PeopleAdmin Chief Operations Officer Jamie Holden featured in Insights Success magazine

Leading talent management provider for education puts the customer experience front and center … and its COO would have it no other way

AUSTIN, Texas--()--PeopleAdmin, the leader in talent management software for education, today announced that Jamie Holden, the company’s chief operations officer, was recognized in Insights Success magazine as one of the most influential women in business.

The business and technology magazine, which focuses on leading fast-growing companies, highlights Holden’s leadership and dedication to serving PeopleAdmin’s customers.

“No matter my role, I have been motivated by ‘serving those who serve,’” Holden said in the article. “In my current role, responsible for customer support and service, I’m able to serve educators and, ultimately, help make a difference in the lives of students. Those students then go out to serve the world. That’s what motivates me.”

Archana Ghule, managing editor of Insights Success, says that the Holden was selected for the recognition with others who “are proving to be the most inspiring women” in today’s business world by breaking not only the glass ceiling but also myths around women leadership. “They have proven their mettle,” he said.

Holden’s passion to serve, the article demonstrates, helped her successfully transition from the military to the technology industry, where she leads her Customer Success team at the only talent management company that serves the entire education spectrum — both K-12 and higher education.

PeopleAdmin serves almost 50 percent of all U.S. and Canadian educators, who in turn serve more than 30 million students.

The company’s solutions — TalentEd, SchoolSpring, SearchSoft and TeacherMatch for K-12, and SelectSuite for higher education — enable customers to streamline the hiring process, onboard new employees, efficiently manage positions, evaluate employee performance, tailor professional development, access industry-leading reporting, predict teacher candidate effectiveness, and more.

The article explains how Holden takes a hands-on role within PeopleAdmin, constantly thinking of ways to provide an “amazing customer experience” and working more closely with her team to help them achieve the highest levels of service.

“For me, it’s really important to stay close to what is happening at all levels in my organization,” Holden said. “I have moved out of my office, and I sit with the team. You learn so much about what’s working or not working in the business by being physically present where the work is happening.”

“It’s amazing to witness the example Jamie sets,” said PeopleAdmin CEO Kermit Randa. “One of our company values is customer and team over self, and we have to look no further than Jamie and her team to see that in action. The care they take with our customers — that’s the core, the backbone of our business. And Jamie helps us strive to do that better and better, every day.”

Holden is one of three women on PeopleAdmin’s executive leadership team; within Holden’s own customer service organization, three of four leaders are women. “This is a really impressive representation, and it’s great to have different perspectives on our teams,” Holden said.

This latest recognition by Insights Success follows a series of distinctions for PeopleAdmin over the past 18 months, including awards from Tyton Growth50, CIOReview magazine, HR Tech Outlook magazine, District Administration magazine, Education Technology Insights, and, locally, the Austin Business Journal.
