Houston, Texas, May 6, 2024 – WOOSH5, a pioneering employee coaching platform that leverages data-backed approaches to facilitate the creation of resilient, high-performing organizations, has announced that Richard A. Moran, PhD, has been appointed Chairman of the Board. The digital platform empowers individuals and teams to cultivate resilience, enhancing performance and personal satisfaction.

He has worked for or with some of the world’s leading organizations, including Accenture, Apple, American Airlines, PG&E, and many others. He served as Chairman of Nasdaq-traded company Portal Software and negotiated its sale to Oracle Corporation. He is also the author of many business books, including his latest book, ‘Never Say Whatever, How Small Decisions Make a Big Difference’.

Nicole van der Stad, CEO of WOOSH5 states, “We are excited to work closely with Rich as the company and our clients benefit from his leadership skills and experience. As we continue to support some of the worlds’ largest companies, building a world-class and profitable company is our key priority. Rich’s background in HR and organizational effectiveness, as well as his experience working with large and small companies, will be a huge asset to our management team.”

“Employees feel more stress and are stretched to the limit in their personal lives. Between work obligations and personal responsibilities, employers feel a loss in productivity when employees are challenged. Woosh5 uses proprietary diagnostics to address resilience and collects data to improve employee well-being and organizational performance. I wish I had access to this tool and data when I was running fast-moving, high-growth organizations. I’m excited to work with Nicole and her team as we continue to develop the tools and treks for our clients”, says Rich Moran.
