Aliro Assembles Experienced HR Technology Executive Team to Accelerate Growth

The talent discovery platform welcomes three key hires to new leadership positions.

Aliro, the company transforming hiring through the power of human connection, announces the addition of three accomplished industry professionals to their executive team alongside founder and CEO, Robert Archibald.  Following the recent announcement of their Series A funding, the newly formed C-suite will transform Aliro’s go-to-market and product approach to bolster the company’s ability to equip HR and Talent Acquisition professionals to discover and engage talent in new ways.

Belfast based Gareth McCullough joins as Aliro’s Chief Technology Officer (CTO), coming from previous stints as CTO at SmashFly Technologies and Managing Director at Cobra Technology and GS3 Software. McCullough is already advancing Aliro’s global growth strategy with the establishment of Aliro Group Ireland, where he’s quickly completed several key engineering and product hires aimed at rapidly expanding Aliro’s capacity to innovate and grow far beyond their robust Referral Network features and further strengthen critical Talent Discovery and Workforce Diversity capabilities in the platform.
