TalentWave, the largest and most experienced independent workforce compliance and engagement company in the U.S. continues expansion with key leadership hire.
Foster City, CA – TalentWave, the largest and most experienced independent workforce engagement solutions provider in the industry, today announced that Kieran Brady has been appointed as Chief Operating Officer. Based in Denver, he will be responsible for expanding the company’s infrastructure and managing the customer success teams.
This news follows the launch of the TalentWave brand in March of this year after the merger of ICon Professional Services and Synergy Services in October 2015. “We are so excited that Kieran chose TalentWave for the next phase of his impressive career,” commented Teresa Creech, CEO of TalentWave. “His insight and experience creating solutions that help enterprise clients approach contingent labor strategically is unsurpassed, and his leadership and operational experience will enable us to build a strong foundation for our continued rapid growth. Our ability to attract and hire a leader of Kieran’s caliber is great validation of our trajectory in the market, and we are looking forward to his contribution.”
Brady was one of the founders of IQNavigator 16 years ago and played an instrumental role in its evolution and market growth. He held a variety of leadership roles for the Denver-based VMS solution provider, most recently as EVP, Market Strategies, responsible for driving IQN’s industry leadership, managing the global sales team, partner and channel development, and their team of industry solution experts. Before joining IQN, Brady was a Principal Sales Consultant for Oracle, and Senior Practice Manager for Cap Gemini America. Brady earned a B.S. in Computer Science from Trinity College Dublin.
“I’m thrilled to be joining TalentWave at such an exciting time in the evolution of the contingent workforce industry,” said Brady. “I believe that the accelerating growth of the independent workforce, and how companies manage and engage these vital workers as a component of their total workforce, will be a core strategic capability. When I reflect on my career, today’s marketplace has a similar feeling of excitement, innovation, and potential to when VMS systems were first introduced. These same attributes apply to TalentWave and I’m thrilled to join the leadership team that is taking the clear market leader for independent workforce compliance and engagement to the next level.”
