HireVue Appoints Microsoft AI Executive Eric Boyd to Board of Directors
Experienced AI engineering executive brings expertise in leading AI platform development for technology giants to HireVue Board
HireVue, provider of the most comprehensive AI-driven talent assessment suite and video interviewing solutions, has named Eric Boyd, CVP AI Platform at Microsoft, to the HireVue Board of Directors.
“I’m extremely pleased to welcome Eric to the HireVue Board of Directors,” said Kevin Parker, Chairman and CEO at HireVue. “His wealth of experience and unique perspective in AI and analytics will be of enormous value as we continue to accelerate HireVue’s technology for our global customers.”
Boyd has spent nearly a decade at Microsoft leading large-scale efforts such as the Bing Ads engineering team, including the relevance AI, high-performance serving systems, and big-data analytics systems. In his current role as CVP AI Platform, he oversees development of the AI tools, infrastructure, hardware, big data systems and key data sets powering the machine-learning systems driving Bing, Bing Ads, and Microsoft Office.
Earlier in his career, he served as Vice President of Engineering for Mochi Media and spent over nine years in engineering leadership roles at Yahoo!, where he was ultimately promoted to Vice President of Platform Engineering. He holds a B.S. in Computer Engineering and Mathematics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
“It’s fantastic to join the HireVue board at a time of such significant growth,” Boyd said. “Few companies deliver on a vision the way that HireVue has delivered on the idea of democratizing the recruiting process. With such a strong Board in place, I’m looking forward to helping guide HireVue to the next level as a company.”

- The company is on track to increase new business by almost 35 percent year over year.
- HireVue has hosted over seven million video interviews to date, up from the company’s milestone of five million interviews achieved in October 2017.
