Triple-digit sales and user growth, new customers and new board member, Doug Dennerline, showcase company's leadership and overall category growth

SALT LAKE CITY, Dec. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- On-demand digital interviewing services are being widely adopted across hiring organizations, from the Fortune 500 to small and medium sized businesses. Contributing to the growth is the convergence of social, mobile, and video technology to more quickly, fairly and tellingly connect candidates with recruiters and hiring managers. Leading provider, HireVue, is driving this momentum with a record third quarter that included 150 percent sales growth and 47 new customers. Additionally, HireVue unveiled the world's first social interview application, was named 2012 HR Product of the Year, and welcomed an important new board member, Doug Dennerline.

"As we continue to develop and bring pioneering, industry changing products to market, we're closing more deals, hiring more talented employees and building our leadership in the space," explains David Bradford, HireVue's CEO. "In 2013 we'll continue to see widespread adoption of popular technologies like digital interviewing, which not only changes the recruiting model for businesses and job seekers alike, but also the financial implications of inefficient recruiting processes. In addition to company growth, bringing Doug onto our board is very strategic for HireVue's growing industry presence based on his experience in helping grow brands such as Cisco, Salesforce.com and SuccessFactors."

Further, 70% of candidates agree that digital interviews are an effective way for companies to get to know them as individuals.

On the heels of a record quarter, HireVue welcomes former SuccessFactors president, Doug Dennerline, to its board of directors.
