Managing Director, Legal & Professional Education
Andy Gates has a gift for helping clients see the possibilities, and the expertise to bring them to reality.
For more than 20 years, he has partnered with higher learning institutions to develop and execute online programming that drives innovation, growth and positive results.
Andy honed his skills in the early days of online learning as he worked with university faculty to lower the costs associated with print materials. His skills grew as the industry exploded and he soon established a reputation for expertise in digital learning tools and breakthrough learning services. He has worked in “incubator” type partnerships with some of the nation’s preeminent learning institutions, and helped them launch many of the country’s most successful institutional online programs.
Andy has served in senior strategic roles with Pearson Learning Solutions, Cengage, and Academic Partnerships, roles that have given him a strategic and pragmatic view that resonates with academic leaders considering alternate learning modalities and business models. Andy views education through the lens of a core belief that quality education should not be limited by capacity, constrained by location, or delayed by cost.
An avid recreational traveler, Andy and his wife enjoy cashing frequent traveler points to destinations in Europe – where they share their passion for history and art, with the occasional surreptitious visits to football matches.
