The Board of Directors of Governet, a web-based company that creates and implements curriculum and program management software for colleges and universities around the world, recently promoted Mark Svorinic to President, according to Jess Parker, spokesman for the Governet Board of Directors.
Previously Governet’s vice president of consulting services since May 2013, Mr. Svorinic has increased sales and opportunities for the company, including improving software implementation times.
“Mark’s promotion confirms his leadership skills with Governet,” Mr. Parker said. “Governet has seen its fastest growth in 2014, and we are confident the company will continue to grow and flourish under Mark’s guidance.”
Governet’s software — CurricUNET META — automates the development and approval process of new courses and programs as well as their management and maintenance in higher education, a process that previously required a significant commitment of resources — time, funds and people. Automating this process with META creates greater efficiencies and effectiveness of resources, dramatically saving universities upwards of 2,300 hours per year.
Mr. Svorinic has more than 25 years of experience in educational technology. He started as a secondary school teacher specializing in Business and Technology Education, where he recognized that emergent technologies would inevitably impact the learning arena. He moved from District Technology Coordinator for a school district in Arizona to Director for Academic Technology Services in the Tempe Union School District. Since then, Mr. Svorinic has held senior and executive positions at Cisco Learning Institute, Pearson Digital Learning and Pinnacle Education, Inc.
Mr. Svorinic earned his Bachelor of Science degree in business education from the University of Arizona and his master’s degree in learning and instructional technology from Arizona State University.
