SYDNEY, Australia – October 18, 2022: HireVue, the global leader in video interviewing, assessments, and text-enabled recruiting tools today 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, Damon 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 percent Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) growth in the region when compared to 2021, with a total increase of 133 percent over the past four years (2018 vs 2022). The company  also recently hit a significant global milestone amassing 32 million interviews to date.

Anthony Reynolds, CEO of HireVue said: “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.

“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.”

Damon Pal added: “I am delighted to be taking on the role as HireVue’s Head of Asia Pacific as the company steps into its next phase of growth in the APAC region. 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.

“Having been on both the employer and candidate side of the HireVue coin, I have experienced the industry standard-setting technology that goes into eliminating bias first-hand. I am excited to grow the use of a platform that enables diversity and equity at this high standard across APAC, and look forward to working with the HireVue team, customers and partners to elevate the company’s presence in the region.”
