We’re thrilled that she has chosen to put her respected skills to work for O’Reilly, and we’re confident she’ll play a pivotal role in driving our organization forward.”

Previously, Kublall was the vice president of strategic finance and analytics for Blink Fitness (part of the Equinox Group). Prior to that, she served as vice president of corporate strategic planning and investor relations at global performance lifestyle brand Cole Haan. Her additional finance-related roles included investment banking at JPMorgan and corporate strategy at J.Crew.

“I’m excited and humbled to join such an iconic company at a time when market demand for enterprise learning, particularly tech learning, continues to grow at accelerated rates,” said Kublall. “The opportunity to equip modern workers with the essential skills to stay ahead in an ever-changing economy is tremendously inspiring, and I’m thrilled to join the entire team at O’Reilly who are driving this transformation forward.”

O’Reilly’s company growth is driven by market demand for learning and training technology to help close the escalating skills gap that continues to challenge businesses across industries. Teams at more than 60% of the Fortune 100 use O’Reilly to help educate their technical workforces.

“Today more than ever, people and businesses are seeking O’Reilly’s learning platform to build the technical skills they need to achieve career success.
