Remofirst, a leading Employer of Record (“EOR”) provider for employing remote talent in more than 150 countries, is proud to announce the appointment of Innes Bailey as its new Director of Customer Success; Sarveen Chester as Chief of Staff; and the promotion of David Hughson to the role of Chief Revenue Officer (“CRO”).

These strategic leadership hires and promotion reflect Remofirst’s commitment to achieving its mission of empowering employers to be free from geographical boundaries when accessing talent and allowing employees to pursue opportunities wherever they may exist.

Innes Bailey joins Remofirst’s leadership team bringing with her extensive experience in customer success and remote work. In her role, Innes will spearhead the company’s efforts to ensure customer satisfaction, loyalty, and retention. In her prior roles at similar companies, all of which are completely remote, Innes has demonstrated an outstanding track-record of building a world-class team to deliver exceptional quality and experience to its customers. Innes is excited to bring her customer-centric approach to Remofirst and deliver top-class customer experience to its clients.

Sarveen Chester joins the leadership team as its Chief of Staff. He brings over years of experience in managing highly cross-functional workstreams and operational transformation. In his new role, Sarveen will work closely with CEO Nurasyl Serik to oversee and drive key initiatives across the company. Prior to joining Remofirst, Sarveen led international expansion, operations, and regulatory authorizations at several companies, including Revolut, Dija, Gopuff, and Shares.

Additionally, Remofirst is delighted to announce the promotion of David Hughson to the position of Chief Revenue Officer. David Hughson was a key hire for Remofirst’s early inception in 2022, and has demonstrated remarkable leadership and a deep understanding of revenue-generation strategies throughout his tenure. In his new role, David will drive revenue growth, oversee sales and marketing initiatives, and strengthen partnerships to further establish Remofirst as a leader in the industry.

Nurasyl Serik, CEO and Founder of Remofirst said:

“We’re thrilled to have Innes and Sarveen join the Remofirst team, and we are equally excited to promote David to the role of Chief Revenue Officer. “Their combined expertise, dedication, and passion for excellence will undoubtedly contribute to our continued success. With this growing and exceptional leadership team in place, we are confident in our next steps to achieve what we set out to do from the beginning – empowering the pursuit of economic opportunities, wherever talent may be.”

This leadership announcement comes at a pivotal moment for Remofirst, as they have seen tremendous growth in the last year — growing 7x their customer base. Their team spans 5 continents and recently announced an expansion of their product features, including a global healthcare offering called “RemoHealth” for their clients.
