Dublin, 31 March 2020 – The provider of an all-in-one HR software Personio has appointed Geraldine MacCarthy as Chief Revenue Officer. The former Head of Dropbox Business EMEA is tasked with driving Personio’s European expansion and further scaling its business in DACH. 

Starting her new role on 1st April 2020, MacCarthy will be responsible for all of Personio’s marketing and sales activities. Personio currently serves customers in over 40 countries and has set itself the goal of becoming the leading HR platform for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Europe.

MacCarthy brings almost twenty years of sales and technology experience in executive roles at category leading companies like Dropbox and Google. As Head of Dropbox Business EMEA she was instrumental in building up the European business. Prior to that, she spent over seven years at Google in multiple leadership positions, supporting their European expansion and establishing several new offices.

In addition, Personio is announcing the launch of its Dublin office, where MacCarthy will be based. The new location was chosen as a well-established international talent hub that has helped many successful tech companies better serve the European market. With the opening of the new office, Personio is now represented in a total of four locations throughout Europe: Munich, London, Madrid and Dublin.

Hanno Renner, co-founder and CEO of Personio: “Geraldine has proven several times in her career that she can grow tech businesses effectively. Furthermore and equally important, members of her past teams and peers value her as a people focused leader that can scale teams in a healthy manner. With those credentials and past experiences, I’m very excited to welcome Geraldine as part of the executive team, and am convinced that she will be instrumental in the future growth and success of Personio.”

Geraldine MacCarthy: “Hanno, his co-founders and the entire team at Personio have built a very impressive company over the past four years, and they are now in an extremely exciting phase of growth. Not least because of the recent Series C investment round earlier this year, Personio has enormous potential to become the market leader with its forward-looking HR software. I can’t wait to help drive Personio’s expansion with my international expertise, to digitalise the HR processes of small and medium-sized companies throughout Europe.”
