EdTech provider Education Perfect has appointed Mr Jonathan Morgan as its new CEO to lead the organisation into its next stage of growth.
Morgan brings more than 24 years of experience in operational business roles, in addition to his expertise leading and supporting the success of Software as a service (or SaaS) businesses.
He was most recently the chief growth officer at Symend, an SaaS company focused on the science of consumer behaviour.
Morgan previously spent more than 10 years at cloud-based mobile messaging company OpenMarket, where he was promoted to CEO. Morgan’s portfolio spans senior roles at global engineering, technology and marketing organisations across Australia, the US and the UK.
Education Perfect board chair Ms Helen Souness said that Morgan’s appointment was an important next step in the organisation’s journey towards further global expansion.
“After an extensive global search for our new CEO, we were thrilled to meet Jonathan, a seasoned software-as-a-service leader with experience growing companies, as well as leading highly engaged geographically dispersed teams,” she said.
“Jonathan also had a strong affinity with our teachers and our focus on giving them the content, insights and time they need to deliver the best learning outcomes for their K-12 students. We are thrilled to see him step in to lead Education Perfect through our next stage of growth and global scale.”
Education Perfect is Australia and New Zealand’s leading learning, assessment and analytics platform, and is a global challenger in the EdTech sector, serving more than 5,000 schools and 1.8 million students worldwide.
Recent survey results indicate that 98% of teachers agree that the organisation provides tools that adapt to the needs of every student, ultimately saving teachers time and elevating learning outcomes.
Morgan, who recently relocated to Australia with his family, said he was honoured to be chosen to lead the Education Perfect team into a new chapter, and is pleased to step into a role which could give back to the community.
“I’m passionate about working with people – to me it’s all about reinvesting in your team and the job’s made that much simpler when surrounded by those who love what they do and are committed to the vision,” he said.
“I have a nine-year-old and a twelve-year-old in school and my wife works in education as well, so working to improve education and make it more equitable for all is a natural next step for me. I’m honoured to join a team of people who share these values and can’t wait to work alongside them to continue Education Perfect’s global expansion and make a difference to all educators and learners.”
