Webhire, Inc., a leader in talent management solutions, today announced that Susanne Bowen has been appointed Chairman of the Board. Bowen accepts this responsibility in addition to her current role as President and CEO of Webhire. Webhire’s expanded end-to-end talent management solution is designed to help companies attract, hire and retain the best talent.

“This is a vote of confidence in Susanne and is the direct result of Webhire’s recent progress,” said Webhire co-founder and board member Lars Perkins, Director of Product Management at Google. “Susanne joined Webhire in September 2003 and immediately demonstrated her leadership by guiding the company through a strategic planning process which identified the company’s unique strength: the ability to rapidly deliver products that help Human Resources organizations align their talent management process with organizational strategies. The board recognizes her leadership will continue to be a strong positive impact on the performance of the business.”

“It is clear that Susanne immediately identified Webhire’s core competencies and built a plan to leverage them,” said Debbie McGrath, President of HR.Com. “She took a strong, customer-focused organization to the next step by building one of the best management teams in the industry. As they continue to attract high quality talent and execute on their innovative strategy, it is no surprise that they have quickly built market momentum and become a vendor to watch.”

“Today, organizations need to think much more strategically about talent,” continues McGrath.

“Webhire provides customers with solutions that help them address key challenges across the entire employment lifecycle. Webhire’s approach to selecting partners and providing deep integration of services delivers a level of process efficiency that is hard to find in other solutions.”

Recently, Webhire has delivered innovative product and services enhancements such as Webhire Workforce IntelligenceÔ, an intuitive reporting and analysis tool that delivers precise, actionable metrics through personalized, graphical dashboards. Through partnerships with industry leaders Monster, AIRS and ePredix, Webhire announced a series of WebhireConnectÔ solutions that provide direct access to the top resources and tools customers need to source and select talent more efficiently.

Webhire’s accelerated growth and expanding customer base suggests that the new product offerings have hit the mark; Webhire has signed more than 200 contracts for various products since the start of the year. Northlich, TiVo, Inc., ITT Industries Gould Pumps, TDS Telecom/Metrocom, MTC Technologies, Inc., and Shawmut Design and Construction are some of the latest additions to their customer base of over 200, furthering Webhire’s penetration in financial services, telecommunications, and manufacturing, among other industries.

Lee Memorial Health System, VeriSign, and Amgen are examples of the companies who have continued to invest in Webhire’s solutions.

“Webhire is fortunate to be part of the growing talent management marketplace. One of the factors facilitating this growth is the war for quality talent. With that comes the challenge to provide our customers with the most innovative solutions available,” said Susanne Bowen, Chairman and CEO at Webhire. “Much of our success can be attributed to the knowledge and the feedback our customers continue to provide as we validate and deliver solutions that support their overall business goals. I am delighted with our progress thus far and anxious to continue our march to perform with excellence.”
