About Andy

Before EGP, Andy began his career developing educational software for Scholastic. After becoming Director of the Educational Technology Group, he led the creation of WiggleWorks and other award winning products. Andy then became a senior executive at Kaplan, Inc., owned by the Washington Post Company. At Kaplan, he was responsible for leading several technology enabled services businesses, both newly acquired and organically developed. He also led the migration to technology and the Internet throughout the company – a key part of a strategy of diversification from Kaplan’s test prep business.

In 2000, Andy became a General Partner in Quad Partners, a private equity firm focused exclusively on the education industry. Andy leveraged his deep education industry experience and operating ability to build successful businesses across several sub-sectors within the education industry.
