The firm has appointed Alla Keogh as the new head of people and performance.
MYOB chief executive Tim Reed said Ms Keogh’s extensive human resources experience across a number of industries and sectors made her the perfect candidate to lead the people and performance team.
“I am thrilled to welcome Alla to MYOB," Mr Reed said. "Alla has an outstanding reputation – she has an innovative and enthusiastic approach and has facilitated some really fantastic outcomes within the companies she has previously worked [with]."
Mr Reed said Ms Keogh’s experience in building teams in fast-paced businesses matches MYOB’s desire to grow through the development of an exceptional team.
“The MYOB culture provides a sustainable competitive advantage to us and Alla has very quickly not just developed an intuitive sense for our culture but also a vision to drive it forward,” he said.
Ms Keogh said she is excited to join MYOB because of the transformation that the company has undergone in recent years as it has moved its offering towards online accounting solutions.
“It is our people who are going to have the most significant impact with regard to our success. There are amazing opportunities to leverage MYOB’s intellectual capital and indeed for our people to go from strength to strength throughout the coming years,” Ms Keogh said.
“MYOB is already at a best practice level in many of its people-related initiatives, but I’m keen for us to really push the boundaries and achieve new heights."
