DETROIT, Jan. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- MedCerts, one of the nation's leading providers of online career certification training, announces today the addition of Kelly Hover, former University of Phoenix Director, to its executive team.
Hover will assume the role of Executive Vice President of Operations and Student Engagement, a new position created to maximize MedCerts continued focus on outcomes and employer relations.
"I'm in love with the mission of MedCerts and how the company executes. I've been in higher education for 11 years and no one else has solved the problem of placement," Hover said. "MedCerts has a strategy for that and that's why students are coming to them. The company is not just focused on exam prep or pass rates – MedCerts is a disruptor in the industry, and I am excited to contribute to that."
Previously, Hover acted as Senior Director of Strategy and Customer Experience for the University of Phoenix, where she redesigned their customer service model to better align with its partners and students and created an omnichannel communication strategy.
