Online Charter School Operator K12 Names New CEO

K12, a for-profit operator of online charter schools, has named Stuart J. Udell as its CEO. Udell previously served as the CEO of Catapult Learning, a provider of K12 instructional services and professional development. K12 said in a statement that Udell doubled Catapult's revenue during his tenure. He also worked for 11 years at Kaplan, finishing his term there as president of Kaplan K12 Learning Services.

According to Edweek Market Brief, Udell replaces Nathaniel Davis, who will remain at the company as executive chairman of its board of directors. K12 has been a hotbed of activity of late, launching a foundation after facing a chaotic shareholder meeting when investors censured the former CEO for high pay.
