New York, NY, December 20, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Since its inception in 2007, IvyExec.com
has become the online, go-to community for talented professionals who seek to develop and advance their careers. "Providing our highly aspiring members the resources they need to build their careers and smoothly transition to new ones is our passion," states Ivy Exec Founder and CEO, Elena Bajic. This passion delivered triple digit membership growth versus 2011.
Membership growth in 2012 was fueled by the development of innovative programs that connect Ivy Exec members to one another in meaningful ways.
The Ivy Exec Mentor Network was launched in May of this year. Network mentors, tapped from the Ivy Exec community, volunteer their time and expertise to help other members think through significant career challenges. Over 300 mentorship sessions between carefully matched mentors and protégés have been completed since the program’s debut, and this number is expected to double in first quarter 2013. No other mentorship program of this scope and magnitude exists in the career space. According to Lucy Cruz, Vice President—Bank of America and Ivy Exec Mentor, it’s "…an artful way to connect an intelligent, motivated community."
Strategic alliances with prominent global partners, and premier business school alumni organizations from Harvard, IE, Kellogg, IESE, NYU, and ESADE -- to name just a few -- also contributed significantly to Ivy Exec’s dramatic membership growth.
IvyExec.com heavily re-invests in product development to engage users with actionable content combined with user-friendly technology. While membership in Ivy Exec’s community is highly selective -- only 4 out of 10 applications are approved -- strong, continued membership growth is projected for 2013 and beyond.
