NEW YORK, Aug. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Gloat, the AI-powered talent marketplace and workforce agility platform deployed by some of the world's largest employers, announced Aaron Au will join the company as Chief Strategy Officer. Co-Founder of SAP SuccessFactors, Au recently served as SAP SuccessFactors' CTO.
"We are proud to announce that Aaron is taking a more active role in Gloat," said Gloat founder and CEO Ben Reuveni. "As Chief Strategy Officer, Aaron will help lead Gloat's strategic roadmap and partnership ecosystem, and build the foundations for our next chapter of growth as a leading enterprise Talent Marketplace platform. Aaron brings unparalleled industry experience and his increased involvement in our company will accelerate our ability to deliver the Gloat Talent Marketplace to even more enterprises as we accelerate our global expansion."

"Adopting and integrating artificial intelligence into HR is the key to creating a more diverse, agile and future-proof workforce. A company that can better utilize data will unleash the skills of their employees and align talent to the needs of their business at-scale, especially during times of uncertainty. Gloat's AI is exactly what companies need to revolutionize their HR function and where Lars and I envisioned the industry needing to go when we began our journey back in 2001."
