The Software Report is pleased to announce The Top 25 Education Software CEOs of 2019. The education and training sector represents one of our most important industries because of how it can impact society and transform the lives of individuals. And when technology and software can play a critical role in making education more effective, we all benefit. These exceptional CEOs were selected based on nomination submissions from colleagues, peers and other software industry participants. Many of this year’s awardees have demonstrated a deep commitment to the education and training sector and a passion for improving learning outcomes in local, global and corporate areas.

Nominees were reviewed across a number of key attributes including integrity, intellect, drive, emotional intelligence, organizational culture and operational skill. They were most closely evaluated based on qualitative and substantive commentary provided on the CEO’s character.

Topping this year’s list are Walt MacDonald (ETS), Jamie Candee (Edmentum), Matt Cooper (Skillshare), and Kevin Michielsen (Watermark). Other notable mentions include Hardeep Gulati (PowerSchool) and Tim Vipond (Corporate Finance Institute).

Jamie Candee built her career in education with unwavering dedication and step by step learned what it takes to lead a large organization. She held a number of different roles over the years, which equipped her with the right experience and strategic insights she now uses for leading in business. Matt Cooper, meanwhile, has had experience in education as well as workforce platforms such as Visually and oDesk. He arrived to Skillshare in 2016, originally as COO before becoming CEO the following year, and while with the company has it to over 8 million users.

Please join us in congratulating each of this year's awardees.
