According to Mr. Borman, these new members of SunGard K-12’s Leadership Team will help the thriving organization advance to the next level as it leverages modern technology and its more than four decades of experience in supporting student achievement. “Education is rapidly evolving.

We must stand alongside our educators and deliver elegant, insightful solutions built on modern technology and proven approaches,” says Mr. Borman. “This must be supported by a dynamic, best-of-breed sales and marketing organization that understands our customers’ needs and supports student achievement in schools.”
