In this role, Sherman will be responsible for managing the primary functions within Hogan’s industry-leading research department, including client research, product development and maintenance, and Hogan’s research archive and infrastructure.
“We’re thrilled to have Ryne join the Hogan team,” says Hogan CEO Scott Gregory. “He’s been an incredible asset to our organization in recent years through the work he’s done with our research team, and he has positioned himself as one of the premier thought leaders in the world of personality psychology.”
Sherman is currently an associate professor at Texas Tech University, and prior to that he taught at Florida Atlantic University where he was recognized as the FAU College of Science Distinguished Teacher of the Year in 2013. In addition, his research on the psychological properties of situations and their interaction with personality has been awarded federal support from the National Science Foundation, and in 2016 he was named a “Rising Star” by the Association for Psychological Science.
“It truly is an honor to join the world’s leading provider of personality assessments and leadership solutions,” says Sherman. “I’ve been a huge advocate for Hogan over the years, and this is a tremendous opportunity for me to apply my background in personality psychology to improve the global workforce.”
Sherman received his B.A. in Psychology and History from Monmouth College, and completed his Ph.D. in Personality/Social Psychology from the University of California, Riverside. He will officially assume the role of Chief Science Officer in June upon completion of his teaching commitments at Texas Tech.
