A new CEO for Kaplan
Florida-based education test company Kaplan announced Thursday that its CEO is resigning in August.
Thomas C. Leppert, who has been at Kaplan since 2013, will resign Aug. 21.
Andrew S. Rosen, chairman of Kaplan and executive vice president of its parent company, Arlington-based Graham Holdings Co., will become CEO.
Donald E. Graham, chairman of Arlington-based Graham Holdings, said Leppert “has been a huge contributor to every aspect of Kaplan’s worldwide business. We are sorry to lose Tom, but understand why he wanted to leave; the pace of change at Kaplan will continue.”
The company declined to elaborate on why Leppert was leaving.
Rosen came to Graham Holding’s predecessor company, The Washington Post Co. in 1986 and joined Kaplan in 1992. He became chairman and CEO of Kaplan in 2008 after holding a variety of executive roles.
He left to become executive vice president of Graham Holdings, but remained chairman.
