Ready4, the company revolutionizing mobile learning, today announced the appointment of experienced higher education executive Steve Isaac to its board of directors. Isaac’s three decades of experience as an educator and executive bring a new level of strategic value to Ready4 as it continues to grow its university partnership network and consumer user base.
Most recently, Isaac founded and led the Forbes Education Initiative, a joint venture with Forbes Media that focused on the development of graduate level business education programs. Prior to Forbes, he was the CEO and founding partner of EducationDynamics, a leading provider of online marketing support to higher education. He also served on the faculty of the executive MBA program in Virginia Commonwealth University’s School of Business, where he developed and directed the business planning track and was the managing director of The Interactive Marketing Institute. Currently, Isaac serves on the boards of two privately held companies, RuffaloNoelLevitz and Ashworth College, where he is the chairman.
“Today’s higher education market is changing rapidly with more digital learning solutions available than ever before,” said Isaac. “Ready4 offers a mobile outlet for institutions and students alike, creating a direct and effective channel between the two that previously did not exist. It’s an exciting time to be involved on the organization’s board, and I’m looking forward to helping Ready4 realize its potential to help students and schools.”
Isaac’s appointment to the board follows Ready4’s recent news that the company signed more than 30 universities worldwide since the second half of 2016, including Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Georgetown University, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Boston College and Monash University. The company has worked with more than 500 universities to date to assist with admissions, recruiting and marketing for targeting prospective students. With its suite of seven free apps that prepare students for entrance exams through to admission, Ready4 has more than 1.56 million mobile users—more than Kaplan and Princeton Review combined—that span more than 195 countries.
“As a company that prides itself on leading the next generation of marketing and enrollment services for higher education institutions, we know that Steve’s education expertise will add a tremendous amount of value to Ready4’s board,” said Elad Shoushan, Ready4 founder and CEO. “With his contributions and strategic insight, we are confident that Ready4 will continue to provide the best adaptive mobile test prep solutions, democratizing learning for students across the world.”
