Choosing A New LMS?

Mark caught the entrepreneurial “bug” and the desire to take on high-risk challenges early in his professional career from the most unlikely of places, working for the world’s preeminent engineering and construction corporation—Bechtel. Joining Bechtel’s in-house investment bank had as much to do with developing new project opportunities globally as it did with structured finance. “My colleagues and I were given carte blanche to make things happen—that was the culture.”

It was this ability to achieve in high-risk work settings that attracted Instructure to Mark, who became its 10th employee in June 2010. With very little funding and virtually no brand awareness outside of the state of Utah, Instructure faced immense challenges as a newly-formed company.  Tasked with bringing Canvas to the northeastern and mid-Atlantic states, Mark exhibited great energy for his potential clients and passion for the product.  Instructure now counts among its many valued clients some of the premier higher education institutions in the U.S. “The advancements and innovation that Canvas brings to teaching and learning makes it easy for me to get up in the morning–I can’t wait to introduce Canvas to someone new.”

Mark earned his B.S. in Design Engineering and an M.B.A in Finance from Brigham Young University.
