Open Education Global Board of Directors Announces Upcoming Transition for Executive Director, Paul Stacey

Paul Stacey, Executive Director of OE Global since 2017.

In his fifth year of leadership and tireless commitment, Paul Stacey, Executive Director of Open Education Global (OEG), has announced his intention to transition to a new phase of his career in the global open education movement. 

During his time as Executive Director, Paul led OEG into an incredibly successful period. Paul was the driving force behind a number of milestone initiatives, providing the connective tissue for a maturing open education movement worldwide.

Some of his many accomplishments include:

Among these many accomplishments, Paul is a consistently caring and thoughtful leader, cultivating strong relationships with the Board, partners, and members of OEGlobal. He supports his team with enthusiasm, maintaining a careful awareness of the distinct needs of a global, open workforce and advocating for a caring and inclusive organizational culture at every opportunity. 

Paul’s stewardship and vision will be greatly missed by the staff, Board, partners, and members of Open Education Global. We wish him all the best in his transition and know that while he may be shifting away from the Executive Director position, he will remain a close colleague, advisor, and friend of OEGlobal for many years to come.
