David Levin is the president and CEO of McGraw-Hill Education, a leading learning science company, and is responsible for the growth and management of its global business. Since joining McGraw-Hill Education in April 2014, David has led the transformation of the company from a traditional textbook publisher to a learning science company with a vision of unlocking the full potential of each learner through an approach focused on:

  • An open ecosystem to foster a seamless learning experience
  • Robust and proven content to support individual learning goals
  • Adaptive technology for personalized learning and
  • Data and insights to drive decisions.

Under his leadership, McGraw-Hill Education has moved to combine the science of learning with the art of teaching, harnessing technology in order to enhance learning inside and outside of the classroom and deepen connections between students and teachers. David is committed to renewing the company's culture, fostering an open, collaborative and social environment.

During that time, he repositioned the business and shifted its focus to live events and online communities and away from its legacy magazines.
