Global certification industry leader, Jill Burroughs, to helm operations at exam development startup

CHICAGO - Aug. 17, 2020 -- pValue, Inc., a visionary startup in the testing market, today announced the hiring of exam security and operations expert Jill Burroughs as COO. Burroughs joins the company after serving in leadership roles at Amazon Web Services, Pearson VUE, CompTIA, and PSI.

Burroughs joins pValue as its flagship product, the Certiverse online testing marketplace, launches with its first exam development client. This one-of-a-kind system connects community experts with test sponsors and allows exam development to be conducted in a virtual, AI-assisted environment, streamlining the sometimes years-long process. Burroughs will be guiding the product to scale, and like the internationally-recognized customer producing its latest certification on Certiverse, she saw something special in the groundbreaking platform.

"As soon as I saw a demo of Certiverse, I knew it would be a game-changer in the industry," said Burroughs. "It solves the major problems around exam development that have been around for years and are now just exacerbated by COVID-19. Certiverse will help programs bring tests to market faster and more affordably, while at the same time increasing quality and security because it allows content to be updated so much more easily."

During her 20 years of experience in the testing industry, Burroughs has established successful global certification development teams and innovative processes. Her recent career benchmarks include successfully implementing a multi-model delivery strategy and developing new security guidelines for programs in the wake of the novel coronavirus. She has also worked as a security and investigative professional in both the public and private sectors.

CEO and co-founder Ruben Arturo Garcia is thrilled to add Burroughs to the company's experienced leadership team. "She brings a breadth of knowledge, including her expertise in security and comprehensive knowledge of operating large-scale programs," said Garcia. "She's also deeply respected in the industry and I know will be an appreciated member of our hard-working team."
