Brian Alexander brings extensive experience in modernizing and personalizing digital higher education experiences
DENVER, July 1, 2021 – Today Campus.app, a cloud-based, device-agnostic student portal platform, announced the addition of Brian Alexander to lead its Product team. Alexander will serve as the Chief Product Officer, helping refine Campus.app’s offerings and guide the roadmap of future development.
Alexander brings a wealth of higher education solution experience to the role, with a particular emphasis on using data to create personalized experiences for all end users.
“I am excited to join a team of people who share my passion for using data and technology to make higher education a personalized experience for students rather than a one-size-fits-all model that is a point of frustration for so many,” said Alexander. “With the tools and talent at Campus, I look forward to continuing the Campus mission of helping users deal with information overload by bringing forward information they need at that moment while backgrounding less important potential distractions.”
Campus.app provides everyone involved in the university experience — students, prospective students, alumni, faculty, staff and administrators — with a personalized path to success by surfacing the most important information for them in an easy-to-access portal. Alexander’s experience guiding successful data-driven solutions to market in higher education will give Campus.app an edge to continue leading the modernization of the student portal space.
“Brian has a rare mix of technical, product, higher ed tech and data experience, which perfectly fit the skillset we were looking for to take our product offerings to the next level,” said Chase Williams, CEO of Campus. “We’re proud to have him on the team and look forward to the positive impact he’ll have on all Campus customers.”
