Thiruvananthapuram: Education sector will see deeper and technology-intensive capability building in the new year, said Gauri Chandra, CEO, RM Education Solutions India, Pvt Ltd. (RM ESI). The statement comes in the wake of Chandra taking over as CEO of RM ESI following the stepdown of previous CEO Connell Viegas. “While the impact of Covid-19 on the education sector was quite profound, it may have given us possibilities we never could have imagined otherwise. We now have the opportunity to build on these learnings. We hope to deliver even more strongly on RM’s vision of improving educational outcomes across the world’” she said.
“It's not very often that we get an opportunity to drive meaningful change and we are very fortunate to be in this position. It’s a super exciting time to be in this business,” Chandra said in a press note. A seasoned professional who has held global leadership roles in banking and financial services, she reiterated that “we will continue to build on what RM India has accomplished in its two-decade-long journey, finetune our strategic direction, grow and develop our organisation, strengthen our partnerships, and build new relationships.” RM ESI will also see an increased focus on diversity, equity, inclusion (DEI ) and sustainability this year, she said.
RM ESI is a subsidiary of the UK-based RM Plc, a leading global supplier of technology and resources to the education sector – including examination boards, central governments, and other professional institutions. The company announced a 4% revenue growth in its FY22 interim financial results and stated that it is poised for growth in FY23, capitalising on the long-term trends around the use of technology in education and assessment.
