NovoEd is excited to introduce Ed Miller, our new President and CEO.
Ed comes to NovoEd with a deep understanding of the educational technology market. He has over 25 years of experience in the computer software industry, both as a serial entrepreneur and as an executive at several technology companies including Platinum Technology (PLAT) and Blackboard (BBBB). Ed joined Blackboard with the acquisition of Xythos, one of the first cloud storage and file management platforms, where he was CEO & President. After successfully integrating Xythos he was given responsibility for sales, operations and product development for multiple Blackboard business units. As a business unit president, he led over 350 employees and drove an excess of $140m in revenues.
Ed joins NovoEd at an exciting inflection point as a company. NovoEd has partnered with leading business schools, including Stanford, Darden, Berkeley-Haas, and Wharton, and has delivered powerful online experiences to learners around the world in skills that are traditionally difficult to teach online, such as leadership and innovation. Ed will lead the growth of the company by expanding its offerings to both educational institutions and companies such as Comcast and ING Bank where the need for more collaborative corporate training and learning is growing.
“Having worked at both enterprise software and education, I’ve seen that the biggest way to make impact in education is with the right tools and approach,” said Ed. “I could not be more excited to join the talented and passionate NovoEd team. We’ve created a unique solution that truly delivers the best online learning experience.”
He went on to joke, “Plus, I’m lucky enough to put the ‘Ed’ in NovoEd.”
