Chief Technology Officer
"There is surely nothing quite so useless as doing with great efficiency what should not be done at all." -Peter F. Drucker
JP Beaudry is chief technology officer at 2U, Inc., supporting the global IT and engineering team in creating educational opportunities for tens of millions of people worldwide. JP joined 2U via the edX acquisition, where he also served as CTO.
Prior to edX, JP was a senior engineering leader at Cimpress, where he led the business agility transformation of the billion-dollar Vistaprint line of business, co-managed the enterprise portfolio, and led engineering and technical operations teams. Before Cimpress, JP headed various engineering organizations at Cisco Systems. In a career that dates back to the early commercial internet, this passionate techy and recovering introvert never thought he'd find so much joy studying and optimizing the human side of organizational dynamics.
JP holds an MBA from Babson College, an MSc in telecommunication from Boston University, and a BSc in electrical engineering from Sherbrooke University. In his spare time, he enjoys practicing ice hockey, tinkering around the house, and listening to podcasts.
