HMH Appoints Technology and Educator Leaders to Board of Directors

Learning technology company HMH today announced that Jean S. Desravines, CEO of national education nonprofit New Leaders, and Barak Eilam, CEO of global technology company NICE, have been appointed to HMH’s board of directors.

Desravines serves as CEO of New Leaders, a national nonprofit organization that develops leaders for high-need schools and impacts more than 2 million K-12 students annually. Prior to joining New Leaders, he served in senior positions in the New York City Department of Education, including as senior counselor to Joel Klein, the chancellor of New York City’s public school system under Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and was named to Forbes’ “Impact 30” list as one of the world’s leading social entrepreneurs.

Eilam started his career as an engineer at NICE in 1999 and in his 24 years with the company held multiple senior leadership roles in R&D, product management and sales. Eilam established and led the company’s Analytics business, spearheading NICE’s transformation into an enterprise software company. Prior to becoming the CEO, Eilam served as the President of NICE Americas, significantly expanding NICE’s customer base, providing solutions to 85 of the Fortune 100 organizations.

“We are pleased to welcome Jean and Barak to HMH’s board of directors,” said Jack Lynch, CEO of HMH. “Their extensive expertise in the fields of technology, education and innovation will be invaluable to HMH’s continued growth as a learning technology company.”
