Sajan George
Education turnaround specialist, Sajan George, founded Matchbook Learning in 2011. Sajan was formerly the head of Alvarez & Marsal's education turnaround practice, the preeminent firm in corporate turnarounds and crisis management engagements. After leading several large-scale school district-wide turnaround efforts in cities such as St Louis, New Orleans, New York City, Washington, DC and Detroit, Sajan left that work to take on a bigger challenge. By 2014, there will be approximately 20,000 chronically failing schools in US K-12 public education with no sustainable and scalable means by which to turn these underperforming schools around. Sajan sought to create the country's first blended model of school that targets bottom 5% schools in order to create powerful proof points at the bottom of the education ladder so as to catalyze a sustainable and scalable means of turning around public education in the US.

Founder and CEO, Matchbook Learning
Prior to founding Matchbook Learning, CEO Sajan George was a Managing Director with Alvarez & Marsal where he led the Firm's Education Practice. In that role, he led a diverse group of talented turnaround professionals across the U.S., assisting underperforming education institutions at the Local, State and Federal levels. Driven by a passion to realize the dream that all students regardless of background can learn and succeed in our society, he has done this by working alongside several of our nation's Governors, State Superintendents, Mayors, Chancellors, and School Superintendents and two of the largest education philanthropic investors in the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Eli & Edythe Broad Foundation, who are dissatisfied by the status quo in public education in our country, to fundamentally change and restructure some of the largest urban K-12 and higher education institutions in the country.
