Our Story

People at the Heart of All Organizations

  1. How It All Began

    Our organization was founded in 1991 by two entrepreneurs in Waco, Texas. The company started under the name Profiles International® with the mission to help organizations across the world thrive by creating high-performing workforces. And so, our first product was born, The Profile. This product evolved to become our flagship product: ProfileXT®.

    Expanded Our Reach

    Thanks to a network of partners who share our vision to create high-performing workforces and strategic HR consulting expertise, Profiles International grew its global footprint. We expanded our portfolio of products to specialize in sales, customer service, and leadership roles—making us an internationally recognized assessment provider.

    Slowly, we also expanded our reach to offer enterprise solutions and grew our portfolio of direct clients through our exceptional team of account managers.

  3. Wiley Acquisition

    In 2014, John Wiley & Sons acquired Profiles International, and a new era began. Combining Profiles 20+ years of rigorous validation and Wiley’s research and publishing excellence, The PXT Select® brand was born.
