CHICAGO (PRWEB) OCTOBER 09, 2020
Yello, the leader in early talent acquisition and recruiting scheduling software, today announced the appointment of Corey Ferengul as Chief Executive Officer.
With more than 25 years of experience, Ferengul has been serving as Executive Chairman for the company since February of this year and brings robust expertise in enterprise software and SaaS to Yello. Ferengul is currently a board member and investor for Hyde Park Angels and also serves on the board of directors for other companies. Most recently, Ferengul was the executive chairman and CEO of Magnetic, overseeing the launch of innovative technology and repositioning the company ahead of its sale to Deloitte Digital. Ferengul also served as CEO of Undertone and held leadership positions at Rovi Corporation, Platinum Technology and Meta Group.
As CEO, Ferengul will oversee all aspects of Yello’s operations, sales, product development, go-to-market strategy and talented team. He drove the launch of the new Yello Sourcing Marketplace, a diverse resource to find millions of early talent candidates. Yello’s new interview scheduling solution, which significantly simplifies and speeds up the painful interview coordination process, will continue to be a focus — as well as expanding Yello’s current portfolio of solutions to support effective virtual recruiting in the absence of live campus recruiting events.
“Joining an established leader in the early talent acquisition market is such an honor and a rare opportunity,” said Ferengul. “I’m excited to take on the challenges ahead and to work with co-founder Dan Bartfield and the talented and passionate team at Yello. Whether it’s expanding virtual recruiting or simplifying time-intensive interview scheduling, Yello remains committed to making it easier for recruiters to hire the best talent.”
Co-founder Jason Weingarten is moving on from day-to-day operations, but will remain on Yello’s board and provide strategic guidance. “This was an amazing ride and I am so appreciative of all the customers and employees I’ve been privileged to partner with over the past 12 years,” said Weingarten. “The early talent space is more important now than it has ever been and I am excited to see what Corey and the team will do for our amazing customers.” Weingarten will be starting a seed stage venture capital firm.
