SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 18, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lever, the recruiting software platform for more than 1,000 fast-growing companies around the world including Netflix, Lyft, Eventbrite and Shopify, today announces Eileen Treanor as Chief Financial Officer (CFO). Treanor’s hiring not only brings a wealth of fiscal expertise and experience to the Lever team, but also elevates the company’s executive team to 43 percent female and raises Lever’s overall gender ratio to 50:50 – a milestone that Lever co-founder and CEO Sarah Nahm has been vocal about achieving.

“Lever’s entire premise is about helping companies effortlessly collaborate to find the best talent and build the best teams, without compromising their values,” said Nahm. “Eileen’s financial credentials are impeccable, but she also shares our belief that a diverse workforce and an inclusive workplace lead to a healthier organization – which makes her decision to join our team, and help us achieve such an incredible goal, even more significant.”

Treanor’s appointment also reflects Lever’s commitment to ensuring the company maintains a diverse leadership team and board of directors. Today, 47 percent of all people managers at Lever are female. Additionally, as part of Lever’s recent Series B funding, Scale Venture Partners’ Stacey Bishop joined Lever’s board of directors – bringing Lever’s female board representation to 40 percent.

In her new role, Treanor will be responsible for leading Lever’s financial operations and investment strategy, scalable policies and procedures to support growth as well as being a strategic liaison to the rest of the executive team as the company continues to gain market share in the hiring software industry. Before joining Lever, Treanor served as Vice President of Finance at entertainment fan site Wikia, where she managed the Controllership and FP&A functions,  built scalable business processes and procedures, and supported the Company during its aggressive growth.  She has also held high-level finance positions at Virgin America and Yahoo!. Treanor completed her undergraduate degree at DeMontfort University and achieved her MBA at UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business.  She also is a Certified Public Accountant in California and Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants Ireland.

“Lever has established itself as an innovator in the recruiting industry at a time when finding and hiring the best talent is harder than ever before,” said Treanor. “Lever’s ability to differentiate itself in a crowded field, while also being able to respond to market needs with innovative products like Lever Nurture, is evidence that the company’s impressive growth trajectory will continue for some time. I couldn’t be more excited to be joining such a dynamic, collaborative and supportive team.”

Lever’s numerous accolades to date including being recognized by RecruitingDaily as one of the top 10 HR Technology and Recruiting Tools of 2015, placing on Entrepreneur’s list of the 25 Best Small Company Cultures of 2015, and being named to CIO Review’s 20 Most Promising HR Technology Solution Providers of 2015.
