Talent optimisation software company Compono has hired Peter Scott as its new chief product officer (CPO).
At Compono, he will assume the responsibilities of CPO and drive the technology product strategy, building scalable and innovative solutions across the company.
Scott will play a critical role in driving Compono’s vision of helping employers adapt to the rapidly evolving workforce by providing end-to-end talent solutions that realise the full potential of their people.
Scott previously was the product strategy director at ELMO Software, and is a leader with over 17 years of experience in shaping product strategies that help ambitious fast-growth businesses succeed.
Scott is an expert in building products to optimise the talent that is hired, developed and retained within organisations.
He has previously held senior positions at The Learning Group, Talent2, Maximus International and ELMO Software where he played a pivotal role in helping the company transition to a SaaS platform provider.
Scott said, “The business is at a point where connections are being made between its services and innovation is really starting to take shape. My first focus is on making the systems work together in a way that’s as simple as possible for the end user so they can get the most out of the platform.”
“Compono’s mission of powering people potential is an exciting one, and we’re only just scratching the surface of the value our unique science-backed technology can bring to the talent industry. We’re on a mission to understand the needs of people and in turn help businesses gain the right talent for their work, building stronger work cultures and engagement.”
According to Compono co-founder Carl Hartmann, “We are very pleased to bring a leader of Peter’s calibre on board. Peter brings with him a unique combination of product expertise and extensive experience in the human resources and recruitment sector.
“Compono is now entering the next stage of its development, as we set our sights on aggressive growth not just in Australia but around the world. With his supportive and collaborative leadership style, I believe Peter and his team are the right people to help shape Compono’s product offering into a truly global, competitive HR technology solution.”
