Nerdery, a premier digital product consultancy, announces the addition of Rachel Alm to its leadership team as vice president of People Operations. Alm brings more than 12 years of leadership and human resources experience across numerous industries to the position.
As head of People Operations, Alm is responsible for cultivating Nerdery’s talent growth strategy and continuing to support and enhance Nerdery’s positive working culture. These initiatives will include driving performance through data insights, employee reward programs and employer branding strategies.
“Rachel will have a significant impact on the future of this company,” said Nerdery CEO Michael Schmidt. “Her ability to nurture new employee relationships and maintain a highly engaged culture is the perfect complement to Nerdery’s vision and values and ultimately supports our mission to deliver exceptional digital products.”

Prior to Sportsdigita, she held a number of human resource-related roles, including several leadership positions.
