Education and EdTech has been Peter’s passion for the last 30+ years. He started his career working for one of the largest community colleges in Canada and pioneering the move to online learning back in the early 1990’s. He joined an early startup back in 2000 called Blackboard, built out the solution engineering group and was involved in Bb’s move to a public company. Peter left Blackboard to join the leadership team of a small company called The Learning Edge, out of Tasmanian and was the Managing Director of North America and the first person on the ground. That company was sold to Pearson four years later.
Peter’s focus to growth is centered around the “right” conversation with the market. How to help educational institutions see the broader picture instead of just leveraging technology to replicate the current approach.
As Managing Director of North America for CourseLoop, Peter will focus on building the right team, and a “trusted advisor” approach, partnering with the right educational institutions to drive growth and adoption.
