CoreHR, leading provider of Cloud-based HR and payroll solutions announced today that IT industry business leader Steve Leeson has joined its Executive Team as Chief Revenue Officer.

Leeson brings two decades of experience heading growth strategies of respected SaaS vendors with him to CoreHR.  He led Oracle’s Human Capital Management (HCM) Cloud Apps Business in the UK for four years through 2018, delivering a fivefold increase in annual revenue. Similarly, Leeson transformed the position of HCM provider Saba in EMEA.  He now joins CoreHR from Genesys, where he was General Manager and Vice President UK and Ireland. Other roles have included leadership positions with ABB Software and SAP UK.

Leeson is a welcome addition to the CoreHR executive team which holds a combined 100 years of technology sector experience. He is joining at a great time as the company’s new business growth continues to accelerate with international retailer JD Sports recently added to the growing list of customers.

“I’m extremely excited to join CoreHR and further develop and deliver on the company’s ambitious growth strategy,” said Leeson.

“HR leaders everywhere are looking at technology to automate routine, help better serve employees and give HR back the time it needs to align people management strategies with business goals. It’s a great time for me to join this amazing, growing company.”

CoreHR’s platform allows business leaders to automate transactional HR practices and drive data-led strategic direction. The new XD platform, launched earlier this month, supports HR’s shift from a tactical function into one of the central pillars of an organisation.

“CoreHR’s revenue is growing at three times the pace of the already buoyant market for HR software and I’m delighted Steve has chosen to join us,” said Dean Forbes, CEO at CoreHR.

“Steve brings exceptional people leadership, commercial acumen, market knowledge and vision to CoreHR and I know he’ll play a truly instrumental role in our future.”
