August 30, 2007- ConnectEdu has added six new members to our team over the course of the past month. The new team members include Frank Vastola, Senior Vice President for Sales and Marketing, Sarah Franey, High School Account Executive, Ed Jedlicka, High School Account Manager, Matt Walsh, High School Account Executive, Ann Friedrich, College Partnerships Director, and Patrick Hughes, College Partnerships Director. We are excited to have the newest members of the ConnectEdu team on board and are looking forward to having them positively impact our growth and service to our partners.
These folks join ConnectEdu after having had successful careers as college admissions directors and/or high school college counselors. In fact, this marks the first time that two former Connect! users have joined the ConnectEdu team. Both Ed Jedlicka and Sarah Franey join ConnectEdu after having deployed Connect! into their schools as high school guidance counselors. Their understanding of the pressures facing high school college counselors and first hand knowledge of how Connect! can be used to assist counselors with their administrative burdens, allowing them to spend more time with students, will be invaluable to our current and future high school partners. Welcome to the new members of the team!
