HireVue, a Salt Lake City, UT-based provider of a suite of AI-driven talent assessment and video interviewing solutions, received a majority investment from The Carlyle Group (NASDAQ: CG).
Equity capital for the investment came from Carlyle Partners VII, an $18.5 billion fund that makes majority and strategic minority investments primarily in the U.S. in targeted industries, including in technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) companies. TMT is a core area of focus for Carlyle, representing more than $30 billion of invested equity since inception.
The amount of the deal was not disclosed. Following the close of the transaction, existing shareholders, including Granite Ventures, Sequoia and TCV, together with HireVue management, remain minority investors.
The current executive team at HireVue continues to lead the company under the direction of Kevin Parker, Chairman and CEO.
