Growth is the theme of Nicola Soares’ leadership as president of Kelly Education. This year, she expanded Kelly’s footprint beyond the K-12 landscape into early childhood, special needs and higher education across the US along with guiding the company’s successful acquisition of Insight, an education service staffing company, further broadening Kelly’s reach. A former educator herself, Soares brings an insider’s understanding of the needs of the educators, students and talent and is passionate about the need to rebuild America’s education workforce. With more than 20 years of experience, Soares has held positions in product innovation, sales, marketing and operations, all with educational organizations.
