HOUSTON - October 31, 2014

Hula Partners, an innovative human resources strategy and implementation provider, announces that Luke Marson is joining the firm as Chief Cloud HCM Architect responsible for building the fast-growing SuccessFactors business, introducing new strategic services, and overseeing architectural and implementation services for Employee Central. Marson moves over from HRIZONS, LLC where he served as Director Cloud HCM & Technology Solutions and co-led the Cloud HCM line-of-business.

Managing Partner, John Plusquellec states, “Hula Partners selected Marson to continue the growth and momentum in the SAP and SuccessFactors line of business based on his credentials of being a well-known, proven expert with a long standing presence in the global HCM community. Marson, along with the recent announcement of long-time industry insider Shad Adair joining Hula as a Managing Partner, positions Hula for building further on our strong pedigree in SAP and SuccessFactors. These appointments further enable Hula to be the go-to partner for strategic, global organizations looking to leverage the cloud and hybrid solutions to drive their business forward.”

Marson commented, “Hula Partners have quickly transitioned over to the cloud world and have already completed a number of large-scale, global hybrid implementations. With a strong SAP on-premise background, a breadth of technical product development and integration expertise in-house and a rapidly growing practice of experienced SuccessFactors consultants, the opportunity to join Hula was difficult to resist. Their focus of delivering a wide-range of world-class strategic, technology, and implementation services to those customers with a global footprint and in challenging industries really is a critical aspect of my decision to join Hula and I can’t wait to begin working with the team to grow further success to their business and their customers.”
