He has been at the forefront of the online recruitment industry for around 20 years and the award to recognise his dedication to the industry is thoroughly deserved!”

He formulated the vision and strategic direction that led to the creation of Amris, the world-class ATS solution, and Employee-Check, the online candidate referencing platform.

Etienne Colella, Founder and President of PIXID Group, commented: “Mark is a very worthy recipient of this reward.

His enthusiasm is infectious to those around him and we are excited about what we can achieve together in the UK and Ireland over the coming years.”

Commenting on his award, Mark Kieve said: “It is tremendously satisfying to be recognised by Onrec in this way. When I first entered the recruitment industry having been a pioneer in the roll out of online technology for the property sector in the very early days of the Internet, I was motivated by the difference technology could make in an industry of immense social mportance. People and talent are what drive our economy, and we need to harness technology to help businesses find and compete for talent more efficiently for the good of our economy at large. We are very excited about our broad offering for the UK and Irish market and the new wave of innovation we are introducing to our clients.”
