Press release: Kuala Lumpur, June 2, 2022: Accendo Technologies, the only Asia-based talent intelligence platform and leading provider of talent management, assessments and career pathing solutions, announced its recent appointment of Thomas Lozza as the Chief Product Evangelist.
Over the last few years, Accendo has witnessed significant growth across Asian markets on the back of its talent management and assessment solution – TalentPulse. The unique and innovative solution is highly valued by clients for its strong functionality, analytics, and user friendliness, which is why more and more organizations are preferring to leverage TalentPulse for their needs compared to traditional assessment vendors or consulting houses. To further solidify the growth story and chart out the company’s expansion in global markets, Accendo decided to hire experienced product leader, software engineer and independent coach Thomas Lozza. With 19 years of experience in startups and scale-ups with product strategy, leadership, and building great agile product teams, Thomas comes to Accendo with the goal of exponentially scaling up the business.
Speaking about the senior hire, Sharma Lachu, CEO & Founder of Accendo Technologies, said that, “At this stage of the company, we needed someone with the drive, vision, and experience to take us to greater heights. I am very pleased to announce that Thomas Lozza has agreed to provide leadership to the product. As part of his role, Thomas will be responsible for vision, product strategy, and product delivery – areas that he is deeply passionate about and has tremendous expertise. I welcome him to the Accendo family and look forward to working closely with him to further grow the business.”
Adding to this, Thomas said that, “Creating great products at scale is hard. As an organization, we have to achieve a high level of agility where teams from different departments work together towards shared objectives. New product ideas need to be tested fast. Decisions on which ideas to pursue need to be transparent, based on data. This way, we deliver features that bring real value to our clients. Accendo may have gone beyond the start-up phase, having been in the industry for a few years already, hence scaling up is more important than ever. I am honored to be a part of Accendo to assist with the company’s product vision, strategy and delivery, in accordance with my years of experience in product management. Together, we aim to create a product organisation that can continuously address the changing business requirements of our clients and support them with solutions that truly meet their needs.”
