Roselli brings to Renaissance more than 25 years of global experience in business strategy, operations, finance, and acquisitions. During his 14 years at Adtalem, he initially oversaw strategy and business development, leading the process of diversifying the organization through multiple major acquisitions. He was later promoted to leadership of the professional education division. Previously, he served as chief financial officer and vice president of business development at Indeliq, and as vice president, business development for W.W. Grainger’s Internet commerce unit.

“In meeting with individuals from Renaissance’s mission-driven team, it has become quite clear to me that we share the same passion for education and enhancing student outcomes,” says Roselli. “I look forward to joining Renaissance and applying my experience to help the organization continue to deliver on its purpose of accelerating learning for all, worldwide.”
