In his new role, Sithasanan (LinkedIn profile) will be responsible for leading JobStreet Malaysia’s business growth and operations, while building on the company’s success and presence of more than two decades.

“I feel fortunate to be joining at this very moment because our purpose is to improve lives through better careers. This has never been more urgent amidst the current social and economic environments brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic,” said Sithasanan.

Sithasanan has 15 years of experience in leadership positions. He co-founded and sold two innovation-led start-ups, successfully turned around two digital advertising agencies and has had success scaling technology businesses across different markets and segments.

“Vic has a proven track record growing technology-driven businesses, leading digital business transformation programs and empowering strong company cultures in diverse markets,” said SEEK Asia CEO Peter Bithos.

Sithasanan is taking over from Simran Kaur, who has been promoted to SEEK Asia’s regional business transformation director.

“I am looking forward to the new role in business transformation with a key focus on driving agility and innovation across Seek Asia. The pandemic has accelerated changes to the business environment, resulting in shifts and realignment to processes, people and systems. As a customer-centric organization, we are fully committed to empowering customers to ‘survive and thrive’ in this new environment,” said Kaur.

SEEK Asia combines two leading brands JobStreet and JobsDB under one roof and, in recent months, JobStreet has launched many technological services for the South East Asian market–for example, a sophisticated search and discovery site powered by artificial intelligence to help job seekers quickly find relevant jobs.
