Global Recruitment Executive Leader Ian Scott Joins Bullhorn as Director of Global Accounts
Sales Leader with 25 Years’ Experience Charged with Accelerating Bullhorn’s International Enterprise Growth
Bullhorn®, the cloud computing company that helps staffing and recruiting organisations transform their businesses, today announced that it has hired recruitment executive leader Ian Scott as director of global accounts to accelerate the company’s international enterprise growth. Joining Bullhorn on the heels of its recent acquisition of Connexys, a Netherlands-based recruitment software company, Scott – a trusted advisor to many of the world’s top recruitment firms – brings more than 25 years of experience in recruitment technology and digital transformation to his new role. As director of global accounts, Scott will be responsible for understanding the business objectives and growth opportunities of the leading recruiting companies across the UK and mainland Europe to provide Bullhorn technology solutions that deliver long-term value.
Scott’s move to Bullhorn highlights the company’s strategic investment in increasing its roster of international enterprise customers and deepening its knowledge of the Salesforce.com ecosystem, which Connexys has leveraged to serve mainland Europe. His consultative approach, which he developed from his unparalleled experience in the recruitment industry, positions him to deliver Bullhorn’s best-of-breed solutions to the company’s international customers in the UK and mainland Europe.
“I’m looking forward to helping Bullhorn grow its international footprint in new geographies, especially following its acquisition of Connexys,” said Scott. “Bullhorn serves many of the world’s leading recruitment companies, and I’m eager to work with these businesses and more of them as we continue to grow and extend our leadership position in the market. I’m excited to join Bullhorn’s enterprise sales team and help create incredible customer experiences for Bullhorn’s clients.”
Throughout his career, Scott has held numerous leadership positions in sales and relationship management and has developed strategic relationships with leading global recruitment corporations. Before joining Bullhorn, he served as head of sales for a global provider of recruitment technology, and he also served as head of business development and client management for a UK provider of recruitment technology. He has also worked as the global head of foreign exchange at Toronto-Dominion Bank and managed client relationships with central banks, blue-chip corporations, and global financial institutions.
“Ian’s extensive knowledge of recruitment technology and his expertise in European go-to-market strategy makes him the perfect fit to grow our mainland European presence,” said Ryan Murphy, Bullhorn’s vice president of global enterprise strategy. “His passion and drive for delivering value to enterprise clients across diverse geographies is perfectly aligned with our strategy of increasing our global enterprise growth. Joining Bullhorn, Ian’s move signals to the industry that customers demand powerful, scalable, and extensible recruitment technology that they can only get from Bullhorn.”
In September, Bullhorn International acquired Connexys, which is one of the leading Salesforce independent software vendors in northern Europe, to supercharge its expansion into mainland Europe. Connexys’s flagship product offering is an applicant tracking system built on the Salesforce platform, and its solutions are currently used by 300 customers and 20,000 recruitment professionals across the Netherlands, Germany, France, and Belgium. The acquisition complements the strength of Bullhorn’s flagship, award-winning applicant tracking and CRM platform, which for the past 18 years has been the industry’s leading cloud-based, mobile-first, fully extensible recruitment software platform, powering the end-to-end recruitment processes of more than 7,000 companies.
