Academic Partnerships Appoints Karl Engkvist as Executive Vice President of Business Development for Asia Pacific
DALLAS (September 10, 2014) - Academic Partnerships (AP), one of the world's largest representatives of online learning, today announced that it has appointed Karl Engkvist as executive vice president of business development for Asia Pacific. In this role, Mr. Engkvist will be responsible for establishing and managing partnerships with universities across the region as AP rapidly expands into the Asian market. He will report to AP Chairman and CEO Randy Best.
Mr. Engkvist joins AP from Pearson, where he was a senior vice president of business development based in Hong Kong, responsible for the development of Pearson's strategies to capitalize on the accelerating adoption of educational technologies in the region. Mr. Engkvist drove the company's initiative to use its English as a Second Language business as a platform for greater collaboration with central, provincial, and municipal governments, and developed an innovative partnership model that strengthened the company's relationships with universities across Asia Pacific.
"I am delighted that Karl has joined the AP team," said Randy Best.

Mr. Engkvist added, "AP is ideally positioned to help meet the tremendous demand for post-secondary education throughout Asia Pacific. I am looking forward to leading its expansion efforts in this vibrant market and contributing to the success of AP and our partner universities."
Before joining Pearson, Mr. Engkvist was the chief operating officer of the student recruitment consultancy Campus Direct.
Prior to that, he spent more than a decade with Blackboard, where he held senior positions in both the United States and China. Through Blackboard's early stage, spin-off, IPO, and public company phases, he led various operational groups and initiatives including business development, strategic development, and integration. Mr. Engkvist also led the operations of Blackboard's largest acquisition to date, as well as its joint venture in China, where he lived from 2003 until 2006.
Mr. Engkvist also spent nearly a decade at The Princeton Review.
He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in history from Dartmouth College.

Senior Vice President, Business Development, Asia Pacific
Karl joined Pearson in January 2012, having spent about 20 years in education services and education technology positions in the US and Asia.
Early in his career, Karl worked at The Princeton Review managing a series of operations that delivered test preparation services to students preparing for high-stakes tests in the U.S. such as the SAT, GMAT, and GRE. He was responsible for a turnaround of a troubled franchisee office that tripled its sales in an 18 month period, and also for top line growth rates in excess of 20% at some of the largest territories in the company.
In 1999 Karl joined a startup called Blackboard that saw an opportunity to harness the internet to enable anytime, anywhere learning. During his tenure the company grew from a single e-learning platform company to a multi-product, global entity with several hundred million dollars of turnover per year. Pearson's investment in Blackboard in 2000 led to his involvement in the early stages of CourseCompass.
During his eleven year tenure at Blackboard, Karl had such roles as VP of Business Development, Vice President of Integration, Senior Vice President of International, and Chief Operating Officer of Cerbibo, a joint venture between Blackboard and CERNET, a spinoff of China's Ministry of Education.
