Curriculum Associates CEO Named a CEO of the Year Finalist for 21st Annual Technology Leadership Awards

NORTH BILLERICA, Mass., October 5, 2018—Curriculum Associates’ CEO, Rob Waldron, has been named a finalist in the CEO of the Year category for the 2018 Mass Technology Leadership Council (MassTLC) Technology Leadership Awards. Other finalists in this category include the CEOs of Carbonite, Mimecast, Everbridge, ezCater, Care.com, UMass Lowell, Globalization Partners, LogMeIn and The Predictive Index.

Waldron is on a mission to prove to the education and technology industries that an ethical company with a long-term focus can outperform its peers and support the strongest gains for students. He believes that successful companies must have a higher purpose and promote a culture in which employees are driven by that purpose to succeed, and he has enacted numerous conscious business policies to make that a reality. Under his leadership, Curriculum Associates’ revenues and employee numbers have quintupled, making it one of the nation’s fastest-growing K–12 edtech companies. As a result of the company’s focus on employees’ growth and well-being—the human capital of the company—Curriculum Associates has earned “Top Place to Work” status from both The Boston Globe and the Boston Business Journal for the past four years.

“When I joined Curriculum Associates 10 years ago, I committed to upholding its founding mission to make classrooms better places for students and teachers,” said Waldron. “Over this past decade, we have grown tremendously from a small print company to a leading edtech provider, and we keep the best interests of the 7 million students and educators we serve at the forefront of every decision we make.”

Finalists were selected from hundreds of nominations and judged by industry leaders. Winners were announced at the MassTLC Leadership Awards Gala on October 3 at Boston’s Seaport World Trade Center.
