TaskUs Names Sales VP

Los Angeles-based TaskUs, which provides business process outsourcing, said this week that it has named Jarrod Johnson as Senior Vice President of Sales. Johnson was most recently SVP of Sales, Marketing, and Client Development at FacilitySource, and also had served at IBM and Xerox. Johnson will be based in Dallas. TaskUs said the hire comes after a "year of exponential revenue growth" for the company, which now has a huge employee base, mostly in the Phillippines. TaskUs has thousands of employees overseas, having grown to over 7,000 employees as of the end of 2016, but only a fraction of that employee base is in the United States, and even less of that in Santa Monica.
