Darren Shimkus

Founder & CEO


Darren is the Founder and CEO of Modal, a cohort learning company that helps companies develop the skills their teams need to drive real and enduring impact. Prior to starting Modal, Darren led Udemy Business from the experiment stage to one of the fastest-growing SaaS businesses. When he's not thinking about building Modal, pie, and the intrinsic deliciousness of nearly all round foods, he's spending time with his wife, two daughters, and two somewhat poorly trained dogs.
