As the head of McGraw-Hill Education’s Consumer group, Matthew Mugo Fields is a leader in education committed to transforming learning through technology and innovation. Under Matthew’s leadership, McGraw-Hill Education now provides advanced learning solutions directly to families across the globe.
While growing up in the Philadelphia area with limited resources, Matthew benefited from the support of an inspiring group of educators and mentors who helped him succeed academically. Matthew is an honors graduate of Morehouse College and is one of the first people to simultaneously earn master’s degrees in business and education from Harvard University.
Motivated by a desire to do for others what was done for him, Matthew has been a serial education entrepreneur and most recently was the founder and CEO of the Silicon Valley-based enterprise Redbird Advanced Learning. Built upon a ground breaking research partnership with Stanford University, Redbird created adaptive digital curricula and staff training software for schools, while its GiftedandTalented.com platform provided personalized courseware and virtual tutoring services to families in over 75 countries. Redbird Advanced Learning was acquired by McGraw-Hill Education in 2016.
