May 11, 2022 – New York and London – Symphony Talent, a global leader in recruitment marketing technology, today announced the appointment of Kermit Randa as its new Chief Executive Officer.

In his new position, Nair will leverage his extensive product engineering expertise to continue driving innovation that addresses the evolving needs facing time- and attention-strapped acquisition teams. “As the Great Resignation evolves to the Great Reimagination, where organizations are rethinking the meaning of jobs, employees, and flex work, it’s critical that we empower them with successful strategies and innovative tools so they can succeed now and in the future,” said Randa. “Our people, technology and data-driven insights are uniquely positioned to deliver customer-centric solutions that address the challenges that CEOs, CHROs and their talent acquisition teams contend with today. It’s energizing to join an organization with a progressive vision, and I look forward to helping realize this vision.” “Kermit’s highly accomplished background as an executive leader gives us much to be excited about for the future of Symphony Talent,” said Sunit Mukherjee, Managing Director at Symphony Technology Group (STG), the private equity firm backing the company. “Symphony Talent is attuned to the challenges that talent recruitment teams face around the world. With Kermit onboard, and partnering with Roopesh, we are confident that Symphony Talent will continue to grow its loyal customer base exponentially and further evolve its already impressive product portfolio. ”

With over 30 years of experience leading SaaS-based companies through periods of innovation and transformation Randa’s expertise includes software and business intelligence, organizational growth and innovation, and strategic partnership cultivation. Most recently, Randa was CEO of Syntellis Performance Solutions where he and his team significantly advanced the business through innovation, acquisitions, and operational enhancements. Prior to that, he served as CEO of PeopleAdmin, a management SaaS company, and chief growth officer at Waystar .

As a recognized team builder, Randa’s vision, and ability to help companies realize significant top-line growth and bottom-line results, while consistently delivering an exceptional customer experience, make him an ideal leader for Symphony Talent.
