Jobvite Appoints Kevin Nanney as Vice President of Product

Talented Silicon Valley Product Strategist Joins Social Recruiting Leader

BURLINGAME, CA--(Marketwire - Jan 23, 2012) - Jobvite, the leading recruiting platform for the social web, today announced the appointment of Kevin Nanney as vice president of product. Nanney will lead product strategy and design for the innovation leader in the multi-billion dollar online recruitment market. Nanney's proven success driving Software-as-a-Service product development will further propel Jobvite's momentum in the rapidly expanding social recruiting space.

Nanney most recently served as vice president of product management at Taleo, a talent management provider. In that role, he developed the product direction, strategy and roadmap for Taleo's SMB SaaS Talent Management Platform Suite. Prior to that, Nanney held product management leadership positions with Navis LLC and Oracle.

"Kevin's track record of success speaks for itself, and we're thrilled to have such a great leader and executive on board," said Dan Finnigan, president and chief executive officer at Jobvite. "His depth of experience in the recruiting solutions space, combined with his passion for innovation in social recruiting, will help Jobvite provide the most cutting-edge products on the market to our customers."

Nanney's appointment marks three top executive additions for Jobvite in less than two months, which support the company's focus on expansion and technology innovation. Since announcing series C funding of $15 million in 2011, the company has put its acceleration plan into action. The recruiting innovator has grown its customer base more than 600 percent in the past two years, and in December announced the hiring of Chief Marketing Officer Kimberley Kasper, also from Taleo; along with Chief Financial Officer, John Winkenbach, previously with Technorati Media.

"Jobvite is growing at a tremendous pace and they are well known in the industry for driving innovation in social recruiting," said Kevin Nanney, vice president of product at Jobvite.
