Forbes Business Council Is an Invitation-Only Community for Successful Business Owners and Leaders
Nick Gaehde, President of Lexia® Learning, a Cambium Learning® Group company, has been accepted into the Forbes Business Council, the foremost growth and networking organization for successful business owners and leaders worldwide.
Gaehde was vetted and selected by a review committee based on the depth and diversity of his vision, strategy, and business model transformation to meet the evolving needs of the K-12 education technology market. Having guided Lexia through several mergers and acquisitions, he has maintained a keen focus on the company’s mission to create opportunity for every student through literacy education across the United States. Criteria for acceptance include a track record of successfully impacting business growth metrics, as well as personal and professional achievements and honors.
“We are honored to welcome Nick into the community,” said Scott Gerber, founder of Forbes Councils, the collective that includes Forbes Business Council. “Our mission with Forbes Councils is to bring together proven leaders from every industry, creating a curated, social capital-driven network that helps every member grow professionally and make an even greater impact on the business world.”
As an accepted member of the Council, Nick has access to a variety of exclusive opportunities designed to help him reach peak professional influence. He will connect and collaborate with other respected local leaders in a private forum and at members-only events. Nick will also be invited to work with a professional editorial team to share his expert insights in original business articles on Forbes.com, and to contribute to published Q&A panels alongside other experts.
“This is a tremendous honor,” said Gaehde “For the past 36 years, we as a company have been solely focused on ensuring that all students have the ability to master their foundational literacy skills. More recently, we have been building tools to help millions of children become confident English speakers, readers and lifelong learners. Our work – which is both a personal passion and a business driver — has never been more important. I am humbled by the Council’s recognition and could not be more grateful for the opportunity to serve on the highly regarded Forbes Business Council.
I look forward to serving with my fellow council members, contributing to these very important conversations, and learning from the expertise of other council members as I work to advance the mission of Lexia Learning.”
