Company: Jobpartners

Having launched a customer relationship management product for a global software company, Barbedette applied his masters degree in European business administration and management to form Jobpartners in 2000. Providing software to help corporate clients better manage their people processes and train and retain staff, Barbedette has quickly established Jobpartners as a European market leader. With headquarters in London, Jobpartners also has offices in France, Germany, Holland and Spain and 60 multinational customers in 45 different countries. Notable clients include Nike, Xerox and Boots and turnover will more than double this year to £5.3m. Barbedette, who has appointed a CEO, now concentrates on sales and marketing and exploring new channels.

2017 update:

Jobpartners was acquired by talent management solutions firm Taleo in 2011 for around $38m. As part of the deal, Barbedette became vice president for Europe, the Middle East and Africa at Taleo strategic accounts and alliances. When Taleo was acquired by Oracle in 2012, Barbedette took up the position of human capital management South Europe leader at Oracle from 2010 to 2015 – he has since progressed to vice president of human capital management South Europe and Germany.
