Examity, the Boston-based learning validation provider recently recognized as America’s fastest-growing education technology company, today announced the appointment of Kathy Glebus as Vice President, Human Resources. With nearly 15 years of experience in HR leadership, including senior roles at TripAdvisor, MOO, and Intralinks, Glebus will oversee the company’s HR operations both in its Newton headquarters and across the United States.
“Examity’s rapid expansion over the past few years reflects broader shifts in the education and training landscape, as online learning becomes increasingly popular for both colleges and employers,” said Michael London, Founder and CEO of Examity. “Kathleen brings not just expertise in recruiting and retaining top talent, but also a passion to inspire and motivate her colleagues.”
Glebus has led HR, talent, and recruiting efforts for startups and technology companies since beginning her career at Cowen and Company in 1990. She spent nearly a decade at Newton-based TripAdvisor, where she was the company’s Director of HR, and most recently served in senior HR leadership roles at MOO and Intralinks.
“Examity has a well-deserved reputation in the region as a company with a strong mission orientation, significant growth potential, and a passionate, dedicated team,” said Glebus. “I’m excited to join that team — and support the continued growth of one of the Boston area’s most dynamic companies.”
