Think Through Learning, creators of Think Through Math, the award-winning web-based math instructional system for grades 3 and above, announced the promotion of Jim Martin to the role of Senior Vice President of Sales, responsible for leading the company’s rapid expansion of its sales efforts in the K-12 and higher education markets. Martin replaces Traci Burgess, who is leaving the organization to take over the role of CEO for a data analytics company serving the K-20 education market.
Martin brings nearly 20 years of sales experience in both the K-12 and higher education technology markets, having held progressively broader executive roles within companies such as Blackboard, Cengage Learning and Parature. Prior to joining Think Through Learning, Martin served as a regional vice president within the Blackboard’s K-12 division, where he was responsible for leading sales and client success teams for their learning management and communications product lines.
“I joined Think Through Learning because their passion for improving math achievement resonates strongly with me,” said Martin. “Educators need partners like Think Through Math, which has a proven track record of delivering outstanding academic results for students. With Think Through Math’s research-based program, schools and districts can significantly improve the math understanding of every student.”

Under Jim’s leadership, we will rapidly expand into more schools, districts and states by partnering with educators to implement our unique solution of online instruction and on-demand live tutoring.”
