“With the reskilling revolution and COVID-19 pandemic, Sessions College is experiencing unprecedented growth due to the quality, affordability, and accessibility of our online education,” said Doris Granatowski, CEO. “We’ve expanded the bench strength of our board of directors to reflect our increased focus on new education programs for the digital workforce, the corporate reskilling market, and attacking international markets. We have a unique educational platform, DigitalComplete™, powering our expanded efforts as well as our team.”
Edwards has a 25-year track record in the US, EU, China, and Africa, serving, CEO and COO roles as well as board director and management consulting roles in the finance, government, media, tech/IT, telecom, and investment banking sectors. Edwards is currently the managing director of Actum360, which provides growth, turn around, and crisis management advisory services to companies and PE firms. He recently turned around and exited Trensant, an artificial intelligence company focused on supply chain analytics, to the Kleiner - Vinrock backed company Interos. Based on his successful record, he has led special initiatives with organizations such as Google, Microsoft, T-Mobile, Samsung, Visa, & Vodafone.

“Sessions will be a major disruptor and trendsetter in the skills-based education market over the next year with its DigitalComplete™ platform,” said Neil Edwards. “I joined the Sessions board of directors because it is one of the few education companies that have the ability to execute on launching new digital focused programs, expand into the corporate reskilling market, and go international. Sessions’ DigitalComplete™ platform is the secret sauce that gives it the edge to move out aggressively where other companies may not. I look forward to helping to drive its strategy and execution plans in this exciting period of their growth.”
