K12 Inc. Appoints Nathaniel Davis Executive Chairman

K12 Inc. (NYSE: LRN), the nation's largest provider of proprietary curriculum and online education programs for students in kindergarten through high school, today announced the strengthening of its leadership team with the appointment of Nathaniel Davis as Executive Chairman of the Board of Directors, with oversight over all operational and corporate functions of the company. Mr. Davis will continue in his capacity as Chairman of the Board and will assume his expanded responsibilities effective immediately.

Ron Packard, who founded K12 in 2000, will continue as Chief Executive Officer, reporting to Mr. Davis, with a focus on continuing the company’s growth and pursuing new opportunities to fulfill its mission of providing a high-quality education to any child, anywhere.

Timothy Murray will continue in his role as President and Chief Operating Officer, also reporting to Mr. Davis. Separately, K12 announced the appointment of Margaret Jorgensen as Chief Academic Officer, reporting to Mr. Packard.

Mr. Davis stated, “Thanks to the tremendous vision of Ron Packard and the skills and dedication of its world-class employees, K12 has reached a new stage of opportunity in the growth and development of both the company and our industry. As we continue to lead the transformation to technology-based individualized learning, we need to expand our management team while assuring operational, financial and academic excellence. These changes in the K12 executive team will help us achieve those goals, in particular as Ron builds on his role as innovator, entrepreneur and evangelist for our company and the industry.”

Mr. Packard added, “The strengthening of K12’s leadership team is an important part of our evolution to ensure that our future growth matches our past achievements. Academic excellence is critical to K12’s success and we look forward to continuously improving the value we provide to schools and students.”
