Winners are selected by previous ORBIE winners in the Boston tech community.
“We are thrilled that George has received such a prestigious award for his leadership and commitment to technology as a path to affordable access to quality learning,” said Michael Hansen, CEO, Cengage. “His passion for students and technology expertise has been critical to our company’s transformation from traditional publisher to digital education company.
