LAS VEGAS--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Simply Hired® today announced the appointment of Beth Prunier as Senior Vice President of Sales. Prunier joins Simply Hired from CareerBuilder and brings more than 20 years of experience in driving enterprise sales strategies and revenue growth. In her new role, she will guide global sales activities for Simply Hired as employers and agencies embrace the company's performance-based advertising platform to cost-effectively reach the most relevant candidates.
“Simply Hired is disrupting an industry with a new approach that provides recruiters with more flexibility, visibility and cost-effectiveness than any other employee sourcing solution, including job boards”
“Beth has a very successful track record for developing high-performance teams and taking new, disruptive solutions into markets that were ripe for change,” said James Beriker, president and CEO of Simply Hired. “Job search has evolved from newspaper classifieds to online job boards to job search engines such as Simply Hired. We saw this kind of transformation from expensive display advertising to performance-based search engine marketing play out in online advertising. We are in the early days of that same transformation in recruiting. Beth’s leadership and executive sales experience will be tremendously valuable as we continue to educate the recruiting industry on the value of performance-based advertising and help transform an entire industry.”
Prunier comes to Simply Hired as the company continues to innovate new ways to connect employers and candidates. Simply Hired provides 30 million unique visitors per month with immediate access to 8 million job openings across all job categories and industries, and was recently named one of Forbes Magazine's 10 Best Websites For Your Career for the second year running (see press release: Simply Hired Recognized for Top Search Experience, Superior Results). Independent, third-party research has shown that job search engines like Simply Hired drive a higher ratio of applications and hires for every dollar spent than traditional job boards. More than 19,000 employers currently use Simply Hired to boost recruiting performance and efficiency.
“Simply Hired is disrupting an industry with a new approach that provides recruiters with more flexibility, visibility and cost-effectiveness than any other employee sourcing solution, including job boards,” said Prunier. “Online recruiting is radically transforming as recruiters, who lost their resources in the 2008-2009 downturn, now have to fill more open positions - and do more with less. I'm incredibly excited to join James and the Simply Hired team to bring the power of performance-based advertising to employers and agencies around the world.”
Before joining Simply Hired, Prunier served as Vice President of Sales for CareerBuilder where she was responsible for sales strategies and revenue growth within the Enterprise Sales Group. This included managing both inside sales and field sales teams. In her role, she worked with Fortune 5,000 companies located throughout the East.
