Lisa said she is "delighted and honored to be leading such a well-respected and high-performing team."
"We will be building on student and alumni feedback about their career search needs and also on industry and technology trends to maintain and accelerate our momentum in the marketplace," she added. "I truly believe that we are responsible for launching the careers of the leaders of the future, and I’m proud to be part of that mission.”
