After an extensive search, TechBridge has selected Nicole Armstrong as its new CEO. TechBridge is a longstanding Atlanta-based nonprofit, dedicated to breaking the cycle of generational poverty through the innovative use of technology.
On hand to welcome Nicole and celebrate with the TechBridge staff were TechBridge Co-Founder Steve Linowes of O8 Partners, Board Chair Vish Narendra of Graphic Packaging International. Vice Board Chair John Hutchins, Partner, BakerHostetle, and Board members Julie Untener, VP, IT Governance, NCR Corporation, and Clint Bailey of HUNTER Technical.
“This is an exciting time for TechBridge,” said Vish Narendra, chair of the nonprofit’s board. “We will celebrate 20 years of service this year. More than 50,000 nonprofits use our technology. We’ve improved outcomes and transformed over 100 nonprofits, and we’ve impacted more than 50 million people through the nonprofits we serve.”
Armstrong most recently served as senior vice president of customer success at Renaissance Learning, one of the nation’s largest education technology companies. Prior to Renaissance, she was CEO and co-founder of Noodle Markets, K-12’s first digital procurement platform and national marketplace. Armstrong also served as president of CORE Education and Consulting Solutions, Inc., a leading global education company providing assessments, interventions and content solutions for school districts and states. Before CORE, she was the senior vice president of client services for Schoolnet, Inc. and Pearson Education.
“I am humbled and deeply honored to have been selected for this role,” Armstrong said in a statement. “I feel a personal connection to the TechBridge mission. My love affair with technology, which started at the age of 11, changed the trajectory of my life. The work that TechBridge is doing, to impact individuals, communities and nonprofits, not only matters, but also is a social imperative. I look forward to locking arms with the board, our team, our partners and our nonprofit clients, so that we can continue to make a profound difference in the lives of those that need it most.”
