A Cincinnati tech startup that helps connect young people to careers has expanded its C-suite as it prepares to roll out its platform on a broader scale. 
Peerro, which is based downtown, said Holly Kerschensteiner-Logan, a former Paycor director, has joined as its chief revenue officer.
The role is a new one for the company, founder Rachel Angel said, and signals its next phase of growth. 
“(Holly’s) track record of driving net new business gives her perspective relative to our market,” Angel said in a release. “She’s also an incredible team builder. (I’m) excited to have such a talented leader helping to scale Peerro to benefit companies and the young people they hire.” 
Kerschensteiner-Logan joins Peerro from Equifax, an enterprise HR compliance solutions provider. She has also held senior sales leadership roles at Norwood-headquartered Paycor.
She received a bachelor of business administration from Xavier University. For over a decade, she’s also been actively engaged with Big Brothers Big Sisters.
Kerschensteiner-Loganwill be based in Columbus.
Angel started Peero in 2018 to better connect young adults to career opportunities. The company’s Gen-Z-targeted platform helps match interested candidates with the right employers.
Peerro’s mobile-first hiring platform serves as a connection hub for those involved in workforce development, partnering with non-profits, schools and governmental agencies to help employers hire young people looking for jobs with a path to higher wage opportunities.
Peerro is also helping companies position themselves through brand marketing and messaging that’s considered more relevant to 14- to 24-year-olds.
Peerro’s local investors include CincyTech and Queen City Angels as well as Cleveland-based JumpStart Inc.
