HiringBoss, Asia’s leading provider of HR and eRecruiting solutions, today announce a raft of significant new appointments to their Japanese business. This follows HiringBoss's recent announcement of a major series A funding from JAFCO, Asia’s largest investment firm, and is another confident move to establish their foothold on the HR technology market across the region.
Heading up this restructure of the Japanese business is Hiroshi Oshima, who takes up his appointment as Country Manager of HiringBoss Japan. Oshima joins HiringBoss from a key leadership role in CRM Sales at SAP Japan. He brings 13 years of sales, management and leadership in global IT industry, with an unparalleled understanding of how evolving technology can benefit Japanese business processes. Oshima is flanked by several additional new appointments to the Tokyo sales team, all seasoned professionals from the fields of software, HR and recruiting.
HiringBoss CEO and founder, Bernie Schiemer, today commented, “For too long, the HR tech landscape here in Japan has been dominated by complacent, over-priced and out-moded software providers. The HiringBoss model of affordable, intuitive and results-oriented solutions, that puts the end-user first, is a disruptive force to the status quo here in Japan and across Asia. We’re gaining notoriety in the marketplace and this is directly translating into more customers and a greater pull in attracting the best talent. Our talented new colleagues in Japan are the ideal team to take things to the next level. I have every confidence that our new Japan Country Manager, Hiroshi Oshima, has the vision to make this happen”.
HiringBoss was conceived and built in Japan, with a successful sales team already operating on-the-ground at their Tokyo offices. HiringBoss is currently being leveraged by a number of domestic and international clients of various sizes, across a range of industries in Japan. The HiringBoss client list in Japan currently includes BMW Finance, Softbank, Tata Consulting and Mitsubishi Fuso. The new management team there will be focused on expanding this client base yet further.
One of Oshima’s key objectives will be to continue the growth of his sales and support team and drive the launch of 2 new products, StaffingBoss and HrBoss, in the Japanese market. Oshima commented, "I can’t imagine a more exciting or pivotal time to join HiringBoss. My colleagues have done a great job in laying the groundwork for success and I look forward to applying my experiences to propel the business into the next phase of growth. HiringBoss is a breath of fresh air to the Japan market place and I am personally extremely excited to see how far we can take things."
