On-demand staffing platform Coople has announced the appointment of a new board member and board observers to strengthen its expertise across the technology, financial, operational and commercial sectors.
Joining the Board of Directors is David Klein from One Peak Partners. Fabio Selmoni and Humbert de Liedekerke join as board observers.
Fabio Selmoni, a Switzerland-based investor and advisor and former Head of Google’s European Sales and Operations, brings more than 20 years of experience in developing, leading and investing in large-scale tech companies.
Meanwhile, One Peak’s Founding Partners, David Klein and Humbert de Liedekerke, will bring more than 25 years of combined investing and operating experience in global technology companies. Prior to founding One Peak, David was a senior investment professional at Summit Partners, while Humbert was responsible for technology investments at AnaCap Financial Partners. Previously, both were growth investors at Morgan Stanley Principal Investments in London.
Humbert and David said: “Coople’s hassle-free recruitment model benefits all sizes of companies, from large multinational organisations to small and medium-sized businesses, spanning a wide range of sectors. What is so exciting about Coople’s model is that it fundamentally changes the way companies recruit, plan and manage their workforce in today’s marketplace. We are thrilled to advise Coople as the company grows and expands into new territories.”
Viktor Calabrò, Founder and CEO of Coople, commented: “We look forward to working with the board as we believe their collective knowledge, extensive network and vast experience in scaling growth companies will add huge value as the business expands internationally.”
Coople enables businesses to hire qualified staff in minutes through its mobile and web app. The company launched in the UK earlier this year after successfully scaling under the Staff Finder brand in Switzerland. One Peak Partners, a specialist private equity firm investing in growth stage technology and tech-enabled companies in Europe, led the growth investment in the company, together with Goldman Sachs Private Capital last year.
