DALLAS, Sept. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cambium Learning Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: ABCD) announced today that Thomas Kalinske, Executive Chairman of Global Education Learning (GEL), an online business teaching English to non-English speaking children in Asia, was appointed as the Company's Chairman of the Board.  Mr. Kalinske has been a member of the Company's Board since February 2010. 


Mr. Kalinske has been the Executive Chairman of GEL since August 2009. He also serves as Vice Chairman of the board of LeapFrog Enterprises, Inc. Mr. Kalinske's history with LeapFrog dates back to September 1997, where he served as their CEO until June 2006, and was then the Chairman of the board of directors until February 2004. Prior to that, he served as the CEO of Knowledge Universe, Sega of America, Matchbox, Inc. and Mattel, Inc. Mr. Kalinske served on the board of directors of Blackboard, Inc. until December 2011, a University and K-12 enterprise software applications company; the board of directors of Kidzui, a safe children's Internet search and education site; the board of directors of Genyous Omnitura, a cancer drug development company; is a member of the National Board of Advisors of the University of Arizona School of Business; and is an Emeritus member of the University of Wisconsin School of Business Advisors.

Mr. Kalinske has been a leader in a number of technology, toy and education ventures, and brings extensive experience in these areas to the Board. As noted, he has served as CEO of Mattel, a leading toy manufacturer and prominent public company, and has held both the CEO and Chairman roles at Leapfrog, a publicly traded company focused on designing, developing and marketing an array of technology-based learning platforms for infants and children. Among other things, Mr. Kalinske brings to the Board his extensive experience in the areas of technology, gaming and educational ventures; areas that align closely with the Company's continuing focus on technology-based learning. His background in relevant industries and his long career of leadership as a director and as an officer of various companies, including a current directorship with a public company other than Cambium, allows Mr. Kalinske to provide the Board with pertinent strategic and business insight.
