Carnegie Welcomes Industry Leaders Paul LeBlanc and Jake Neuberg to Board of Directors

Paul LeBlanc, Southern New Hampshire University President, and Jake Neuberg, Chairman of Discovery Education bring a wealth of experience in education and EdTech to Carnegie’s Board of Directors.

Carnegie is proud to announce the addition of two distinguished members of its Board of Directors: Paul LeBlanc and Jake Neuberg. These appointments reflect Carnegie’s commitment to transforming the higher education landscape and helping colleges connect with students.

“We are thrilled to welcome Paul and Jake to our Board of Directors,” said Gary Colen, CEO of Carnegie. “Their combined experience and deep understanding of the education industry will be instrumental as we continue to innovate and support colleges and universities in their efforts to recruit, enroll, and retain their students. Their leadership will help shape our future and drive our mission forward.”

Paul LeBlanc brings a wealth of experience from his two-decade tenure as President of Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU). Under his visionary leadership, SNHU evolved from a small regional institution into the largest higher education provider in the United States, renowned for its excellence in online education. LeBlanc, who retires from his post at SNHU this June, is now collaborating with Human Systems to redefine higher education through AI innovations. His extensive background in educational leadership and technology will be invaluable to Carnegie’s mission.

Jake Neuberg joins Carnegie with an extensive EdTech background and is currently serving as Chairman of Discovery Education, a dynamic educator resource platform. Neuberg was also the co-founder of Revolution Prep, the US leader in online tutoring services, and has held roles as an entrepreneur, investor, and advisor for a number of education industry companies. His strategic insight and business acumen have earned him a reputation as a sharp and innovative leader in the education sector.

Paul LeBlanc expressed his enthusiasm, stating, “I am excited to join Carnegie’s Board and contribute to their innovative vision in higher education. Carnegie’s dedication to connecting students with educational opportunities aligns perfectly with my passion for education access and leveraging technology to enhance learning.”

Jake Neuberg added, “Joining Carnegie’s Board is a fantastic opportunity to work with a dynamic team committed to making a significant impact in higher education. I look forward to bringing my experience to the table and helping Carnegie navigate its next chapter.”

In early 2024, Carnegie received a strategic investment from Shamrock Capital. Together, Carnegie and Shamrock intend to drive innovation and excellence in the industry, and with the addition of Paul LeBlanc and Jake Neuberg, Carnegie is poised to deliver on that goal.
