PALO ALTO, Calif., Aug. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — BraveNewTalent, the leading social learning career platform that hosts professional communities where people and organizations share knowledge around professional topics and helps them discover employment and career development opportunities, has hired the well-known HR and talent industry marketing professional Kevin W. Grossman.
Kevin will be joining BraveNewTalent this month as Director of Product Marketing and will be the company’s second hire in its new Silicon Valley Office. BraveNewTalent is based in London with a 25-person strong team but also has an office in Bangalore, India led by Dheeraj Prasad (former Head of Education for Microsoft).
Kevin will be heading up global messaging, product marketing and go-to-market strategy for the technology company that aims to change the face of the talent industry via online Talent Communities. Kevin will work closely with Director of Strategy, Master Burnett, in growing the US operations and developing the business offering for the US market. Kevin has over 12 years of direct HR technology marketing experience, working with hundreds of technology companies on their marketing strategy and helping them grow their businesses.
BraveNewTalent aims to address major problems in the talent employment market by increasing the efficiency of the global human capital market. Users create their own professional profile on BraveNewTalent then follow organizations, people and topics. An enterprise product offering, which has been in development since the company raised venture capital investment, is now beginning to be rolled out to the global marketplace.
BraveNewTalent Founder and CEO, Lucian Tarnowski, said, “Kevin is one of HR Tech’s most talented marketers and social influencers. His writing and thought leadership completely align with our vision of Talent Communities and the convergence of career development, learning and social technology. It is a great pleasure to welcome him into the BraveNewTalent family. The next five years will witness a revolution rather than an evolution in the role technology will play in the engagement, development and recruitment of talent in the global market. Kevin will work with the team in developing our marketing strategy and expanding our US operations so we can take the lead in the Talent Community space and encourage talent engagement and learning globally.”
Kevin W. Grossman commented, “I’ve been a big proponent of the convergence of social, career development and community, especially since I co-founded the highly popular Twitter chat called #TChat. True Talent Communities offer professionals and organizations the ability to connect, communicate and collaborate – not just around employer brands, but also around relevant topics for candidates, current employees, company alumni and the organization itself. I am very excited to be joining such an exceptional global team at BraveNewTalent that understands how social technology will connect and develop the emerging global workforce.”
