Today marks a significant milestone in our company’s history as we proudly announce the appointment of Chano Fernandez as Co-CEO of Eightfold!
As a serial entrepreneur and leader, I believe that having the right leadership is paramount to our success, and it is, without a doubt, my most critical responsibility.
In any organization, whether it’s a startup or an established corporation, laying a strong foundation for growth is essential. This means making strategic decisions and surrounding ourselves with the best talent in the industry. As we stand at this critical inflection point in our journey, I recognize there is no better time than now to bring in an expert who can accelerate our ambitious goal of solving employment for the world.
Reflecting on how far we’ve come in the last seven years is nothing short of awe-inspiring. We started as just two individuals working out of a garage to a small enterprise working out of a slightly larger garage.
Today, we have transformed into a global enterprise, serving clients across 155+ countries, 28+ languages, and 19+ industries. We’ve helped companies reduce time to hire, reduce cost to hire, and increase diversity. We’ve helped companies make the talent transformation needed to stay competitive in their industry, succession plan to close critical business gaps, and redeploy and upskill existing talent in a tight labor market. We’ve guided our customers through skills-based talent transformation.
This journey, marked by hard work, dedication, and determination, has helped lay a strong foundation for the company. Now, we’re ready for prime time.
Hypergrowth is a rare experience. Few individuals have witnessed and contributed to such phenomenal growth in their careers. Deep HR domain expertise is even rarer. Fortunately, we’ve found the one person who possesses both.
Combine that with our AI prowess, and we’ve built an invincible force.
