Introducing CEO Academy | A special announcement from Jennifer McCollum, CEO of Linkage

October 31, 2022 Jennifer McCollum

As you know, Linkage was recently acquired by SHRM, beginning a new chapter in our 34-year history to change the face of leadership. Likewise, SHRM has a long legacy of empowering people and workplaces. Together, SHRM and Linkage will ensure that HR professionals, business executives and policymakers are better positioned to excel in the workplace with exclusive access to more data insights, business tools and top-notch leadership development programming.

As part of the SHRM family, we will continue to grow and evolve the ways we serve our clients and partner organizations.

I am pleased to share that SHRM has recently acquired CEO Academy, a high-level intensive learning and networking experience for CEOs and board leaders.

CEO Academy’s annual two-day program, led by successful recently retired CEOs and top academics at the Wharton School, focuses on strategy, innovation, growth, finance, talent, compensation, succession and other key issues for chief executives, emerging leaders and board leaders.

Since 1999, CEO Academy has proactively supported new and established CEOs of Fortune 500 companies with comprehensive solutions to address their most critical leadership issues through their world-class executive leadership programming. Today, CEO Academy has more than 600 alumni.

As a leading provider of strategic leadership development solutions, Linkage’s mission aligns well with both CEO Academy and SHRM. Together, this new acquisition will strengthen SHRM’s mission of creating Better Workplaces for a Better World and strongly position SHRM and Linkage as we continue to empower the leaders of tomorrow, enabling them to thrive in the workplace and optimize the CEO-CHRO relationship.

I look forward to sharing more details about CEO Academy and this exciting addition to the SHRM family in the days ahead.
