Doyle, also a founder of the company, will continue his role as Chairman of the Board of Directors.
“It has been an extremely rewarding 16 years, building Taskstream from the ground up to become the thoughtful leader for assessment and accreditation that it has become,” said former CEO, Kevin Doyle. “However, I felt that it was time for me to pass the baton to the next generation of leadership and Kevin [Michielsen] comes to us highly recommended.”

“Kevin [Doyle] has been a tremendous leader for Taskstream and it is an honor to be able to continue his legacy,” said, Michielsen. “The future is bright at Taskstream and well-earned. I have been overwhelmed by the passion and commitment that I have seen from every one of my new colleagues. I am flattered to be joining the team at Taskstream and have every confidence that we will continue to be leaders and innovators in the assessment and accreditation space. This new phase will not only lead us to continued successes as a company, but more importantly, for our clients and the students that they serve.”
