Houghton Mifflin, SIIA’s Edtech Division Name New Leaders

Feb 18, 2017

A couple of leadership vacancies were filled this week:

Education publisher Houghton Mifflin Harcourt tapped John “Jack” Lynch, who formerly led Renaissance Learning, as its new CEO. Lynch will be taking over for L. Gordon Crovitz, who held that position on an interim basis following after Linda Zecher resigned last September. This move leaves Renaissance looking for a new leader; its chief financial officer, Mike Evans is CEO for the time being.

The Software & Information Industry Association also announced that Bridget Foster will be Managing Director of its Education Technology Industry Network, which represents roughly 200 edtech companies. A former high school science and math teacher, Foster has also cut her teeth in edtech organizations including Digital Promise, Steelcase and SchoolNet.
