Episode 26: “The Recruiter Who Started A Tech Company” with Bernie Schiemer from Vincere.
In 2009, after only seven years trading, Bernie Schiemer sold his recruitment business to Hays in a deal value totalling £75m GBP.
Still under 40, and nowhere near ready for retirement on the beach, Bernie kept scratching that entrepreneurial itch until he decided to enter the tech business, launching Vincere, an all-in-one CRM platform for ambitious recruitment firms, in 2012.
This one is for all the budding entrepreneurs and risk takers out there, who want to build something special, whether that’s in or outside of Recruitment.
Bernie has done it twice. And shares his journey with us here today. Not bad for a bloke from Mudgee.
Hope you enjoy it.
