SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 15, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — HAS LANDEDwhich provides the first comprehensive recruitment system for the restaurant and hospitality industry, today announced the appointment of Alex Mann as Head of Marketing and Development.

Alex brings over a decade of marketing, business development and technology experience to his position at LANDED. Previously, he was Capchase’s first growth/marketing hire, starting as Director of Development, leading marketing and growth from seed to Series B and building the entire operation. Prior to that, he was recruited to Bloomtech (FKA Lambda School) to lead digital marketing, scaling prospective student engagement when the pandemic was at its peak. He was a founding member of Mission Lane, a three-person team responsible for digital marketing and development. He was also Digital Marketing Manager at LendUp and spent five years in creative roles at OMD, Mediacom and ?What If! Innovation, where he was responsible for a variety of complex and creative assignments for clients that spanned industries from automotive to pharmaceuticals and financial services.

“We are very excited to have Alex join our executive team at a crucial time when our business is growing rapidly, helping restaurants and retailers across the country hire the best blue-collar workers in a very competitive market,” said Vivian Wang, Founder and CEO director from LAND. “These industries have a high turnover rate — up to 130% in the restaurant industry — and blue-collar workers are a truly underserved market. Alex will help us reach more companies and workers who need a quick connection to fill open positions. His experience in financial services is also very useful as LANDED will add new services to promote financial well-being, including fair and transparent financial products such as access to wages, credit expansion and stablecoin savings accounts.”
