Mindbody’s latest business move involves the onboarding of Meisha Sherman as the company’s new Chief People Officer. Sherman, who is a graduate of Pepperdine University’s Graziadio Business School, will spearhead a number of crucial efforts for the online health, wellness and fitness platform’s continued growth
Software-as-a-service company Mindbody has found its new Chief People Officer in Meisha Sherman. The former vice president of Global Human Resources for Envista Corporation will be in charge of multiple verticals such as professional development and talent acquisition. In addition, Sherman will lead business efforts in regards to Mindbody’s “Diversity, Equity, Inclusivity and Belonging” initiative, involving a multitude of subgroups (mindbody pride, mindbody veterans, mindbody parents, for example) under the umbrella.
In regards to the news, Sherman expressed the following in a press release, “As I join Mindbody, I am taking my experience at the intersection of technology and wellness and using it to make a difference in an industry that I am truly passionate about. In addition to guiding traditional HR initiatives, I aim to work with Mindbody leadership to further the company’s DEIB focus and continue their efforts in establishing a workplace where everyone feels seen and represented.”
Mindbody CEO Josh McCarter also stated, “As Mindbody and ClassPass team members have joined forces to bring more wellness experiences to more people, I can’t think of a better time to welcome Meisha to Mindbody. With a proven ability to mobilize purpose-driven teams, I look forward to working closely with Meisha to grow and inspire our team members across the globe.”
In addition to her former VP role with Envista, Meisha Sherman was also the global vice president of Human Resources for the Danaher Corporation, global senior director of Human Resources for Hewlett Packard Enterprise, and director of Human Resources for Randstad, among other impressive leadership positions. She received an MBA degree from Pepperdine University’s esteemed Graziadio Business School and was a founding member of the Pepperdine University Black Alumni Council.
Mindbody has made several other significant business moves within the year. In 2021, the company acquired monthly subscription service ClassPass in a deal which further expanded its fitness and wellness network. Designed as a “technology platform for the fitness, wellness and beauty industries,” Mindbody has been certified as a “Great Place to Work,” thanks to 81% of its employees having made this claim.
