Voxy brings a seasoned education technology executive on board to help expand into new global markets
Voxy is pleased to announce that Timothy L. Murray will join its board of directors as Executive Chairman.
“I’m thrilled to welcome Tim to the Voxy team,” said Voxy CEO Paul Gollash. “When I met Tim during his tenure at K12, I was impressed with his deep understanding of technology products and his experience building global organizations that can bring them to market. Tim’s track record of running successful public and private software businesses will provide the board and management team with an incredibly valuable perspective as Voxy opens new markets and new channels.”
Mr. Murray is an accomplished executive with decades of experience working for successful public and private companies. Most recently, Timothy L. Murray joined K12 Inc. (LRN) in April 2012 as President and Chief Operating Officer, where he continued through December 2015. He has also held executive positions at Pulsepoint, Inc., Datran Media, Dialogic Inc., Cross Match Technologies and Riversoft Plc.
Mr. Murray is currently the Chairman of the Board of Middlebury Interactive Languages, the CEO of Redline Speed Worx and a Director of Clarke Group. He is also an Operating Advisor to Red Oak Growth Partners.
Mr. Murray began his career at AT&T in 1980, and over the next 20 years was promoted to positions of increasing responsibility, including in sales, marketing, operations, engineering and product management. He left AT&T in 2001 after serving as Executive Vice President, Business Service Operations.
“Voxy is the first purpose-built, scalable platform for English language learning that I’ve seen,” said Mr. Murray. “While old-line education publishers struggle to transition to a digital world, the Voxy platform is adaptive, data-driven and mobile-first. And Voxy’s patented technology that dynamically creates learning content at an extremely low cost is truly game-changing. These are huge competitive advantages that, along with a resolute focus on efficacy, will uniquely address the future needs of the $100B+ ELL market.”
“Tim’s experience building global distribution networks for high-quality education products like Middlebury Interactive Languages will be a huge asset as we grow,” said Voxy Chief Education Officer Dr. Katharine Nielson.
