“As the business has evolved over the past year, we’ve continued to ramp up our level of expertise in various disciplines and our accessibility to resources,” Mohare went on to say. “We recognized it was time to expand our team to accommodate that growth. Rachel’s industry experience and people management skills were exactly the kind of talent we were looking for to continue to develop our business, cultivate deeper relationships with partners and add value for our publishers.”
As Delivery Head, Falk will be responsible for the overall leadership of the Editorial Services Group and management of its resources including writing supervisors, editors, instructional designers and project managers as well as an extended network of more than 400 Subject Matter Experts and a psychometrician. Falk will also lead all US publishing operations.
