Key strategic addition to Ceridian's management team builds on company's progress in delivering next generation human capital management (HCM) solutions
Ceridian Corporation, a leading provider of human resources, payroll, tax filing, recruiting and workforce management software and solutions, announced today that Larry Dunivan has been appointed senior vice president, Product Management and Technology, for Ceridian U.S., effective immediately. Dunivan's deep industry knowledge and operating expertise developed over a 25-year career of bringing software products to market will be used to help Ceridian deliver next-generation solutions for the human capital industry.
"Strategically, this is a critical step in transitioning Ceridian from a traditional technology-enabled service bureau business to a cloud-based software solution company," commented Stuart C. Harvey, Jr., Ceridian's chief executive officer and president. "Larry is a proven executive with a record of delivering robust new products to market that helped establish Lawson as a key player in the HCM space."
Industry analysts have applauded the move. "Larry Dunivan is a terrific hire for Ceridian as it continues to evolve its software offerings," said independent industry analyst and co-chair of the HR Technology Conference & Expo, Bill Kutik. "In the 15 years I've known him, Larry has distinguished himself as a functional expert and thought-leader in the HR software industry. His breadth of knowledge across the HCM domain and technical expertise make him one of the most prominent and capable executives in the industry."
Dunivan will be responsible for Ceridian's product management and technology organizations, overseeing Ceridian's current suite of human capital solutions and services including human resources, payroll, tax filing, benefits and recruiting. Additionally, Dunivan will partner with leaders across the organization to drive the strategy and execution of preparing and transitioning Ceridian's customers to its next-generation SaaS platform, InView.
"I am excited to join Ceridian as it continues to build on its leadership in human capital software and services," Dunivan said. "The company's people, clear vision for the market, and commitment to innovation make this an extraordinary opportunity to have a significant and long term impact."
This strategic addition marks another significant step in Ceridian's commitment to investing in innovation and the integration of its technology offerings. On October 3rd, Ceridian and Dayforce, Ceridian's exclusive partner for SaaS workforce management solutions, announced a major expansion of the InView solution to bring payroll, human resources, employee self-service, benefits administration and workforce management onto a single platform, backed by Dayforce's award-winning technology. Additionally, Ceridian InView Workforce Management was named the leading workforce management solution provider by Nucleus Research in November.
Dunivan joins the company from Lawson Software, where he served as senior vice president of Global Human Capital Management Products. He was responsible for sales, services, product strategy, and development for the company's HR products. Prior to Lawson, Dunivan held executive roles at Best Buy and Personnel Decisions International. An M.B.A. graduate of Northwestern University, he is a frequent speaker and regular blogger on HCM technology.
