Alongside the funding, Degreed announced two executive appointments within the company: David Blake as new Executive Chairman and Chris McCarthy as new CEO.
Keeping people’s skills in sync with fast-changing markets is the biggest challenge of our time. That’s why Degreed exists. We believe there’s a better, smarter way to help everyone keep their skills sharp for whatever’s next, to measure their progress as they grow, and to communicate their readiness — both to current and future employers.
Degreed has offices in San Francisco, Salt Lake City, and Amsterdam, and has raised a total of $75 million. We’ve written about Degreed before, read and go about your day in peace:
