We at RiseSmart are excited to announce that we’ve named former Drake Beam Morin (DBM) senior vice president Kim Johnson vice president of sales, as we continue to disrupt the human capital management industry with our technology, leadership and accountability to our customers.
As SVP of sales for DBM, Kim was a member of the executive leadership team and had direct responsibility for a geographic territory representing more than $50 million in annual revenues. She brings nearly two decades of sales experience in the HR space. Prior to her 11-year tenure with DBM, she managed sales training at Pryor Resources, one of the world’s largest training providers.
Said RiseSmart CEO Sanjay Sathe:
“Kim has had extensive experience delivering custom sales solutions for corporate outplacement clients in her decade-long rise to the top at DBM. We expect her to play a significant role in RiseSmart’s ambitious growth plans, as we continue to increase our share of the U.S. outplacement market.”
“I made the decision to leave DBM for RiseSmart because, frankly, I believe that RiseSmart is the future of the outplacement industry. The success rate of the Transition Concierge ® outplacement solution is truly astounding. With this service, RiseSmart has distinguished itself by achieving a time-to-placement ratio of only 18 weeks for transitioning employees — less than half the U.S. average of more than 40 weeks.”
Kim has held sales leadership positions throughout her tenures at DBM and Pryor Resources. She holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Oklahoma.
