Talentful welcomes John Freshwater to its Global Executive Leadership Team as Chief Revenue Officer.

After a significantly strong Q4 in 2020 with multiple new clients being onboarded, Talentful needed to hire 120 additional talent professionals to meet the continued demand in the first half of 2021. In the following months, the global embedded recruitment company began working with 76 new clients, ranging from scale-ups to enterprise tech businesses, including Deliveroo, Pinterest, Checkout.com and Expedia Group.

With Talentful’s ongoing growth and expansion, the team has recently welcomed John Freshwater to its Global Executive Leadership Team as Chief Revenue Officer. In this new role, John will be responsible for driving alignment across all revenue-centric functions, including marketing, sales, solutions and customer success.
