Jul 26, 2023

July 26, 2023 22:26 +08 Business growth and continuous quality improvement are the goals of most business executives, regardless of their industry and expertise.

Making a business grow and expand is difficult, but it is even harder to build a quality offering, make it scalable, generate profit, then partner with prominent companies to deliver sustained commercial value to each business. One of the few leaders to do this is Dr. Courtney R.

Working with university athletic programs, she built the Showcase athletic assessment and development software applied to leading Division I athletic programs. Early in her career, she co-founded Strengths Research with Marcus Buckingham, where she developed the StandOut platform that was sold to ADP. She was one of the first 30 employees of VirtualBank/Lydian Trust, where she built a predictive talent and customer analytics platform - TalentMine® - and served as the Chief Marketing Officer on the Executive Team. At Lydian, she executed cost-efficient growth to develop seven billion dollars in assets under management and leverage her TalentMine® engine to hire and develop more than 1800 employees. From her journey at Lydian, Dr. McCashland purchased her talent assessment engine to found and serve as the CEO of the TalentMine® company where she grew the talent software business to three million in annual recurring revenue before selling it to Kenexa. She joined the executive team at Kenexa contributing to exponential growth as the President of the Global Assessment Division before Kenexa was sold to IBM for $1.4 Billion. During the most recent decade of her career, Dr. McCashland purchased science and software assets from IBM to co-found AuctusIQ, a growth intelligence company that applies AI technology and advanced analytics to turn sales talent into business growth. Emerging from the pandemic, AuctusIQ is ranked this year by Inc. as one of America's fastest-growing companies, earning awards for both quality and innovation. With a doctorate in organizational leadership from the University of Southern California and a Masters in quantitative and qualitative research from the University of Nebraska, Dr. McCashland has built deep expertise to bring valuable insights to the companies she leads and the clients she serves.
