Seasoned Services and Technology Executive Becomes Part of the Kredible Team
Dion DeLoof, the founder and former CEO of Anteo Group, has joined Kredible.
Last September, Anteo was acquired by the The CSI Companies, which is a unit of Tokyo-based Recruit Holdings Co. Ltd., the fourth-largest staffing company in the world.
“We are incredibly happy to have Dion become part of the Kredible team,” said Kredible founder and CEO Brad Shepard. “After selling Anteo, he really had the opportunity to work in any business he wanted to, but we are glad that he chose to join Kredible. Dion has what it takes to help Kredible achieve its vision of becoming the primary authority on the science of professional online credibility.”
DeLoof will lead Kredible’s growing Business Development team and play a vital role on the company’s leadership team.
DeLoof started Anteo in 2002, and the company’s star rose quickly in the human capital management, or HCM, marketplace, earning places on Entrepreneur magazine’s “Hot 100″ list and on the Inc. 500 ranking of privately held companies. Prior to Anteo, Dion spent 10 years with Allegis Group Inc., the largest privately held staffing company headquartered in the United States. His tenure with Allegis Group included a six-year term in Europe where he led Allegis’ first integration of an acquisition.
“I’ve spent much of my career in the HCM business, and it’s abundantly clear the importance of online and social-media credibility is the greatest it’s ever been for business professionals,” DeLoof said. “Every Fortune 500 client I worked with would extensively review our consultants and our business via LinkedIn before we would meet with them to earn their business. The need to look credible in the social space is easily as important as looking professional in person now.
“That’s why I’m so excited to be with Kredible,” he continued. “This company is rapidly becoming the authority on online professional credibility at a time when that is desperately needed. These days, to differentiate yourself, it’s imperative to be credible online to be successful. You and your business’ social persona needs to be top-notch.”
