A New Chapter for SmartRecruiters: Leading the Charge for the Future of Hiring

SmartRecruiters community,

As the new CEO of SmartRecruiters, I can’t overstate how excited I am about the future of our company. As we embark on this new chapter together, I’m honored to join an amazingly talented team that’s committed to revolutionizing the hiring landscape and empowering talent acquisition teams to achieve their goals.

In my career,  I’ve had the privilege of leading teams through transformative growth, driving innovation, and navigating complex and shifting market dynamics. I’m incredibly excited to bring that experience and leadership to SmartRecruiters as we continue to break down barriers and redefine what it means to achieve Hiring Success®.

As we look ahead, we’re more committed than ever to our mission of making hiring easier and helping people find jobs they love. That’s why I’m thrilled to announce our new vision: “Hiring Without Boundaries™.” This game-changing approach is designed to help organizations break free from traditional hiring barriers, create more inclusive and efficient processes, and prioritize the candidate experience.

At SmartRecruiters, we are obsessed with breaking down barriers to Hiring Success. 

Our vision of Hiring Without Boundaries is built on the following pillars:

  • Inclusivity: We’re passionate about fostering diverse, skilled workforces that drive innovation and fuel growth while identifying and mitigating unconscious biases in the hiring process.
  • Technology: We harness the power of cutting-edge technology to streamline the hiring process and dramatically improve the quality of hires.
  • Data-Driven Insights: We champion data-driven decision-making, empowering organizations to make more informed, objective, and strategic hiring choices.
  • Candidate Experience: We prioritize candidate experience, building strong employer brands that help attract and retain top talent.
  • Continuous Improvement: We cultivate a culture of learning and adaptation, ensuring our customers stay ahead of industry trends and best practices.

It’s clear that Hiring Without Boundaries is the future of talent acquisition, in fact, it’s one of the core reasons I decided to join SmartRecruiters. By embracing this vision and bringing it to life, we will enable organizations to attract the best talent, drive innovation, and remain competitive in today’s rapidly changing business landscape.

As we move forward, I’d like to thank Jeremy Johnson, SmartRecruiters’ CFO, for his amazing job as Interim CEO,  leading the company through change and delivering our most successful year yet. I’m grateful to our founder as well, Jerome Ternynck, who transitioned to the role of Chairman of the Board and continues to provide invaluable guidance and leadership.

Together, we’re setting our sights on the future of hiring. I look forward to working closely with our incredible team, customers, and partners as we break new ground, redefine Hiring Success™, and bring our vision of Hiring Without Boundaries™ to life.

Thank you for joining us on this exciting journey. Stay tuned for more updates as we continue to innovate and transform the world of HR and talent acquisition with you!

Warm regards,

Michael DeSimone

CEO, SmartRecruiters
