Work-tech market on the rise - Darwinbox hires ex-Salesforce and ex-Oracle executive to meet the demand in SEA
SINGAPORE, July 22, 2021 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

   Over the last 18 months, there has been a massive digital transformation at 
scale. Organizations have prioritized people, processes and technology as the 
pandemic disrupted the world of work. The global human resource (HR) technology 
market that reached a value of US$ 25.76 Billion in 2020 is expected to grow at 
a CAGR of 9.2% during 2021-2026.  

   Amidst this growing demand for HR-tech solutions, Asia's fastest growing HR 
technology platform, Darwinbox announces the appointment of Juancho Jerusalem 
to their Executive Leadership team. He joins them as Vice President and Head of 
APJ Expansion, leading the company's penetration in ASEAN, AN/Z and Japan. With 
key responsibilities including customer success across the company's base of 
HRMS users, growth and expansion across APJ, and culture creation for 
attracting best talent and partners, Juancho's addition to the Darwinbox team 
is critical to the company's growth vision for this year. 

   Juancho comes to Darwinbox with a distinguished career at Salesforce as 
Regional Vice President where he spent close to 5 years managing the Marketing 
Cloud business across ASEAN and Greater China Regions. Most recently, he led 
the charge for Salesforce's Digital 360 business in Thailand and Philippines 
where both countries delivered immense revenue growth.  Prior to this, he 
handled roles of varying complexity and difficulty at MNCs like Oracle and 
Citrix across APAC for over 17 years.  

   Speaking about the HR Tech market and his movement to Darwinbox, Juancho 
said, "Asia is unique where internet and mobile adoptions are twice as fast 
compared to the rest of the globe. Enter the pandemic, this has pushed the 
workforce to re-think how they engage and forced them to be more creative and 
resilient. However, current HRTech providers have become inefficient, outdated 
and costly to maintain. HRTech should not be hard to use particularly in a 
work-from-anywhere world. It shouldn't be any different from the day-to-day 
mobile apps we use like Instagram, Spotify and Facebook. This is where 
Darwinbox comes in. It's simple, it's effective, it's for every employee who 
has a handheld device."

   Juancho was born and bred in Manila, before moving to Sydney for 11 years 
and now resides in Singapore. 

   "We are excited to work with Juancho and learn from his expertise in leading 
SaaS applications at Oracle and Salesforce, while growing their customer 
experience business. As we gear up to scale 3X this year, he will be leading 
the expansion of our teams and customer base in the country," said Jayant 
Paleti, Co-Founder, Darwinbox. 

   Darwinbox is a leading provider of cloud-based Human Resources Management 
Software (HRMS) 'From Asia, for the world'. Several leading companies like JG
