Sydney, Australia:

Salient announced today that it is to help another US SaaS vendor, GoodData, de-risk its APAC launch through an innovative talent acquisition program. This will see GoodData quickly establishing teams of proven sales and consulting professionals here in Australia.

Salient provides turnkey talent solutions so challenger brands can execute better. Their clients don’t accept the status quo; they are launching new products into fast changing markets with unique sales cultures. Salient’s clients include new APAC entrants, high growth divisions in large enterprises, and market leaders who still have that challenger mindset. ExactTarget and GoodData, US SaaS vendors are two such examples.

“We turned to Salient because they have done this before for companies that have successfully launched here in APAC,” says Chris Gartlan, Asia Pacific Managing Director, GoodData.

“We have business goals to hit and having the right people in key positions is critical to us achieving this. Working with Salient allows me to focus on driving the business knowing that the best talent is considering us as their next career move. I now also get support developing our key people which I would not otherwise get in the early stages of our operation here,” Gartlan added.

“Salient’s services are attuned to the needs of high growth SaaS vendors," says Raaj Govintharajah, Salient CEO. “We understand how fast these companies are growing, the aggressive business plans they are working to, and the cultures that people need to succeed in. We become part of the business fabric so we can provide talent solutions that go beyond the industry norm. That way our clients really accelerate growth and out-execute the competition.”
