Chief Talent Officer of Pivot + Edge,
John Fleischauer – or as he’s better known – bigtalljohn – is a bit of a recruiting enigma. After studying Biomedical Toxicology at the University of Guelph, John started his career in the recruiting industry in 2004. After working in the agency space for eight years, John transitioned to corporate and lead Halogen Software’s Global Talent Acquisition function, where he helped the business scale from 170-530 employees (worldwide) in 3 years. After being acquired by Saba Software, he then transitioned to lead Saba Software’s Global Talent Acquisition function where he was able to stand up a predictable hiring engine that allowed the business to hire for 70 open positions in his final 60 days with the company. John is now Chief Talent Officer of Pivot + Edge, a firm that helps scaling organizations compete against the big corporate conglomerates in the war for talent. John is an author, a TEDx speaker, a two-time DisruptHR speaker, and you can find him rambling about ridiculous nonsense on Twitter @bigtalljohn.
