Papaya Global is proud to announce the hiring of Dave Carter as Papaya Global’s first Chief Revenue Officer.
Dave brings a wealth of first-hand knowledge building and scaling Revenue Organizations in the HR Technology and Payroll world. He will oversee all of Papaya’s revenue generating operations worldwide as the company aims to triple in size and revenue for the third straight year.
During his decade as Chief Sales Officer at Cornerstone OnDemand, Dave played a key role in growing the company revenue from $10M to $500M and taking it through an IPO. His sales team specialized in finding the right solution for each client and driving impact and value which resulted in a 95% customer retention rate.
“I am so excited to be joining Papaya during this period of tremendous growth and look forward to working with the team as we execute the next phase of scaling and operationalizing the revenue team. Global Payroll has long been a challenge for companies of all sizes and recent trends pointing towards decentralized workforces and work from anywhere employment policies create an even bigger opportunity. I look forward to helping companies of all sizes solve this problem while improving compliance and driving increased efficiency.”
Dave started his sales career in the Payroll Services industry holding multiple sales and leadership roles at Ceridian before becoming SVP Sales at ProBusiness, an early disruptor in the payroll industry that went Public and was eventually acquired by ADP.
Most recently, Dave completed nearly three years as President of SmartRecruiters, a San Francisco-based company that helped companies attract and hire the best talent available.
Dave joins Papaya following the closing of a $100 million funding round that placed Papaya’s valuation at over $1 billion under the direction of co-founder and CEO Eynat Guez.
“We are thrilled to bring in someone with so much outstanding experience as a leader in companies that have gone through the process of hyper-growth similar to what Papaya is currently experiencing,” Ms. Guez said. “I can’t imagine a better fit for Papaya.”
