Kimball to Leverage Extensive Human Capital Management Experience to Support Company’s Robust Growth in the Region

SINGAPORE, HONG KONG, SYDNEY, MELBOURNE, NEW YORK and LONDON (November 21, 2014) -- PageUp, a leading Multinational Talent Management Software provider, today announced that seasoned business executive Carl Kimball has joined the company as Vice President, Southeast Asia. In this new role, he will focus on guiding PageUp’s growth in the region and introducing the company’s cloud-based unified talent management solutions to new markets.

Kimball brings a wealth of experience to PageUp, leveraging a distinguished career specialised in human capital management (HCM) and international business growth. His experience in HCM began when he joined PeopleSoft in 1993, where he remained for 12 years. During his tenure, he was responsible for leading sales, business development and marketing efforts, helping to drive business expansion across the U.S. and the Asia-Pacific region. After PeopleSoft’s merger with Oracle Corporation in 2005, Kimball continued as senior director, Asia Pacific for the company’s Software and Financial Management Applications division. Following this role, he continued to lead business development initiatives throughout the Asia-Pacific region, holding senior management positions with software companies including Guidance Software and eBao Tech International.

In addition to his professional experience, he holds a Bachelor of Business Administration from Griffith University in Queensland, Australia. Kimball has lived in Asia for the past 15 years and currently resides in Singapore.

“As more employers around the globe recognise the value of our solutions in facilitating cross-border talent management, we have experienced rapidly growing demand, particularly across Southeast Asia,” said Karen Cariss, CEO of PageUp. “Having the right leadership in place is essential to guiding our growth throughout the region. With his extensive experience leading global business development initiatives, and familiarity with the emerging markets of the region, Carl is the best choice to drive our continued success in Southeast Asia.”

“PageUp has built a solid reputation for helping employers overcome the inherent challenges of managing international teams, such as language and cultural barriers, in order to achieve the alignment needed to achieve positive results,” said Kimball. “I look forward to further growing our business in Southeast Asia and ensuring that PageUp becomes the talent management solutions provider of choice in the region.”
