David Haines

The ultimate Xref brand ambassador

David Haines is the ultimate Xref brand ambassador, having taken up the first full-time role and been a central cog in the system since joining Xref in 2013. With many years in recruitment and HR tech sales behind him, David oversaw the initial growth of the business and its subsequent ASX listing. Xref’s global expansion dreams became a reality when David took the brand across the world in 2016 and launched Xref EMEA from London. David started his career in the UK selling enterprise HR software before moving to Australia, where he spent seven years at the heart of the nation’s recruitment sector, managing IT recruitment teams for Australia’s largest agency. Combined, these made the perfect breeding ground for the first of many smart and market-aware Xref employees with a passion to improve the way HR professionals operate.
