TaskUs (Nasdaq: TASK), a leading tech-enabled services provider to the world’s most innovative companies, expanded its leadership team over the past 10 months with the appointment of three senior executives: Claudia Walsh joined as General Counsel in October, Stephan Daoust as Chief Operating Officer in January and Rajnish Sinha as Chief People Officer in April. Each will lead their respective functions across all of the company’s global locations and workforce of approximately 35,600 employees. They will report to TaskUs CEO Bryce Maddock as members of the TaskUs Executive Leadership Team (ELT).
Walsh is a seasoned executive who brings her talent, leadership and more than 17 years of legal experience to TaskUs. She served as General Counsel of Alphabet’s Verily Life Sciences and Legal Director at Google and Facebook, and will lead the legal function of TaskUs globally.
“TaskUs stands out because it puts people and culture first,” said Walsh. “I am thrilled to join the team to support the company’s exciting growth and continued investment in people.”
“It is rare for a company to have the chance to work with someone as driven and talented as Claudia,” said TaskUs CEO Bryce Maddock. “Claudia brings a global and detail-oriented perspective that aligns perfectly with TaskUs.”
Daoust brings over two decades of experience in business process outsourcing to TaskUs, and will help the company build a unified global operating model. As COO, he will transform client experiences, improve global talent development, and continue the growth of company operations.
“The urgent need for scalable, exceptional digital customer experiences continues to grow, and the demand for cloud-based and digital-first solutions is on the rise,” said Maddock. “Steph is an experienced global operations leader who will help us scale our operations and elevate the delivery of our differentiated services to our customers.”
“In a short time, TaskUs has acquired an impressive roster of leading brands and set a new standard for people and culture in the industry,” said Daoust. “I’m inspired to join the TaskUs team to further support global development as we push the envelope on the delivery of digital services.”
As a company at the frontline of digital customer experience, people are TaskUs’s most important asset. Rajish Sinha, who joined the TaskUs team earlier this year as Chief People Officer, will ensure that its people continue to be the linchpin to success. Rajnish has spent over 25 years in business and people operations and now leads the visionary and people-centric culture at TaskUs.
“Rajnish is an incredible addition to our organization,” said TaskUs CEO Bryce Maddock. “He will help TaskUs attract the best talent from around the globe and be a strong advocate for the TaskUs employee experience and culture.”
“TaskUs is an organization that acts in bold and courageous ways,” said Sinha. “I am excited to join a company that’s driving the pace of digital transformation and delivering the talent and support that enables clients to innovate and scale.”
