  1. PowerSchool CEO, Hardeep Gulati, is an innovative leader and executive with more than two decades of experience leading software businesses. Hardeep’s passion for education and proven expertise in guiding companies through periods of growth has been instrumental to the ongoing success of PowerSchool. Under Hardeep’s leadership, PowerSchool has introduced award-winning, integrated classroom solutions and made a lasting impact on the future of K-12 education. For Hardeep, leading a company that includes thousands of educators and technology specialists is a natural evolution of his lifelong commitment to harnessing the power of technology to transform lives and unlock student potential. Hardeep led PowerSchool through the overnight shift to distance learning in spring of 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, acting swiftly to shift the company’s focus to help ensure the learning could continue, whether in the classroom, at home, or both. Hardeep led PowerSchool to quickly launch a new prepare page on the company website with resources to help K-12 institutions continue operations remotely, refocused business activities to develop a free Distance Learning Readiness Kit, and reduced implementation of Schoology Learning, PowerSchool’s online learning management system, from 90 days to just 4 days to enable hundreds of schools to move to distance learning over their spring break. During this time, Hardeep also led the transition of PowerSchool employees to work fully remote. While also experiencing distance learning in his own home, Hardeep led PowerSchool with one goal – to keep the learning going – and is committed to doing all he can to help move education forward. Most recently, Hardeep successfully led PowerSchool’s acquisition of Naviance and Intersect—the 11th acquisition during his tenure as CEO. Additionally, he oversaw the expansion of talent from 500 to more than 2,500+ employees, making PowerSchool the largest education technology provider serving more than 45 million students in more than 90 countries.  Prior to joining PowerSchool in 2015, Hardeep led strategy and product development for Oracle. Following his work there, Hardeep was selected to lead SumTotal Systems as CEO. Under his leadership, the company became the #1 market leader in enterprise learning systems and saw record-breaking growth in cloud computing services.  Hardeep is driven by his passion for education and the technology that powers it. His background is not just in software, but in learning. Hardeep has a strong belief in the opportunity to make a real impact in education and solve the challenges that educators, schools, and districts are facing today to improve student outcomes. Hardeep believes every student deserves the best opportunities in life, whether they’re in a physical building or learning remotely. That is why he has led PowerSchool to provide solutions that support educators, administrators, and every person who supports a child’s ability to learn.
