Bullhorn’s Peter Linas Appointed as Executive Vice President, Corporate Development and International
30 October 2017, London – Bullhorn, the cloud computing company that helps staffing and recruitment organisations transform their businesses, has promoted Peter Linas to Executive Vice President, Corporate Development and International.
Linas has spent over 20 years working in the recruitment industry and held several senior director roles before joining Bullhorn as International Managing Director in 2009. Since then, he has been responsible for leading Bullhorn’s booming growth at an international level. As a result, Bullhorn International contributes significantly to the company’s annual revenue, with offices in the UK, EMEA, and APAC.
In his new role, Linas will continue to head up Bullhorn’s international business, but will now also focus on highlighting and building relationships with potential acquisition opportunities. He recently played a critical role in the acquisition of Connexys, a leading provider of recruitment technology and ATS solutions across mainland Europe, in order to drive Bullhorn’s expansion into the region.
Art Papas, CEO of Bullhorn, comments: “Peter lives and breathes Bullhorn’s mission and our core values, ensuring that all of our international customers and employees have an incredible experience as we’ve continued to grow each year.”
“The fantastic corporate culture of our international business is a direct reflection of Peter’s leadership and passion for the business,” he adds. “As a result, this made him the perfect choice to lead our efforts to identify and integrate new organisations into our culture.”
Linas also received the Outstanding Contribution to APSCo award at the APSCo Awards for Excellence 2017. This award recognises an individual who has shown outstanding commitment and dedication to the recruitment industry through work conducted on behalf of APSCo.
Linas comments: “I am delighted to take on this new role and the new, exciting responsibilities that come with it. Over the past several years, Bullhorn’s growth on the international stage has been nothing short of momentous, but it could not have been done without the support of our committed, hard-working team.”
“The future ahead is bright,” he adds. “We have a clear plan in place to drive further expansion across EMEA, APAC and the rest of the world – and that plan is to deliver Bullhorn’s incredible products and customer experience to as many recruitment businesses as possible.”
