Boston, MA (PRWEB) May 27, 2010
Bullhorn ®, the global leader in On Demand, front office staffing and recruiting software announced the addition of Chris Lalonde as vice president of technical operations and infrastructure. Lalonde will lead efforts to strengthen and expand the Bullhorn platform in support of the company's rapid international growth.
"Building and scaling world-class platforms is something that has motivated me throughout my career," said Lalonde. "The recent launch of the Bullhorn Marketplace positions Bullhorn within the cloud-computing technology space. This in turn raises the bar for platform infrastructure scalability, but opens the door to transforming how clients utilize technology, similar to what Amazon, Google and others have done."
Lalonde comes to Bullhorn with an award-winning background, comprised of serial successes driving technology developments and operations for a variety of startups, government agencies and Fortune 500 corporations. He has held senior executive positions with companies including Apptera, Meraki, Quigo and online auction powerhouse, eBay.
"As we expand globally and roll out new innovations, it's critical that we continue investing in the core Bullhorn platform," said Geoff Greene, Bullhorn's CTO. "Chris' extensive experience building mission-critical systems will help ensure Bullhorn continues delivering world class up-time and new innovations to our clients."
Lalonde earned numerous patents and awards, including the Directors Award from the United States Secret Service. He holds a bachelor of mechanical engineering with a concentration in robotics from Carleton University.
