Sharon Schwarzmiller has been appointed as marketing senior vice president.

In this role, Schwarzmiller will accelerate the growth of one of education technology's fastest-growing companies while maintaining its tradition of excellence in thought leadership and transformational research.

Schwarzmiller joined Modern Campus in January as vice president for solutions marketing after seven years in executive marketing roles at Cengage.

She has significant experience leading robust and innovative marketing organisations in the EdTech arena, having also led teams at Pearson North America and Flat World Knowledge, among others.

"Accelerating our rapid growth requires innovation, creativity, passion, and customer obsession at every level of the organisation," Modern Campus CEO Brian Kibby says.

"Sharon is an expert in integrated marketing, with a long-standing record of excellence.

"With Sharon, anything is possible. We are excited to have her join the senior executive team at Modern Campus."

Modern Campus has experienced tremendous growth since its launch in February 2021.

The company acquired interactive campus map and virtual tour provider nuCloud in early 2021, followed by academic catalog and curriculum management provider DIGARC and student engagement and development leader Presence.

In January of this year, Modern Campus announced its acquisitions of leading higher education text-messaging provider Signal Vine and Augusoft, a leader in enrollment management for continuing education and corporate education programs.

"When you see the kind of growth Modern Campus has experienced in one year, it's impossible not to be excited," Schwarzmiller says.

"Being able to lead this group of creative and talented marketers and to help accelerate the organisation's growth trajectory at the same time is the opportunity of a lifetime.

"Anyone would be fortunate to be a part of this team, and I'm excited to build on its already exceptional reputation."
