Damien Challenger - Co-Founder
Damien’s experience in helping over 1,000 schools discover the best technology coupled with helping over 1,500 suppliers find the most pertinent routes to market, he has been ideally placed to witness the education landscape from a middle ground. This middle ground has enabled Damien to build relationships built on trust and common objectives.
Passionate about the education sector, Damien’s dream is for Nexus Education to be the go to portal for anyone in the sector wanting to research the very best products and services, read the latest news and offer a voice and opinion to teachers using these products on a daily basis.
Mike Reardon - Co-Founder
Bringing over 10 years experience working in his local primary school, having developed from being an active volunteer to a member of the governing body, Mike has experienced first hand the challenges schools, children and teachers face. With a wealth of experience in financial and performance management in his school, in addition to engagement on topics such as academisation, Mike is keen to learn more and share what he can with others in an easy and quickly digestible format.
Rhiannon Challenger - Community and Social Media Manager
With a degree in English from Chester University and keen interest in teaching and social media, Rhiannon heads up Nexus Education’s school social media engagement.
Liaising with teachers everyday, Rhiannon is at the fore-front of our efforts to connect teachers to each other enabling them to share their views, increase their profile and, ultimately, make a difference in the education sector.
Having two young children entering school age also gives Rhiannon (and Damien!) an added interest in making lives easier for teachers and therefore bettering our children’s futures.
