Claro Analytics Names VP of Partnerships
April 17, 2023 – Claro Analytics, a WilsonHCG company and global labor market intelligence provider, has appointed Marc Mapes as vice president of partnerships. “We’re delighted Marc has joined the Claro team,” said Michael Beygelman, founder of Claro and now EVP of product at WilsonHCG. “Demand for real-time labor market intelligence is growing rapidly because it gives companies the ability to forecast and adapt to the ever-changing labor market. Mapes will help us build even more strategic partnerships with organizations across the globe so we can transform the way they’re making decisions.”
Mr. Mapes, who has more than a decade of experience in HR technology, will be responsible for building strategic partnerships and driving business growth. He previously served as senior account executive with ZoomInfo. Prior to that, Mr. Mapes served in the same position with Monster. He also held various roles with Lumesse and Avature. Mr. Mapes also founded a software company.
“Claro has long had a reputation as a thought leader in the HR tech and labor market intelligence space, and I’m excited to be part of such an innovative company,” said Mr. Mapes. “Access to real-time labor data is critical in this current economic climate as it can show organizations what’s happening right now rather than what happened several months ago (which is simply too late in this fast-moving market).”
Claro also announced a new module called Discovery, which is built upon its global labor market intelligence platform. Discovery offers recruiters and sourcers a modern user experience for managing and engaging with more than 450 million profiles globally.
Claro Analytics, which was established in 2014 by Michael Beygelman, is a talent intelligence technology platform with unique capabilities to provide real-time talent market insights to help organizations make more evidence-based, strategic decisions about talent.
Last year, WilsonHCG acquired Claro Analytics. “WilsonHCG identified a gap in the market for talent intelligence insights delivered ‘as a service’ that Claro Analytics was filling,” said John Wilson, CEO at WilsonHCG. “In this competitive talent landscape, global organizations need access to real-time labor market data more than ever before, but many lack the resources to be able to collect and apply the insights.”

“This acquisition means we’re able to provide even more comprehensive real-time talent insights to help organizations attract and retain talent,” he said. “I’ve known Michael for a number of years and his passion for innovation is unmatched.”
