Since he joined Sony Electronics (SEL) in March 2011, Peter Moore has revamped his company’s employment brand, driven incredible scale in his team’s recruiting activities, and re-positioned Talent Acquisition as a strategic partner to the business. We recently spoke with Peter to learn more about his transformational first year at SEL.
How did you come to work at Sony Electronics?
I was actually identified by Sony Electronics through LinkedIn in December 2010. Sony was looking to hire someone who had a strong presence in social media and was active within the LinkedIn community, and my profile came to the surface. I was based out of Chicago at the time, working for a major retailer. Sony was interested in my background in social media and in retail (given SEL’s retail presence)—the two worlds came together and here I am in San Diego a year later!
