Senior Vice President and Managing Director, McGraw-Hill Education

Zach Posner, senior vice president at McGraw-Hill Education (MHE), is the managing director of the learning science platforms team, working to license MHE’s adaptive learning platforms to corporations, publishers, and colleges globally. Grounded in research and refined over the course of a decade by millions of students, thousands of authors, and nine petabytes of digital content, the platforms leverage MHE’s expansive reach and scale by delivering personalized learning experiences that empower more efficient and effective learning. Scalable and easy-to-use, the platforms offer authoring, delivery, and reporting capabilities that not only allow authors and designers to continuously improve their content, but also enable instructors to tailor their class based on learner engagement, progress, and outcomes.

Zach joined MHE through the acquisition of Engrade, where he was the CEO and co-founder. Engrade is an instructional management platform that integrates systems, data, and tools into a single cloud-based platform that connects more than 10 million administrators, teachers, students, and parents today. Zach led Engrade from corporate formation to growth and exit, and in the process successfully raised several rounds of financing from leading venture capital firms, including Rethink Education and Javelin Venture Partners. Prior to Engrade, Zach led digital activities at media companies and worked in finance and venture capital. In recent years, he served as an adjunct professor at the Annenberg School of Communications at the University of Southern California. He holds a bachelor of science in business from Indiana University, Bloomington.
