iCIMS chairman brings extensive leadership experience to contribute to Northpass’ next wave of growth.

Northpass, a global technology company providing the leading cloud-based learning platform, announced today the appointment of Colin Day to its Board of Directors. The addition of Day brings the total number of Board members to four, with this being the first independent seat.

Day brings more than 20 years of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) technology experience to his new Board role at Northpass. Currently, Day serves as the Chairman of iCIMS, which he founded in 2000. Having scaled iCIMS to over 4,000 customers with more than $250MM in recurring revenue, today, iCIMS is the leading SaaS-based enterprise recruiting platform. This growth has been recognized by Inc., which named iCIMS one of America’s fastest-growing private companies for 13 years. The company’s technology supports over 2 million global, licensed users across more than 200 countries. 

As an executive widely recognized for his leadership ability, Day has been named one of the Highest Rated CEOs on Glassdoor for Small and Medium Companies in 2015, 2018 and 2019. Additionally, he was named one of The SaaS Report’s Top 50 SaaS CEOs from 2017-2019. 

“The Northpass team is extremely excited to welcome Colin to our Board. Given Colin’s experience — having founded and scaled a fantastic SaaS business in the human capital arena — we are confident that the entire team will benefit immensely from Colin’s extensive, domain-specific knowledge as Northpass matures in 2020 and beyond.” said Steve Cornwell, chief executive officer & founder, Northpass. 

Day notes, “Since Northpass’ learning platform hit the market, it has been consistently pushing the boundaries of what defines a learning management system (LMS). Steve and his team have been able to deliver a new approach to how today’s professionals are trained, and I believe this will reshape how every corporation conducts learning-based programs going forward. As Northpass continues to evolve its technology and bring forth innovative, learner-focused solutions, I am looking forward to helping Northpass achieve its next wave of growth.”

Day holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Cornell University. Currently, he serves as a corporation board member at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, a non-profit organization dedicated to ocean research, exploration and education. In addition, Day serves as a senior advisor at Susquehanna Growth Equity, a private equity and venture capital firm that makes investments in growth-stage software companies. He also serves as an advisory board member at Acadian Ventures, a venture capital firm investing in early-stage, work-related technology companies.
