Mr. Sprinkle assumed the role from former CEO Jason Aubrey on November 7, 2022, in a planned transition. Mr. Sprinkle joined MedCerts in 2018 in a combined role of Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer and has served as Chief Financial Officer since 2020. Mr. Aubrey and Mr. Sprinkle both joined MedCerts in 2018 to lead an increased focus on growing the company’s catalogue of training programs to be more accessible to a broader, more diverse student population, while also providing students more employment options and the opportunity to stack certifications or pursue degrees through transferable college credits. “I am honored to continue the important work we’re doing at MedCerts, as we have a tremendous opportunity to build on the outstanding work Jason did to keep employers and job skills at the center of everything we do,” said Mr. Sprinkle. “The urgency around upskilling talent and recruiting and retaining skilled teams, especially in medical and health fields, is ever-present for us and I look forward to continuing to serve as a reliable partner for job-seekers, trainees, and employer partners.” In his time as CFO at MedCerts, Mr. Sprinkle oversaw more than a 4x increase in enrollments and revenue while also expanding margins and overall profitability, expansion of the training catalog to include over 50 programs, and heightened focus on critical student outcomes. He also guided MedCerts to consistent placement on the Inc. 5000 list of Fastest Growing Private Companies prior to its acquisition by Stride. Prior to joining MedCerts, Mr. Sprinkle served several successful ventures as CFO and has over 20 years of business experience. In 2012, he was named “CFO of the Year” by Crain’s Detroit Business. “Our future is very bright, and I'm excited to continue leading the terrific and talented team we have at MedCerts. It is an honor to be at the helm,” said Mr. Sprinkle. “In addition to our strong student and employer growth, we’re bringing on new programs, rolling out technology solutions that are powerful and unique in the market, and aggressively building out our academic partnership model with colleges and universities.”
