SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Leading media consultancy MightyHive today announced the appointment of Rashaad Jamal as Vice President of Learning and Development, to oversee the company’s world-class employee training programs known for creating programmatic experts. Jamal brings more than 10 years of training and coaching experience to this position.
“The support and training we provide our people, as well as to our customers, underpins MightyHive’s ability to deliver transformative marketing results,” said Pete Kim, CEO and co-founder, MightyHive. “We believe there is a 10:1 disconnect between the demand for and supply of programmatic experts today. Rashaad’s experience working with elite teams will be invaluable in ensuring MightyHive employees and our clients achieve their full potential.”
In this role, Jamal will fortify two internal programs and create additional programs for the continued development of its on-boarding and up-skilling capabilities. He will refine the curriculum of MightySchool, the company’s intensive training boot camp for new employees that brings a new hire with any level of experience up to technical competency and able to start executing digital campaigns, to ensure the program is able to meet the needs of the rapidly growing global staff. In addition, he will oversee MightyResume, a professional development program that helps employees set career goals, identify skills they need to achieve those goals and creates pathways to pursue those skills while at MightyHive.
“MightyHive’s unparalleled training programs have created a way to turn people with critical thinking and problem-solving skills, but no programmatic background, into experts in six months or less,” said Jamal. “I look forward to working with the team’s high-caliber recruits as we take their learning and development programs to the next level.”
Before joining MightyHive, Jamal was Engagement Manager at McKinsey & Company, where he helped some of the world’s largest and most well-known companies transform the performance, health and capabilities of their organizations, delivering impact to their bottom lines.
