Mr. John Sumser
Technology Columnist
HRO Today Magazine
John understands the inner workings of employment and recruiting. He is able to see and articulate how and why people work. This is partly because John has worked a lot of jobs—from selling doughnuts door-to door, digging ditches and building railroads to corporate executive, director, editor, and CEO. He knows that making the right hiring decision requires both breadth and precision, and that finding the right person for the right job is a process that must adapt to an ever-changing marketplace. The foundation of John’s interest in recruiting was how to use developing technology to find candidates that were inaccessible before. John was on the cutting edge of how the internet and technology affect work and recruiting. He became interested in the internet in its embryonic stages when it was known as the Well. His conversations with folks in the San Francisco Bay Area developed into a position as Executive Director of the Point Foundation and publisher of the Whole Earth Catalog, where he met and worked with many of the founders of Silicon Valley. In 1995, John started his own company, Interbiznet, where he wrote a daily column on using the internet and technology for employment recruiting as well as a survey of global employment news and trends. His ideas have been the catalyst for dozens of new companies and countless MBA student papers. In 2007, John sold Interbiznet. John regularly consults with recruiters and employers on how to find, hire and keep the best employees, how people work, how companies and systems affect employees and how changing economies and technology alter the nature of work itself. One of John’s current areas of interest is how the cultural differences between the generations are changing the workplace. He introduced this idea last year to the top 500 employers in Canada last year where Al Gore was the warm-up act (although Mr. Gore might call it the key-note speech). John continues to explore the importance of culture and communications through new technologies and forums like Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin and blogging, all of which allow us to meet and connect with people we might not have found in another era, and perhaps say things we would never say in person.
Steve Tiufekchiev
Chief Strategy Officer
After 20 years of working in the University Relations (UR) space, Steve asked a question.  “Why is it that so little technology has found its way into university recruiting?” Campus teams were still using the same outdated tools and processes from 20 years ago and this just didn’t sit well with him. So, building on his previous experience with CRM, he decided to combine his inner geek with his passion for university recruiting. The resulting combination landed him at RECSOLU where he now helps drive the development of cutting edge solutions for university focused talent acquisition.
Steve joined RECSOLU in 2009 and he is currently the Chief Strategy Officer.  In this role, he guides RECSOLU’s development of technology and professional services solutions, enabling talent acquisition teams to gain significant efficiencies in knowledge management and metrics based decision capabilities.   He’s focused RECSOLU on two primary areas of technology development: reducing recruiter administrative time and increasing metrics through easily accessible data.
Prior to RECSOLU, Steve led and managed college recruiting programs at SRA, Deloitte, CompuCom and EDS. This exceptionally deep knowledge of all facets of college recruiting enable him to keep RECSOLU laser focused on developing solutions which resonate with talent acquisition professionals.
