Examity’s Bill West named to the Board of Directors for the Institute for Credentialing Excellence

We’re thrilled to announce that Examity’s own Bill West has been named to the board of directors of the Institute for Credentialing Excellence (ICE).

Newton, MA., November 11, 2020

A veteran of the assessment industry and an expert in certification and credentialing, Bill will contribute market insight from a broad background of serving, or being a part of, a wide variety of credentialing programs, while continuing in his role as Examity’s Senior Vice President of Business Development.

Throughout his twenty-plus year career in the fields of credentialing and assessment, Bill has established his own expert credentials, including serving in leadership roles at Pearson VUE, BrightLink, and the International Joint Commission on Allied Health Personnel in Ophthalmology. An active contributor to industry associations, conferences, and committees, he has previously served on other committees for the Institute of Credentialing Excellence before this board appointment. Over the course of his career, he has also been Conference Chair of the 2011 Innovations in Testing Conference, a member of the board of directors for the Association of Test Publishers (ATP), and a member of the board of directors for the Certification Network Group.    

Bill’s new position is even more important in the wake of the global market shifts that have occurred this year, as certification providers in a range of fields continue to seek new strategies that can enable effective and secure online credentialing at scale. This role is just one of many ways Examity is lending its expertise to the credentialing industry, as we continue advancing our platform to help move the field forward. Through our work providing secure online proctoring for organizations such as Adobe,  the City of LA, Slack, the College Board, and Epic, Examity has developed a deep understanding of how the assessment industry has been changed by 2020 — as well as how those shifts will drive the future of the field even once the crisis subsides. Bill’s expert guidance and insight will continue driving our work in support of credentialing providers across industries, and we look forward to the perspectives and new ideas he will contribute in his new role at ICE.
