Fort Lauderdale, Florida-based educational services company Kaplan has combined its university and employer partnerships into a single unit and appointed Brandon Busteed to lead it as chief partnership officer, universities and employers. He will also retain his existing title of global head, learn-work innovation.
A writer and thought leader on innovation and education trends, Busteed joined Kaplan in 2018.
Gregory Marino, chief executive of Kaplan’s North American operations, said: “With accelerating interest in our career-readiness and career-relevance solutions, and with both universities and employers embarking on talent development and human capital transformations, it became clear we needed to establish a dedicated unit in support of our partners, and Brandon’s vision and leadership are exactly what’s needed as we look to deliver value as a multi-purpose strategic partner to universities and employers.”
Kaplan is a subsidiary of Graham Holdings Company based in Arlington, Virginia.
