Pearson is the world’s leading learning company combining 150 years of experience in publishing with the latest learning technology, assessment and online support in education.

Tamara Minick-Scokalo is appointed President, Pearson Europe, Middle East, Africa and the Caribbean. EMEA is a hugely important and highly diverse region in which Pearson sees significant opportunities to extend its impact in education.

Minick-Scokalo joins Pearson from Trax, a privately funded technology business, where she is the CEO. Minick-Scokalo’s career spans organisations such as Procter & Gamble, Cadbury and Kraft in both marketing and operational roles. Following the acquisition of Cadbury by Kraft in 2010 she became the President of the combined $4.5 billion chocolate business across Europe.

John Fallon, chief executive of Pearson's International business, said: “We are playing a much bigger role in education across the EMEA regions and engaging much more directly with a wider range of customers. With her extensive international marketing and operational experience, Tamara will bring a new set of skills to our organisation – and play a key role in building a bigger business playing a much broader role in delivering educational services across the region.”

Bhavneet Singh will be joining Pearson as President, Global English from Viacom International Media Networks where he was Managing Director and Executive Vice President, Emerging Markets.

English is a fast-growing area for Pearson, which has a strong heritage in English Language Teaching through the Longman imprint and Pearson’s MyEnglishLab online products, in the direct delivery of English language teaching and assessment through Wall Street English – Pearson’s English language schools already present in 27 countries – and the Pearson Test of English. Singh’s experience in media and entertainment will provide a heightened focus for Pearson on new business ventures for “informal learning”.

At Viacom Singh was responsible for developing and establishing a portfolio of entertainment brands, which include MTV, Nickelodeon, VIVA, Comedy Central and VH1, and he has been serving on the board of Viacom18 in India. Prior to Viacom, Singh held senior positions at Discovery Communications and IMG, the global sports and media marketing company. In 2009 Singh was selected by the World Economic Forum to join Young Global Leaders, a group recognized for shaping issues of public interest around the world.

John Fallon, chief executive of Pearson's International business, said: “In our efforts to ‘teach the world English’ we’ve already built a strong team and are making good progress. Bhavneet’s unique blend of experience, in digital transformation and emerging markets, complements those efforts perfectly and will help us to move even more quickly in this important growth area.”
