New Meridian is proud to announce that Tauseef Khan, former chief technology officer for the City of Austin, has joined our team as chief information officer.

Khan is a veteran technologist with two decades of experience in leadership roles at some of American’s best-known technology companies, including 3M, Rackspace Technology, Borland Software and Blackberry.

“Technology and data have always been central to our mission to enhance educational equity by creating the very best assessment systems,” said Arthur VanderVeen, CEO of New Meridian. “Tauseef’s knowledge and experience are essential to providing the cutting-edge technology that enable those systems.”

Khan, who holds an MBA from Southern New Hampshire University, started work at New Meridian earlier this year and has already played a transformative role.

I enjoy modernizing IT. Technology plays a very central role in New Meridian’s growth. COVID-19 has caused educational disruption everywhere and, now more than ever, everything in education hinges on technology. We want to make learning more engaging, personalized, accessible and equitable.
