Ross Melbourne

Ross is the technological driving force behind Aquire's industry-leading workforce planning and management solutions, OrgPublisher™ and InSight™.

Ross was the inventor of automatic org charting, which is now a business best practice in the Human Resource industry. With his wife Lois Melbourne, Ross co-founded the company in 1994 bringing automatic org charting to the market. As the company product visionary, he has led Aquire from workforce reporting and org charting to become a recognized innovator in the field of workforce planning and analytic solutions.

Although Ross is a software industry veteran and is continually making advances in HR technology, he is far from a remote technical innovator. Rather, he nurtures and is motivated by a strong personal understanding of the needs of talent management professionals and a desire to help them overcome their toughest workforce management challenges on a daily basis.

Ross speaks at industry events, conducts annual Aquire technical workshops and has been published in several leading technology and business publications. 

A native of England, Ross has lived in the United States since 1988.
