At the time of this writing and about 20 months before the opening day of our Shenzhen and Washington campuses in fall 2019, the Whittle team consists of 60 full-time professionals as well as 100’s of supporting “extended family members” in institutions deeply involved with us. Our full-time team is divided equally across an HQ group of about 30 in New York and “launch teams” of roughly 15 team members each already on the ground in Shenzhen and Washington.
As our campus leaders, faculty, and staff on each campus arrive and as we fill out our global team, our full time team will grow to over 400 staff members in the two years ahead with roughly 175 team members on each campus on opening day and an HQ group of over 60 at about that time.
The depth and talent of our team drives the quality of our education so we hope you’ll carefully study in the following pages. We believe this group—and those who will be joining them every week in the years ahead—represent the key reason parents will entrust their children with us.
Our global leadership team and staff has been recruited over the past three years from three primary sectors: education (both from leading independent schools and top tier universities); the school reform movement (individuals who have played leading role as change agents in schooling worldwide); and global enterprise (individuals who have held leadership roles in organizations which have global reach and operations.)
