Ready’s strong fundamentals – a broad portfolio of engagement products, impressive global scale, and a talented team – provide a springboard for further growth and innovation, and I am honored to join the Ready Education team and to serve higher education institutions globally, while prioritizing student success in a rapidly evolving digital world.”
