SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SmartRecruiters, the Hiring Success Company, today announced the appointment of Adrian Ivanov as Chief Revenue Officer. Ivanov brings over 25 years experience in enterprise software applications and direct sales. He will be responsible for all revenue and customer-facing functions at SmartRecruiters, including Sales, Service, Support and Customer Success.
“We want the client to have a cohesive experience across teams, and that’s what Adrian will help us achieve,” said Jerome Ternynck, founder and CEO of SmartRecruiters. “Adrian brings terrific skills to our sales team from his experience at several growing companies where he was instrumental in providing the sales vision, strategy and leadership to help the organizations get to the next level. With Adrian at the Sales helm, we’ll be well-positioned to continue meeting our rapid growth goals. We’re very excited to have him on board.”
Prior to joining SmartRecruiters, Adrian spent the bulk of his career with market-leading enterprise software companies including Oracle, PeopleSoft and Vontu. He was also a founding executive team member at FinancialForce, where he led global sales and customer success, helping to grow annual recurring revenue from zero to over $100 million.
“As a sales leader I have an appreciation for the importance—and the challenge—of hiring strong talent, so I believe in SmartRecruiters’ fundamental value proposition,” said Ivanov. “I chose to join SmartRecruiters because of the people, the culture, the quality of the solution and our CEO’s vision for the future.”
Ivanov is also a firm believer that current SaaS subscription models align the interests of customers with those of the solution provider. He adds: “My first childhood job was delivering the local newspaper. Payment for the paper was voluntary, so I quickly learned how good service can translate into more money in my pocket.”
“SmartRecruiters has already proven itself to provide an outstanding product,” said Rajeev Batra, partner at Mayfield. “We are excited to be involved with its continued rapid growth and global roll out and know that Adrian, with his excellent and extensive experience scaling SaaS companies, will be an asset to the team at this exciting moment in the company’s history.”
SmartRecruiters’ Talent Acquisition Suite is used by high-performance organizations like Visa, Skechers, Atlassian, Equinox and Alcoa, which want to use recruitment to their competitive advantage. Unlike the first-generation applicant tracking systems it replaces, SmartRecruiters provides an amazing candidate experience, engages hiring managers in a collaborative hiring process and empowers recruiters with powerful tools to run the recruitment process.
