Kathy DeKam serves as our Chief People and Culture Officer, bringing more than 25 years of HR, people and culture, and business operations experience to our team. Her focus is on leading and executing our human capital strategy, including employee engagement, recruitment, team member development and recognition – reinforcing our company’s culture and values.
Prior to joining Qualifacts, Kathy most recently managed the People and Culture function at Digital Reasoning, a global technology leader offering artificial intelligence solutions in the healthcare and financial services sectors. While there, she was responsible for all aspects of human resources management and people operations. During Kathy’s career she has held HR and COO leadership positions, as well as served six years in the U.S. Navy.
On a personal note, Kathy was raised in Northern California and has lived in a variety of places throughout her career, including Japan, Maryland, Texas, and Arizona, until eventually moving to the Nashville area where she has been for the past 20 years. When Kathy is not helping support a positive culture for our team members, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, spoiling her two dogs, listening to music, and traveling.
