Global Talent Tech Company Harver Announces Scott Lander as CEO and Board Chair

The hire follows the company's merger and rebranding in 2020. Dallas-based Outmatch joined forces with Amersterdam-based Harver in May and rebranded in November.

International volume hiring company Harver announced Scott Landers as CEO and chairman of the board of directors. The move comes following a merger with Dallas’ Outmatch in 2021 and planned growth. Landers replaces Greg Moran, the founder of Outmatch, who remains on Harver’s board.

“It’s an honor to join Harver at such an exciting time in their journey,” said Landers in a statement. “Organizations need to adapt their recruitment processes more than ever to address challenges such as shrinking talent pools, and Harver brings world-class solutions that are transforming enterprise volume hiring processes and delivering better candidate experiences across the globe.”

Landers most recently served as president and CEO of Monotype, a global font company, and helped it transition to an enterprise-class business through acquisitions and the development of the first font SaaS platform. Previous to Monotype, Landers was an executive with MapInfo and he currently sits on the board of Bridgeline Digital and the Center for Women & Enterprise.

Harver works with more than 1,300 global companies including Alorica, Valvoline, McDonald’s, Chili’s, and more in the hiring process by focusing on four key domains: matching, automation, candidate experience, and business intelligence.

“This extraordinary team is accomplishing remarkable things and is reshaping the future of hiring on a global scale,” said Moran. “Harver has grown to be one of the most dynamic companies in the talent technology space. It is ready for a new leader like Scott. I have no doubt Scott will lead the company to even greater success and continued innovation. I look forward to continuing to support the team strategically as a board member.”

In November 2021, Dallas-based Outmatch acquired Amsterdam-headquartered Harver with the merged company rebranding as Harver. Outmatch was founded in 2015 and its hiring platform combined artificial intelligence with behavioral science research to aid companies with staffing. Before the Harver merger, Outmatch had been active in M&A with six acquisitions between 2017 and 2020.
