GSX is pleased to welcome Bill West as its Executive Vice President of Business Development and new member of the organization’s leadership. With over 25 years in operational and sales leadership experience for test administration and credential management organizations, as well as an NCCA-accredited non-profit credentialing association, Bill will be focusing on helping credentialing organizations access GSX’s capabilities to build programs that advance their value to the professions they serve, create resilient workforces, support stakeholders, and advance lives.
“I couldn’t be happier to have Bill on the GSX team,” said Bryan Kainrath, Chief Growth Officer. “The leadership expertise and reputation within the assessment industry that Bill has will be integral to the success of GSX as we embark on a new era.”
Bill has been very active within assessment industry associations, conferences, and committees for much of his career. Currently, Bill has three very interesting commitments—serving on the National Advisory Board for the Credential As You Go (CAYG), as the Chair of the Certification & Licensure division of the Association of Test Professionals (ATP), and as the Vice Chair of the board of the Institute for Credentialing Excellence (ICE), who is the owner of the NCCA accreditation standard. He holds an MBA from Augsburg University, a B.A. in English and religion from St. Olaf College, and achieved the Institute for Credentialing Excellence Certified Credentialing Professional (ICE-CCP) certification.
“GSX has the unique capability of developing programs with clear, demonstratable value to the professions they serve, leveraging the latest in learning & assessment models,” said Bill West. “At the end of each day, I aim to leave a positive impact on the excellent mission of our industry. Joining GSX allows me the opportunity to continue that goal through building trusted relationships that enhance lives and careers. GSX has been a trusted partner for its clients for over two decades and I look forward to helping the organization grow its service to credentialing organizations, and building partnerships based on integrity and expertise.”
