In March, Symphony Talent unveiled Experience Cloud (X-Cloud), an omni-channel experience platform for candidates, employers and employees and Media Cloud (M-Cloud), an artificial intelligence-based media buying platform for employers worldwide. Added to Hodes, the company's award-winning creative and employer branding agency, Symphony Talent provides the only modern, end-to-end talent acquisition solution available today.
Calarco, who leads Symphony Talent's finance, legal and IT teams, brings more than two decades of financial and business operations acumen to the organization. His experience includes serving as chief financial officer at technology companies, Qognify and Createthe Group.

Baker joins Symphony Talent with over 25 years of enterprise sales and leadership experience and a proven track record of developing high-performing teams, with a heavy emphasis in the Human Capital Management technology market. In his new role, Baker is responsible for helping set the company's go-to-market strategy, developing a global sales team, and providing organizational leadership as part of the Senior Leadership team. Previously, he held leadership roles with Monster, ADP, Citrix and Urban Airship. Baker earned a Bachelor's of Science degree in Business and Marketing from Portland State University.
