HireIQ has developed an innovative solution to the persistent problem of inefficient candidate sourcing, especially in the early stages of the hiring process. I'm delighted to be a part of the team.

HireIQ Solutions, Inc., the company that improves the hiring and recruiting process for customer-facing organizations, announced today the appointment of Matt Pietsch as its vice president of sales. With over twenty-five years of consultative sales experience – the last fifteen of which have been in the human capital management market – Pietsch adds even greater depth to HireIQ’s senior leadership team.

In his new role, Pietsch will extend his proven sales track record by introducing HireIQ’s suite of hiring optimization products to enterprise organizations that commonly use telephone interviewing as part of their hiring process.

HireIQ’s hiring optimization solutions help companies increase the effectiveness and efficiency of the hiring process, especially those with high-volume hiring requirements such as contact centers, retailers, hospitality businesses and others. The company’s flagship product, InterviewIQ, uses web and voice response technologies to guide applicants through an automated virtual interview, which can be subsequently reviewed and scored by a hiring manager or recruiter. HireIQ’s novel approach means that recruiters are more effective since they no longer need to spend unproductive time trying to reach applicants in order to conduct a phone interview. Companies using HireIQ report improved time-to-hire, improved hire quality and increased post-hire operational performance.    

“Matt’s deep knowledge of the human capital management market and proven sales track record make him the ideal person to accelerate HireIQ’s growth,” said Joe Gruca, senior vice president of sales for HireIQ. “His experience with market leaders such as SHL and Management Recruiters International gives him a keen understanding of the sourcing and hiring issues enterprises face so that he can clearly and effectively articulate solutions to address those issues. We’re very excited to have Matt on board.”

Matt brings over 25 years of international sales and sales leadership experience from a broad range of industries. A solutions sales professional, he spent the past 15 years in the human capital space, having sold products and managed teams throughout the entire talent management lifecycle, including recruiting and selection, RPO/BPO, talent assessment, organizational development and succession planning tools. He most recently served as enterprise business development manager with SHL, the global leader in talent measurement. Prior to SHL, he was vice president of global sales for Management Recruiters International (MRI), the world’s largest recruitment firm, where he was responsible for selling recruitment project initiatives and RPO services to some of the world's largest companies.

“HireIQ has developed an innovative solution to the persistent problem of inefficient candidate sourcing, especially in the early stages of the hiring process,” said Pietsch. “By using technology to address the cumbersome, time-consuming and costly telephone screening process, HireIQ satisfies a previously largely unfilled market need and delivers real business value to its clients. I’m delighted to be a part of the HireIQ team.”
