Blackboard, the ed-tech company behind the learning management system Learn, on Monday named William L. Ballhaus its new president and CEO. Ballhaus replaces Jay Bhatt, who joined the company in 2012 and led it during a period of increased competition in the U.S., expansion abroad and diversification in the products and services Blackboard offers.
In a news release, Bhatt said he was stepping aside both for personal reasons and to let the company continue its “evolution.” Ballhaus comes to Blackboard from the IT and professional services company SRA International, where he served as CEO.
