Reejig appoints Brian Hartzer as Chairman of the Board


Reejig announced leading Australian business executive, Brian Hartzer, has joined its Board of Directors as Chairman, bolstering the workforce intelligence platform’s credentials as it pushes for global growth. 

In addition to his previous role as Westpac Managing Director & CEO, Mr. Hartzer has extensive international leadership experience, including roles overseeing large-scale businesses in the US, UK, and Asia. He currently serves as Chairman of Beforepay, a Sydney-based Fintech startup, and as a senior advisor to Quantium and Sayers Group.

As Chairman of Reejig, Mr. Hartzer will work closely with Reejig CEO Siobhan Savage, the Reejig Board, and its investor group to support the rapid scaleup and international expansion of Reejig’s market-leading talent solutions.

The appointment follows a recently-completed $6 million Series A capital raise for the company, which uses audited ethical AI to allow enterprise businesses to make smart and informed decisions around talent. 

A seasoned professional, Mr. Hartzer brings decades of experience managing some of the world’s largest and most complex workforces. At Westpac he led the shift towards organisational agility and has long advocated for companies to build dynamic and flexible workforces to achieve greater customer centricity, improved speed to market, stronger growth, and a more engaged workforce.

Mr. Hartzer reflected, “The move towards organisational agility is here to stay. Many large companies are adopting agile strategies and putting in place agile team structures, processes, and technology. But to maximise outcomes, companies need new tools that help them find, move, reskill and engage their talent.”

“Reejig is a gamechanger for large organisations as they seek to solve workforce agility. It gives management and HR professionals 100% visibility of the skills within a workforce, and uses ethical AI to identify and support talent decisions that are both fair and successful.”

He added, “I was fortunate to have discovered Reejig's solution at an early stage and have been amazed by the quality of what they’ve built in a short period of time.  I know from personal experience that Reejig solves an issue that so many large companies have historically struggled with. Siobhan and the Reejig leadership team are exceptional, and I couldn’t be more excited to support them as they enter this period of rapid growth.”

With a strong and growing client base including Woolworths, KPMG, Transport for NSW, John Holland, MYOB, APM and UTS, Mr. Hartzer’s appointment is the latest in a series of moves to position Reejig for success as it’s pulled organically into US and UK markets. 

"We are so pleased to welcome Brian as the Chairman of our board. Brian is well known in the industry for his track record of building high performing and highly engaged teams, as well as his passion for leadership development. His experience in leading some of Australia’s largest and most complex organisations will be invaluable as we seek to deliver our vision of a world with zero wasted potential in people and businesses,” said Siobhan Savage, CEO and Co-Founder of Reejig.  

“His personal experience in creating workforce agility within a major corporation, coupled with his commitment to helping companies build diverse, highly engaged teams, will strengthen Reejig as we work to create a better future of work; one without bias, where everyone thrives at work.”
