New outreach and adoption leadership combines higher education and edtech expertise

1/28/2019 – Boston, MA

PlatformQ Education, the leader in online engagement strategies and software for higher education, recently introduced their two newest team members as well as recent leadership realignment to lead growth and adoption of the Conduit online engagement platform.

Andrew McMahon has joined PlatformQ Education as it’s new Vice President of Sales. McMahon joins the team from Lucid Software, a SaaS diagramming and charting solution provider, where he managed both annual subscription and license growth, and was a President’s Club leader, winning the Strategic Account Manager Award in Q1 2018 as the top performer. Andrew has multiple years of higher education technology experience, having served as a sales leader at Chegg.

Additionally, David Ross is returning to the PlatformQ Education team as its Director of Client Partnerships. David supported partners at PlatformQ Education from 2011-2013, and for the past few years has lead HubSpot’s higher education sales efforts and spent the last year at BlackBaud, a leading cloud solution provider for higher education.

“As we continue to scale it is ever important that we bring on leaders who understand the needs of our unique client base with the foresight to continue to help us grow and expand our offerings. The additions of Andrew and David come at the perfect time to empower our team on both fronts.” said Robert Rosenbloom, President and CEO of PlatformQ Education.

With these new arrivals, Mike Garvin will now assume the role of SVP of Client Strategy and Consulting. Leveraging his domain knowledge and experience, he will be focused on supporting the development of effective online engagement strategies supported by the Conduit platform to help our college and university partners efficiently and effectively meet their enrollment goals. Additionally, Gil Rogers will now assume the role of SVP of Marketing and Strategic Partnerships and continue to manage the company’s marketing and client success teams as well as forge partnerships with mission-aligned organizations within higher education and education technology.
