Tom Larter has been appointed chief operating officer.

WithYouWithMe (WYWM) is an Australian tech startup, and veteran-led social impact company focused on reshaping the global employment landscape.

Larter, who has been with WYWM since 2017, was previously chief customer officer. Prior to this, he was general manager and enterprise account manager.

Larter brings to his new role over 13 years of personnel management as an infantry officer in the Australian Army and the previous five years of helping WYWM grow globally. Given WYWM's extensive network of veterans and strong relationships with military organisations, Larter's experience continues to be integral in driving the direction of the organisation.

"I'm deeply passionate about helping other veterans, and people globally, realise their full potential," Larter says.

"The current state of recruitment and talent management within the industry fails to employ people for their skills and experience.

"The ongoing focus on resumes, experience and long-term education is restricting access to great talent such as the veterans, military spouses and neurodiverse individuals accessing our free programs.

"I'm keen to help WYWM scale and drive positive social impact around employment."

Jason Laufer, who was WYWM's previous chief operating officer, now moves into the position of chief revenue officer.
