvite from Coupa Software as the VP Global Customer Support. Prior to Coupa, Paul served as VP Global Technical Services at Terracotta and was the head of Professional Services for Jobvite customer Yodlee. Paul is a Silicon Valley veteran, having worked for over 20 years at startups and midsized companies. He is an engineer by training, with a Masters in Computer Science from the University of Rochester, and brings a range of skills—from experience as a developer, architect, sales engineer and in customer-facing technical services—to his work at Jobvite.
“Jobvite has a strong track record of great customer service and this is an exciting time to join the company,” said Paul Turner. “This role gives me the opportunity to support a diverse set of global leaders, and I’m looking forward to delighting and providing exceptional service to each and every one.”
Jobvite’s international customer roster includes companies like Switzerland’s Education First, Denmark’s Saxo Bank and Canada’s Morneau Shepell. The company aims to focus its attention on these regions in addition to others as it accelerates its global growth in 2015.
