Truvelop announces the addition of Kim Shanahan to Board of Directors

Truvelop, an HR Tech SAAS performance management and development start-up in Baltimore, Maryland, announced today that top executive search leader Kim Shanahan has joined its Board of Directors.

Kim brings 25+ years of business and executive search experience to the Truvelop team. She is CEO and Co-Founder of accelHRate, a top certified WOSB and executive search firm in the Washington DC metro area focused on placing Board of Directors as well as executives in Human Resources and Finance roles. Kim has partnered with hundreds of CEOs, Board Members and CHROs across multiple industries and geographies. Prior to Co-Founding accelHRate in 2014, she spent eight years with Korn Ferry where she led the HR Center of Expertise as Senior Client Partner and simultaneously served as Managing Partner for a large office P&L. She was also an active member of the CEO and Board Practice.

Based on her recent conversations with top C-suite leaders across the country, Shanahan stated, “Many existing performance management/engagement tools are not meeting the needs of today’s businesses, and I have been blown-away by Truvelop’s technology and results. Leaders are craving an effective and inexpensive solution that can be implemented quickly and seamlessly. I am truly excited by what Truvelop is bringing to this market.”

Kim joins Truvelop’s Board at a time when the need for increased engagement, performance and analytics is more important than ever. “Kim’s experience as a thought leader in the HR space coupled with her background in technology, management consulting and corporate strategy make her a valuable addition to our Board of Directors and our team,” Truvelop CEO Lisa First-Willis said.

Truvelop offers a SaaS solution that is easy to implement and ideal for distributed workforces and companies redefining employee engagement strategies. “Truvelop is a much-needed disrupter in the space. I have seen this tool increase engagement and satisfaction, improve manager performance, increase accountability, and provide real time analytics to key decision makers,” Shanahan added.

Kim Shanahan joins the Board with career HR executive Lisa First-Willis (Co-Founder and CEO) and veteran Executive Management Consultant and global CEO Andrew Gibson (Chairman).
