Indeed has named Priscilla Koranteng as chief people officer, reporting directly to CEO Chris Hyams. Koranteng will oversee human relations, recruiting, and Indeed’s real estate team.
“Indeed is a company making an industry I love even better,” Koranteng wrote in the hiring announcement. “Alongside the many aspects that have drawn me to this company, I’ve been so impressed by how the company lives its values, notably its commitment to inclusion and diversity, which is near to my heart as I serve on the board of the Racial Justice Institute here in the U.S.”
Koranteng brings more than 22 years of experience leading HR, talent management, and diversity, equity and inclusion functions at firms including DXC Technology, T. Rowe Price, Booz Allen Hamilton, and JPMorgan Chase.
Most recently, Koranteng was Kellogg’s global head of talent and chief diversity officer, a position she held almost three years before leaving in May.
Koranteng holds an MS in analysis design and management of information systems from the London School of Economics. She has an undergraduate degree in English and linguistics from the University of Ghana and a strategic human resources certification from Cornell University. A published author, Koranteng established the Janju Foundation, which supports education for girls in Ghana.
