Six Red Marbles today announced that its Board of Directors has named Bob Fogel as the company’s new Chief Executive Officer.
“Bob has a deep background in education, having worked in leadership roles at both non-profit academic institutions as well as startups,” said Mike Booth, Six Red Marbles board member and partner at Calvert Street Capital Partners. “But it is Bob’s track record as an innovative leader who has achieved impressive success developing online learning programs for a wide range of students that has us most excited about him joining the Six Red Marbles team.”

“Six Red Marbles has been a leader in learner-centric design and a trusted partner to many companies in the K-12 and higher education communities,” Fogel said. “I am extremely excited to join a team of people dedicated to using technology to improve student learning experiences and help teachers, administrators and parents make better decisions about instructional materials for their kids.”
Before joining Fullbridge, Fogel held leadership positions at a number of higher education academic institutions, including the Harvard Business School, Harvard Graduate School of Education and Babson College.
