Los Angeles — April 25
LRN, a provider of ethics and compliance solutions, has announced that Dr. Steve Kerr, former managing director and chief learning officer at Goldman Sachs, has joined LRN.
Kerr, an innovator of corporate learning and leadership development, is helping LRN develop tools, strategies and approaches for developing lawful and ethical corporate cultures that drive productivity, performance and competitive advantage.
“Steve is one of those rare individuals with great intellect and practical solutions for impacting positive change within major corporations,” said Dov Seidman, LRN chairman and CEO. “His views on corporate culture and leadership development have influenced and shaped my own over the years. With Steve joining the organization, he will now help bring these ideas to life at our client companies.”
Kerr will play a hands-on role working with LRN clients to develop the leadership capabilities, workplace environments and change management strategies that evolve organizations from rules-based to values-driven cultures.
“I have long admired Dov for his understanding of the fact that success comes from going beyond what you have the right to do to doing what is right,” Kerr said. “My joining LRN reflects both my admiration for his firm and a desire to help deliver real-world solutions that put this simple truth into business practice.”
From 2001 to 2006, Kerr was managing director and chief learning officer at Goldman Sachs.
From 1994 to 2001, he was vice president of leadership development and chief learning officer for General Electric, where his responsibilities included for GE’s renowned leadership education center at Crotonville.
He was previously on the faculties of Ohio State University, the University of Southern California and the University of Michigan, and he was dean of the faculty of the USC business school from 1985 to 1989.
Kerr is the former president of the Academy of Management, the world’s largest association of academicians in management. He is an acknowledged author, editor and commentator.
He is a member of the board of directors of Harvard Business School Publishing; the board of advisers of the Wharton School/University of Pennsylvania GSE’s program in work-based learning leadership; and the board of advisers of the LRN-RAND Center on Corporate Ethics, Law and Governance.
He is also a senior advisory committee member for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
