Lori Bierman Joins Assess Systems as Senior Account Executive

DALLAS, Jan. 30, 2014–Assess Systems announces the hiring of Lori Bierman, a highly regarded expert in the assessment industry, as a senior account executive.

Assess Systems provides talent selection and people development solutions for companies in a variety of industries, some of which include restaurant, hospitality, retail, healthcare and banking. Bierman will partner with clients and prospects to help them determine the best solutions to meet their company-specific needs.

Demonstrating a strong background in industrial and organizational psychology, Bierman earned a master’s degree in clinical/counseling psychology from Southern Methodist University and consulted with clients around human capital needs for over 16 years. In her roles as senior consultant, vice president and business advisor, she has partnered with clients to provide comprehensive assessment solutions, including competency modeling, talent selection and development, as well as leadership development and succession planning.

“Talent is truly a competitive edge for any organization,” Bierman states. “I enjoy partnering with clients to help them identify the best solutions to assess, select, and retain top talent in order to give them that edge and build a strong talent pipeline.”

“Often a conversation with a client starts with how to select better talent and ends with deeper discussions around business impact. We can then show how better hourly or managerial talent can lead to quantifiable business benefits such as fewer absences, reduced turnover and higher productivity.”

Bierman’s greatest expertise is in applying assessments to the specific needs and challenges of the restaurant and hospitality industries, both of which are core markets for Assess Systems. She has developed comprehensive selection and tracking systems for hospitality clients to help them find better talent that stays longer.

Diane Ianni, Assess Systems’ vice president of marketing and sales, said the company is very excited to add Bierman to the team both because of the passionate way she manages her clients and because she brings a strong industrial and organizational psychology background into a senior account executive role.

“It’s extremely exciting for us to add someone with Lori’s knowledge and experience to our sales team,” Ianni said. “Since she is experienced with developing talent solutions from inception to implementation, she has a tremendous understanding of how companies can optimize their talent selection and development. As a result, our clients and prospects will be the biggest winners, for she can offer strategic insights to help them select the assessment solutions that will deliver them the most value.”

Bierman is a passionate supporter of The Women’s Foodservice Forum (WFF), a leadership development organization for women in the foodservice industry that she joined in 1999. She has chaired several WFF committees, including the Leadership Competency Assessment Committee, and was named the professional association’s volunteer of the year in 2008.

Bierman is married and has a 7-year-old daughter. In her spare time, she enjoys riding horses with her family.
