Benno is the Vice President of Business Operations, responsible for Hireology’s analytics, operational processes, and tooling.


He joined Hireology after nearly five years at Groupon where he amassed a variety of experience, including stints with the corporate development and editorial teams. Most notably, he built out the merchant research and lead management teams in North America before rolling out these new processes to all of Groupon’s international offices. He brings this experience establishing and scaling operational teams to Hireology, where he supports all facets of the business.

Benno studied Ancient Greek at the University of Chicago and moonlights in Chicago’s storefront theater scene, so he’s not just a data nerd: he’s an everything nerd. He lives in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood with his wife and their nerdy dog.
