“We’re at an exciting time in the growth of our company and are well positioned to accelerate that growth and illustrate to a broader audience what excellence in online learning really looks like," said Furqan Nazeeri, Partner, ExtensionEngine.

ExtensionEngine, a leading provider of custom learning experiences, today announced it has expanded its leadership team with two executive appointments: Dr. Gerald DiGiusto as Vice President of Strategy and Bill King as Principal Learning Strategist; and is creating new online learning programs for clients in the higher education, nonprofit and corporate sectors. The company also announced it was recently named a ‘Best Learning System: Continuing Education’ in the 2019 Talented Learning Awards.

DiGiusto and King both bring to ExtensionEngine extensive experience in the education sector. DiGiusto was most recently Vice President of Strategy and Marketing at Motivis Learning.
