...
"I have had the pleasure of working with June Herold in both a consulting capacity as well as a senior member of the consumer products team here at The Learning Company; a division of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. June displayed enormous talent for understanding products, technology and customers. In addition, she showed great ability to access outside third party resources against internal project needs. June possesses a unique combination of experience and understanding for both the K12 and consumer markets in both customer and solution demands. This understanding helped bridge products and content to feed ideas into our product plan. She was creative in developing solutions to satisfy customer needs with assets available to her and contributed significantly to business development initiatives. June was a significant asset to the team." -- Tony Bordon, former President Consumer Products and Solutions, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, managed June

"June and I worked together in the development of products that continue to be core to my divisions emerging business. She valued structure and working to objectives yet promoted open dialogue and encouraged autonomy so people could get on and do their jobs. She recognized talent and promoted people whenever contributions warranted it. Her ability to draw out real issues was complemented by a determination that meant that she would not shy away from asking some tough questions, of vendors, partners and internal peers. Her desire for understanding the detail also exhibited itself in the creative contributions she made in product/platform design, sometimes with a view to challenging the norm and considering alternatives. June wasn't reluctant to embracing new challenges." -- Theresa Hunt, former Director Social Games, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, reported to June

"I had the privilege of having June Herold on the Saywire team during our product rebuild. June brought an extensive array of valuable insight, knowledge, and experience with her during this time of development. Whether discussing the application UI or laying the foundation for future enhancements to the program, June never failed to provide invaluable recommendations based on her vast experience in education technology. June was also instrumental in coordinating several efforts with key members of the education technology field and guided these projects through to their completion thoroughly and in a timely fashion. In the infancy of our company, June stepped in and was able to instantly align us with several key publications for exposure and press coverage in a manner that only experience and credibility in this industry can afford. Interestingly and most notably, June's experiences in educational software development as well as achievements in her personal career, while impressive, do not interfere with her ability to embrace and build upon thoughts and ideas yet unproven and tested. It was in these circumstances that her willingness to listen, coupled with her knowledge and experience in the industry, propelled the incubation process into a deployed reality." --Josh Hoover, CTO & Founder, Saywire managed June at Saywire

"June and I worked together for the past 5+ years at ePals and at AOL. She left AOL to help me launch new curriculum based products and build infrastructure here at ePals. As is common in companies of this size June also contributed her expertise in marketing, business formulation and recruiting, both through her contacts and within the Senior executive team. Prior to ePals, June reported me in similar roles at AOL. I know June to be a dedicated, committed and principled professional. Many of the success my teams have derived over the years stem directly from June's energy, leadership and will to win. I strongly recommend June for any Senior position involving creation and deployment of innovative online products and services."--Ed Fish, President & CEO, ePals Inc. managed June at ePals I strongly recommend June for any Senior position involving creation and deployment of innovative online products and services."--Ed Fish, President & CEO, ePals Inc. managed June at ePals

"I have worked for June since 1999 (ICQ, AIM, AOL Personal Finance, AOLPremium Education Services and most recently, ePals Inc.) She evokes excellence from her employees by encouraging and enabling it. At ePals, I was her director of product development. She gave me freedom to execute a complicated online e-learning service. She gave me the time to do it right, ensured organizational distractions stayed at bay, and patiently read and vetted nearly all documentation, adding important insights that bettered the product in many ways. She encouraged me to take the time I needed to participate in the school activities of my kids, which meant a lot to my family and me. Finally, I can't count the number of times June went to bat for me. Given opportunities over the last eight years,I have always leapt at the chance to work closely with her. I would do it again in a heartbeat." --Will Schermerhorn, Product Development Director, ePals reported to June at ePals
...
"June recruited me into ePals for my position as VP of Education, after getting to know my work when I consulted for her at AOL Education Services. At ePals, June's coaching was instrumental in getting me up to speed quickly by explaining company strategy and processes. She kept me informed of decisions, projects and progress toward our goals so that I had information that would help me do my job better -- even though I didn't report to her. She was always professional, respectful and encouraging. When I consulted for June at AOL, I was impressed with her business plan and strategy for developing a home-to-school connection for supplemental elearning products and services. She understands what it takes to make products that families and schools will use and then she makes them engaging and fun. She is a highly skilled communicator and asks deep questions about core issues. Through her multiple work experiences, she has gathered much knowledge and insight that she applies to new challenges." --Rita Oates, Vice President, ePals worked indirectly for June at ePals

"June did an excellent job in helping establish the education business at AOL. She was there all along the way, from formulating the strategy, to determining the initial product areas, to shaping the design of the products, to shepherding them through construction and then launching them successfully into the market. The products she launched were all first rate (e.g., Writing Wizard, etc.), and some even garnered industry awards. June has unique breadth of skill, able to handle marketing, product and engineering management.

When June took the reins of the group responsible for creating new paid-for services and also free education products, she reached out to me to form a partnership that would combine our efforts and win for both of us. Our teams worked together and ensured that we leveraged our strengths and resources. As an example of this collaboration, when June secured external resources to launch a new search engine, StudyBuddy.com, she extended them to cover search improvements AOL@School needed as well. Our teams could have fought against each other but June made it easy for us to combine forces and for us both to be on a winning path. I look forward to working with June in the future." --Mark D. Stevens, Executive Director/ GM AOL@SCHOOL worked with June at AOL

June also helped my group analyze other products it was working on. She values her partners and wants to help ensure their success. June is a detail-oriented, forward-thinking leader. She understands the application of vision to real-market situations. I enjoyed working with her." --Chuck Cascio, VP Public Affairs, the Educational Testing Service was a business partner of June's
