RED EDUCATION ANNOUNCES A CHANGE IN LEADERSHIP

Executive management change follows the departure of Managing Director Rob Howard

 

SYDNEY — May. 04, 2018 —Red Education Pty Ltd today announced a transition of leadership after Rob Howard, Managing Director, sold his shares to Red Education’s co-founder, Daniel Storey.

Red Education was founded in 2005 by Rob and Daniel. Throughout the years they were able to draw on their motivational skills and determination to tackle all challenges of growing a small business in the IT market. They succeeded in transforming Red Education from a start-up company being run from a home office to a multi-national company that covers all of the Asia Pacific Region. After nearly 15 years, Rob has decided it was time to leave the company.

With this news, Daniel Storey’s position in the company changes from Technical Director to Managing Director, responsible for the company’s overall continued success.

“The future is looking very bright for Red Education.  We continue to invest in the APAC region and in Australia to ensure we deliver the best training experience to our clients and continue to grow every year.” Commented Daniel.

Rob Howard, now former Managing Director, said: “Red Education will continue to provide the outstanding learning experience that it is known for. I wish everyone involved all the very best for the future.”

Daniel Storey is pleased to announce the appointment of Zach Zuravle as Executive Director of Sales and Operations. Zach joined Red Education in 2014 and has been the Sales Manager of the ANZ region until now. With his track record as a rigorous and dynamic manager, he is the logical choice to ensure the organization’s continuing success.

“I’m confident that Zach, with his experience from Global Knowledge and his last four years at Red Education, will be the best successor of Rob Howard. I see him as a great leader for a future of continuous growth and guaranteed quality.” commented Daniel.

Zach noted: “I have been very fortunate to spend over 4 years learning the Red Education’s business under a great mentor in Rob. I wish Rob all the best on his new journey and look forward to building an excellent future with Dan.”

Red Education Thanks Rob Howard for all his contributions and wishes him all the best in his future endeavours.
