PeopleForce is pleased to announce that as of August 1 Mykola Mykhaylov, ex-CEO of robota.ua and investment director of Polish Pracuj Ventures fund, joined PeopleForce as its new VP of Growth.
Our team is delighted to be joined by someone whose experience and desire to grow and develop in the HR and Tech sphere matches our own.
Mykola Mykhayov will be responsible for PeopleForce’s development and scaling in the Ukrainian and Eastern European markets. As PeopleForce is also part of the Pracuj Ventures investment portfolio, Mykola’s work on achieving ambitious goals for our business will be part of a joint project with our Polish partners.
“Ukrainian HR Tech has extraordinary potential as exemplified by PeopleForce. Our company is one of the main drivers of its development in Western markets and we will continue to do everything we can to make more Ukrainian HR Tech startups enticing for investors,” said PeopleForce CEO Andrew Cetinic.
“That's why our team needed a VP of Growth who shared our interests, someone who understands the true value of our product, our dedicated team, and the opportunities that PeopleForce offers. Mykola is the best specialist anyone could imagine for this position and we are happy to welcome him to the team. I am really looking forward to the results of our cooperation on the Polish market.”
‘After completing investment in PeopleForce on behalf of PracujVentures earlier this year, I had a chance to interact more closely with Andrew and the PeopleForce team as Investment Director. I was so impressed by the product, the team and its remarkable energy, that I happily accepted the invitation to join them and take an active role in making PeopleForce one of the leading players in European HR Tech’, said Mykola Mykhaylov.
On May 2022 PeopleForce closed an investment round from the Polish venture fund Pracuj Ventures and became the ninth company in the fund's portfolio together with Gamfi, Wandlee, and Worksmile. Pracuj Ventures is the first corporate innovation fund in Poland and one of the first in the Central and Eastern European region to focus on investments in HR Tech and EDU Tech.
