Mark Newman Named to Utah Business Forty Under 40

HireVue Founder, Chief Innovation Officer and Digital Interviewing Pioneer Recognized for Creating a Successful Disruptive Technology and for the Advantages He Brings to Utah

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - Feb 7, 2012) - HireVue, providers of an amazing new way to interview -- on demand -- announced today that the company's founder, Mark Newman, has been named to Utah Business magazine's 2012 Forty Under 40 list. Newman -- who was recently appointed chief innovation officer of HireVue -- is featured with his co-honorees in the February 2012 issue of Utah Business and will be celebrated at a special awards luncheon and networking reception later this month.

The Utah Business magazine Forty under 40 program recognizes professionals under the age of forty who have climbed the corporate ladder quickly, achieved tremendous success by becoming a standout in their field, demonstrated exceptional leadership qualities, created a disruptive technology with major impact, or created a market or industry for a new product with high levels of success. Newman and the program's nominees were judged using criteria of leadership ability, community involvement, notable achievements, business and personal philosophies and the advantage brought to Utah.

Commenting on the secrets to his success, Newman said, "You have to have strong vision and be able to find, assess and convince the best people in the market to join your cause. Being able to hire great people -- who aren't afraid of imagination and experimentation -- is key to getting things done. That's what makes HireVue such a success, and what makes our solution such an amazing business tool. I'm honored that Utah Business has recognized its impact on Utah and its ability to help businesses recruiting the best talent in the world."

As HireVue's founder, Newman introduced the world to HireVue's innovative Digital Interview Platform™ and On Demand Interviews™, improving the job interview experience and helping businesses more efficiently identify and hire top talent. Under his direction, HireVue raised venture capital from premier investors, developed game-changing products and more than quadrupled its customer base. The company's solution has provided services in more than 130 countries to organizations ranging from executive recruiters to Fortune 50 firms, and was named a Human Resource Executive Magazine Top HR Product in both 2009 and 2011.

In addition to growing the company, Newman led recruiting efforts to build a world-class management team. As HireVue's new chief innovation officer, Newman works with customers in the field to evangelize the benefits of digital interviewing, and with the company's development team on breakthrough interviewing.

Outside of HireVue, Newman volunteers his time as a mentor to the Boy Scouts of America, among other organizations. He earned his bachelor's degree in International Business from Westminster College, where he began developing the concepts for HireVue's solutions as an undergraduate, and later received a master's degree in Finance from the David Eccles School of Business at the University of Utah.

David Bradford, technology industry luminary and HireVue's new CEO, noted, "Mark is an extraordinary entrepreneur, and his vision is what has driven HireVue's innovation, fundamentally creating a digital interviewing category and changing the world of human talent acquisition and interviewing for businesses across the globe. It's a pleasure to work with and learn from this brilliant innovator, and it's no surprise that Utah Business has recognized Mark for his contributions to Utah and to the industry."
