Career Education Corporation (NASDAQ: CECO) today announced a realignment of its admissions support and marketing functions to position admissions teams closer to the businesses they support and to accelerate and add consistency to the company’s brand development activities.
The changes include a shift of admissions support from CEC’s corporate marketing group to its Strategic Business Units (SBUs), including its University SBU,
and consolidating brand-related marketing activities with other corporate shared services. The company believes this realignment will provide increased focus and clearer accountability for important drivers of continued student population growth. As part of this realignment, Len Mariani, who served as Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing & Admissions Officer, has left CEC to pursue other opportunities.
