We are excited to introduce our dream Leadership Team at Tabula Rasa! David and Todd are thrilled to be back together after an earlier and highly successful stint during Tabula Rasa’s formative years. Adding John to the team brings experience and a passion for team-building that will lead Tabula Rasa into its most successful period ever!
Managing Partner, Chief Executive Officer
David founded Tabula Rasa Publishing Services, Inc., in July 2004 after recognizing first-hand as a math editor at Harcourt School Publishers the dearth of high quality development partners for educational publishers. Since then, Tabula Rasa has grown organically behind the guiding principal that nothing less than excellence is acceptable, and David is proud that this growth has been fueled as much by knowing which projects to decline as by those that the company has completed. David continues to ensure excellence through hands-on involvement in Tabula Rasa’s projects and day-to-day operations.
Managing Partner, Chief Technology Officer
Todd spent the earlier part of his educational career as a classroom teacher and academic dean in the Orange County Public School system. In 2003, after a summer working for Harcourt School Publishers, Todd came to realize that he could have a larger impact on students’ learning by transitioning full-time to educational publishing. Since 2003, Todd has held leadership roles at a number of educational publishers and service providers, including Scholastic Education, Curriculum Associates, and Q2A/Bill Smith Group. In 2012, Todd successfully launched his own development house, Tod MacLaren Publishing Solutions, LLC, with a focus on digital learning. Todd is now excited to be heading and expanding our digital learning services here at Tabula Rasa.
