In making the announcement, CEO and Founder Jen Kasle said the change was a natural progression.
“Over the past 15 years, the growth and success of the company has been immense,” said Kasle. “It is clear to me that the company is only as great as the team I employ. Without the unique contributions of both Sarah Goldsmith (11 years with the company) and Julie Rashid (9 years with the company), who have served as my Vice Presidents of Talent, that success would not have been possible. As such, I am thrilled to announce the well-deserved promotions of both Sarah and Julie to Co-Presidents. With these advancements, it felt right to transition away from a name that represents individuals, and move toward a rebranding that embodies the spirit of the company and the team culture that we cultivate.”
Additionally, Marisa Shold has been promoted to Director of Talent, Kera Schulze has been elevated to Talent Executive and Nicole Schloss has been upped to Talent Booker.
