Boston — EvoText – a software development company specializing in education technology solutions and the developers of Ogment for curriculum creation and management – announced Michael F. Johnson has joined the company as president, further filling out its executive team of ed tech industry experts. Johanna Wetmore will continue to serve as CEO and Chris Robert will retain his role as COO.
A pioneer in the education technology industry for over 30 years, Mr. Johnson brings a wealth of expertise in working with businesses of all sizes and markets to quickly build and execute focused strategies.
“We are thrilled to have Michael as part of the EvoText team. He brings a depth and breadth of ed tech experience that will take us to the next level and help us meet the challenges of the ever-changing landscape,” said Johanna Wetmore, CEO of EvoText.
