Frederick, MD – iHire recently enlisted Kathlene Collins as Chief Sales and Marketing Officer. Collins, who officially began working at iHire on January 5, 2015, brings a 20+ year track record of market expansion and revenue growth to the niche job board and employment services website.
“Kathlene’s proven knowledge of the ins and outs of a successful job board will be invaluable to iHire,” said David MacFadyen, iHire’s Founder and CEO. “Her background in the online employment space combined with sales, marketing, and customer engagement expertise will be instrumental as we continue to strengthen and maintain our position as a leader in the digital job search arena.”
In 2004, Collins co-founded Inside Higher Ed, a daily news website for higher education professionals. As the Co-Founder and Publisher until 2014, she orchestrated critical operational plans, led website development (including job board functionality) from the ground up, built a team of top-performing sales personnel, and secured a readership of 1.3M unique monthly visitors. Previously as an Associate Publisher with a leading news, information, and job source for college/university faculty members and administrators, Collins tripled annual revenues by integrating sales into their recruitment advertising efforts and creating the first professional online job website for higher education.
“So much of the rhetoric about the hiring process reduces both the job and the candidate to commodities. I’m just thrilled to be joining iHire, a company that understands that hiring someone isn't about fitting tab A into slot B – it's about making a genuine human connection,” Collins stated. “iHire takes your search seriously – whether you're a candidate or an employer. I look forward to working with this amazing team.”
