Leading educational consultant Sharma named SVP of Global Workskills for ETS

Princeton-based ETS on Tuesday said Rohit Sharma will join the company as senior vice president of Global Workskills, overseeing all aspects of this new division, from sales and marketing to product and operations.

“Rohit possesses a keen understanding that education spans an individual’s lifetime, continuing well beyond high school, college or even an advanced degree,” ETS CEO Amit Sevak stated. “We’re incredibly fortunate to leverage his leadership and expertise at this pivotal moment as ETS seeks to provide critical solutions to help businesses close the gap between vacancies and finding employees with the right set of workplace skills.”

Sharma previously served as the chief operating officer of ThriveDX, a leader in digital skills training. He was responsible for driving product design and development, operational delivery and learner outcomes.

“The future of our workforce, companies and industries depends upon our ability to keep the skills of employees sharp so that we can better compete, drive growth and spur innovation,” Sharma stated. “I look forward to helping ETS become a leader in enhancing the skill sets of working professionals so that they, and the companies they work for, grow and reach their fullest potential.”

Sharma has over two decades of international experience across a range of sectors, including higher education, training, certification and workforce development. His previous professional experience includes serving as president and managing director of ACAMS, a wholly owned subsidiary of Adtalem Global Education, and CEO of INTI Education Group. Early in his career, he also served as a management consultant with the Boston Consulting Group.
