Recruitment software provider, PageUp People, has appointed Daniel McDermott as its global chief marketing officer, based in Melbourne.

McDermott is now tasked with driving cultural transformation and developing marketing strategies globally. Prior to joining the vendor last month, he was a vice-president of marketing for CA Technologies, and was responsible for implementing a multi-channel marketing strategy for Australia and then Asia-Pacific.

McDermott has also worked in marketing for Ericsson, Damovo and RequestDSL, and was recognised for marketing and communications excellence by the Australian Marketing Institute.

In a statement, PageUp CEO, Karen Cariss, said his appointment came as the vendor evolved its product suite as well as embarked on the next phase of commercial growth. McDermott reports directly to the CEO.

“The shortage of skilled labour across the globe means companies are finding it even more challenging to find, hire and keep qualified talent,” she commented. “As we continue to maintain our focus on delivering one comprehensive software platform that spans the entire talent lifecycle, we look forward to Daniel’s tremendous passion for innovation and contribution to results-driven marketing.”

McDermott said he planned to apply “new, innovative marketing methods to foundational marketing principles” in order to further engage customers and drive additional brand value.

“I am excited to join PageUp and help position the brand for the next phase of its global growth as the company continues to develop and introduce new talent management solutions for the market,” he added.

PageUp’s headquarters are in Melbourne, and it also maintains offices in Sydney, London, new York, Hong Kong and Singapore.

Un-complicating multi-channel marketing: 5 actionable steps

There’s so much choice available that customers can pick and choose who they buy from and where, when, and how it happens. They want to discover, research, evaluate, and purchase on their preferred channel. Give them that option, and they’re more likely to choose you. That’s the whole point behind the multi-channel approach.

People in vegan houses shouldn't throw bacon

Picture this. You’re at a Gourmerican burger joint chomping a cheeseburger, when an outspoken vegan friend starts preaching that you’re killing the planet. Last week, that same vegan downed a pricey glass of pinot before their flight to a far-flung destination, armed with their strongest mossie repellant and first aid kit. Anything amiss?
