Interim Managing Director for Scholastic Education

In this role for almost a year, I developed and implemented a successful business turnaround strategy, achieving 11% revenue growth and a significant improvement in operating margin. I transformed the business processes and disciplines that supported commercial decision-making within the book and magazine publishing businesses and developed proposals for a management restructuring that significantly improved effective workflow and reduced operating expenses. I managed and motivated 35 staff and worked closely with the senior management teams of Scholastic UK and Scholastic Inc.
