Innovera Group today announced the appointment of Robert Speed as its Group CEO. In this new role, Speed will spearhead the group’s strategic expansion across the region and beyond, in line with the exponential growth seen across the EdTech sector.
Speed wields a 15-year track record in operational and strategic leadership, engineering go-to market expansion, and fostering tactical partnerships that deliver significant value. He has served in various senior management roles — most recently as the Vice President for the MEA region at EdTech company Blackboard. Prior to this, he served as the head of the ME region for Promethean, a leading K-12 EdTech company. Both positions focused heavily on steering growth, delivering productivity and profitability in emerging markets, creating and leading integrated teams, and deepening channel partnerships.
“As the EdTech sector cycles through restructuring, consolidation and digital technology transformation, it will continue to experience heavy growth. Innovera Group is at an exciting juncture in its trajectory — it is uniquely poised to pivot and further capitalize on this rapidly changing environment by offering the support and the services its customer base needs. I am delighted to come on board and lead this dedicated, seasoned team,” commented Speed.
