Technology & Staffing Industry Leader, Brandon Metcalf, Joins ThisWay

Global as Chief Strategy Officer

Metcalf will be leveraging his strategic, operational and technical expertise as the company gains traction in both enterprise and staffing segments.

ThisWay Global, the industry leader in AI matching technology, today announced that veteran technology and staffing executive Brandon Metcalf has joined the company as Chief Strategy Officer.

Prior to its acquisition in March 2018, Metcalf was the President and Founder of Talent Rover, a sales, recruiting and operating software platform built for the global staffing industry. He led the organization through explosive growth being ranked as the 9th fastest growing software company in America in 2017 (Inc 500), supported customers in more than 30 countries and managed global operations in 8 countries. A key to the success was winning major industry-leading customer relationships with Adecco Group and True Blue, as well as developing global partnerships with Salesforce, Accenture and others.

“I was introduced to ThisWay shortly after the acquisition of Talent Rover and was deeply impressed with their technology, focus, and approach. They’ve spent years perfecting their ontology-based matching and I’m excited to guide them through their rapid expansion.” said Metcalf.

“Search and match is mission-critical software for every employer and staffing firm. ThisWay’s suite of AI and matching technologies are unlike anything I’ve ever seen. At Talent Rover, I was always on the hunt for a partner who truly had search and match technology that not only worked but was fast, accurate and removed bias. It would have been a game changer if we had a partnership and integration with ThisWay” said Metcalf.

“Brandon’s proven track record and focus on customer success, global expansion, and successful go-to-market strategies will accelerate and scale our ability to provide best-in-class matching and de-biasing technologies to more global customers. Our team is excited to welcome him on board as we move to our new headquarters in downtown Austin, Texas,” said Angela Hood, CEO & Founder.
