Trent Innes has been appointed as the company's new CEO commencing May 2.
Innes, who was previously the managing director of Xero Australia and Asia, will spearhead Compono's next stage of growth into new markets and help employers' rapidly evolving needs as they deal with severe talent shortages and a more remote workforce.
"I am thrilled to be joining the team at Compono and look forward to enhancing the company's global operations and position as a leader in end to end talent solutions that realise the full potential of people," Innes says.
"The fundamentals are in place for the business, workforces are becoming increasingly remote and top talent is demanding more of their employers than ever. It's an environment where disruptors thrive and Compono has built a world-class technology platform that helps businesses hire and engage talent better than anyone else out there. Whilst their class-leading training and certification programs, including the use of virtual reality to deliver immersive learning experiences, can develop people exponentially."
"During my time at Xero, one of the biggest challenges we faced was finding and retaining the right people. As a leader, you quickly learn what is truly important, it's often not just about the right skills or experience, but about finding people with the right attitude and mindset for your organisation," Innes adds.
"Trent is a people-focused leader who understands the challenges many businesses are facing when it comes to attracting and retaining their workforce. I look forward to seeing him scale the company and bring our market-leading talent optimisation solutions onto the world stage," Compono co-founder Carl Hartmann says.
"Trent joins Compono at a time when there has never been a greater pace of change in our industry. His passion and experience leading technology companies with global ambition makes Trent the ideal choice to lead Compono through our next stage of growth."
