Tampa-based Strategos Group, a management consulting firm, says it made Kevin Jenkins its director of enterprise growth and investments.
Jenkins has experience in strategy, finance and buying and selling experience, Strategos says, and has led investment committees and M&A transactions. Jenkins has also overseen financing, fundraising, pricing strategies and partnerships for organizations ranging from startups to national enterprises, Strategos Group says.
The news comes just months after Strategos Group hired Addison Davis, former Hillsborough County Public Schools superintendent, as a new partner, in July.
Before joining Strategos, Jenkins worked at DreamBox Learning in corporate development and partnerships.
"Kevin was invaluable to our DreamBox Learning executive team during a critical growth phase, adding market-forward analysis and insights during multiple M&A transactions," says Jessica Kuperberg, former DreamBox general counsel, in the statement. "Kevin's financial acumen not only guided us through complex negotiations but also ensured that our decisions were both fiscally sound and aligned with our long-term objectives. His contributions positioned DreamBox at the forefront of the 'EdTech' market, ensuring positive returns for both students and shareholders."
Founded in 2011, Strategos Group is a national education management consulting firm that it says includes former state education commissioners, legislators, White House appointees, school district superintendents and business leaders. The firm says it advises Fortune 500 companies, nonprofits, startups, philanthropy and private equity.
