Ferguson will play a crucial role in preserving and continuing to build TaskUs’ reputation as a “people first” employer as the company embarks on another year of global expansion.

“Mike knows how to create and maintain programs that support an exceptional culture because he’s been doing it for over twenty years,” said CEO Bryce Maddock. “Mike managed a workforce larger than our 14,000, so we are confident he brings the insight and values that fit our culture.”

As CPO, Ferguson brings two decades of experience in HR strategies and programs for international organizations.
