Our Leadership Team
SHEVY LEVY | CEO
Shevy’s passion for blending technology with learning began in Israel where she was involved in the academic side of science and used different technologies for teaching gifted students. Leveraging this life work and tapping into her entrepreneurial talent for building companies, she founded Lambda Solutions in 2002 as the CEO. In 2018, she also closed on the sale of another successful business venture that she co-founded.
In a pioneering spirit, Shevy and her team noticed a big gap in the under-served corporate mid-market for eLearning and focused on serving this segment. Moving to a SaaS model provided the foundation for Lambda to deliver an exceptional customer experience and achieve year over year growth. Shevy continues to take Lambda Solutions forward as a cutting-edge company that nurtures innovation with the launch of Zoola Analytics™ — a software product that is quickly gaining traction and has won several important industry awards.
Shevy taps into her creative side by spending time in her art studio and her paintings frequently show at galleries. She has started a mentorship group for young women interesting in the fine art of combining business with artistic pursuits, and how to be successful at both.
