Press Release: June 11, 2015
V2A Solutions Today Announced the Spin-Out of Hireix, Inc., in order to grow and commercialize the Accurate Hiring SystemTM developed by Larry Briggs, Founder and President of both Hireix and V2A Solutions. This move will allow the new company to focus its energies on turning Briggs’ proprietary methods into a scalable software solution. V2A Solutions will retain its focus on executive leadership coaching, team building, and business improvement seminars and trainings.
This move has already attracted the attention of several investors, who have contributed seed funding in order to cover Hireix’s initial operating costs. This venture will be spearheaded by Portland startup veteran, Amy Bloom, who has taken on the role of Vice President at Hireix. With two high-tech startup acquisitions under her belt and over a decade of experience in Portland’s startup ecosystem, Bloom is excited to have the opportunity to bring her depth of experience to the task of building a company from the ground up, “I’ve been very impressed with everything that Larry has built. I think the recruiting market is ripe for an innovative solution that brings costs for employers down while increasing employee engagement, and from what I’ve seen thus far, the Accurate Hiring System delivers on all fronts.”
While the company’s initial product offering is comprised of consulting services in the hiring solutions market, Briggs hinted at what the future holds for Hireix, “Amy has quickly grasped the unique elements of the Accurate Hiring System and shares my vision for unique and helpful tools to dramatically increase both business productivity and profits for our clients.” With the system developed by Briggs, employers are able to find, hire, and on-board the right employee for each position, with greater ease and certainty, and at less expense than with the use of recruiters.
Headquartered in Tigard, Oregon, Hireix is already bringing its unique approach to clients in the Portland area, and is exploring partnerships with other organizations.
