30-year technology veteran joins Snagajob board of directors
Infor chairman Jim Schaper brings technology, operations experience to hourly workforce management company
RICHMOND, Va., April 20, 2011 – SnagAJob.com, the nation’s largest online community of hourly workers and the leading provider of hourly workforce management solutions, today announced that it has named a 30-year technology veteran, entrepreneur and experienced chief executive to its board of directors.
Jim Schaper, chairman of Infor, a privately held business software company, has helped guide its growth since 2002. Today, Infor has more than $1.8 billion in annual revenues, serves 70,000 customers and employs 8,000 people worldwide.
“We are extremely pleased that Jim has joined our board of directors,” said Shawn Boyer, founder and CEO of SnagAJob. “He brings invaluable B2B experience and proven know-how when it comes to growing companies successfully. Jim’s insights on both technology and operations will be a valued asset to the SnagAJob management team.”
Before founding Infor with Golden Gate Capital in 2002, Schaper was chairman and CEO of Primis Corporation, an Internet property management software and data provider that he sold to Land America Corporation in 2000. He was previously COO for Medaphis (later named Per-Se), a healthcare information technology company, and COO for Dun & Bradstreet Software.
“I look forward to working with the board of directors and management team at SnagAJob,” Schaper said. “This is a company that has a unique business model as a job site for hourly employees but also as a human resources software solution to support efforts at the franchise and corporate level. I see its growth story as a rare event among today’s technology companies.”
In March, SnagAJob announced that it secured $27 million in Series-C funding led by August Capital. The investment will be used to expand SnagAJob’s product portfolio, intensify marketing efforts and increase the size of its sales team. Eric Carlborg, who focuses on later-stage, growth companies for August Capital, joined the SnagAJob board of directors at the close of funding.
