PSI Services’ Steve Tapp Maintains Top Position in World Exam Tech Top 20 CEOs

March 6, 2019

Glendale, CA – For the second consecutive year, PSI CEO Steve Tapp has been named the number one CEO on World Exam Tech’s Top 20 list.

World Exam Tech (WET) is an industry newsletter that provides updates on technologies being used across formative, diagnostic and summative assessment. The WET tracks, monitors and reports on matters that aid the knowledge and understanding of the exam tech sector. Each year, the WET considers organizations and individuals who have an impact across global exam technologies in terms of influence, candidate volume, innovation and global profile for its Top 20 Report. Potential honorees are considered within their home country and region, as well as globally. The wider an organization or individual’s global scale, the higher positioning they are likely to receive from the WET.

PSI and CEO Steve Tapp are representative of the global scale World Exam Tech takes into consideration. “In the last twelve months, PSI has led the pack by a combination of rapid, complimentary acquisitions, leading its business to growth, coupled with new business wins and successful customer retention. With 15 acquisitions in the last two years, PSI is intent on setting the agenda for global assessment and exam technology,” the WET noted in February’s Top 20 Report. “Claiming over 2,000 test locations and delivering over 13 million assessments per year, PSI’s growth has enabled it to gain traction outside of the United States.”

Steve Tapp credits the team at PSI for this recognition: “It truly is a testament to the team here at PSI.  These awards are never really for one individual, but for the whole of the organization and the success we’ve had together in the last few years.”

Helen Chapman, editor and publisher of World Exam Tech, echoed this sentiment by noting the organization’s overall dedication to both evidence-based research and robust technology. “PSI’s global growth, combined with its intent to not only scale its business, but to ensure it has the right assessment instrument mix within its business, mark it as a leader in the global assessment space,” said Chapman. “From remote proctoring to evidence-based hiring assessment solutions to emotional intelligence testing content, PSI embodies all facets that the WET considers best in class.”
