Snagajob, the job marketplace for hourly work, announced that Keith Forshew has been appointed Chief Executive Officer. Forshew will lead the expansion of Snagajob’s fast growing Jobs+Shifts offering. he previously oversaw product development at the company.
“Our platform for jobs and shifts already connects millions of hourly workers with employers in real time,” said Forshew. “My mission will be to help the team realize our shared vision for a future of hourly work where hourly workers can find the right employers, jobs and shifts with far greater ease and with much more transparency than what is available today”Keith Forshew
“Keith’s appointment as CEO marks the beginning of a new chapter in the world of hourly work. Keith is deeply committed to improving the state of hourly hiring and has the know-how needed to continue to develop and scale Snagajob’s transformative Jobs+Shifts business” said Fabio Rosati, Chairman of Snagajob’s Board.
A technology platforms and hospitality industry veteran, Forshew also served as President and COO of Movitas, COO of Starcite (acquired by CVent), and SVP Operations at Elance (now Upwork).
Since its founding nearly two decades ago, Snagajob has focused on helping people find hourly work. It has undergone quite a few leadership shakeups over the years and floundered at times. In my opinion they will probably get acquired in the next couple of years by bigger players looking to buy up its traffic. I could potentially see a company like Jobcase making a play for them.Chris Russell
