Josh Baron

Development Officer

Josh Baron joined Apereo as the Foundation's Development Officer in 2023. Josh spearheads the fundraising initiatives and sustainability strategy for the Foundation and the communities and projects it serves.

Many with longer histories with Apereo may already know Josh from his former Board Member and Board Chair service during the early years after Sakai and Jasig merged to create Apereo. Josh also served on the Sakai Board as Chair and spent many years leading ed-tech efforts at Marist College, where the staff, colleagues, and students won several awards for their Sakai based Fashion MOOC.

Since leaving Marist, Josh has spent the last few years working at Lumen Learning and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. 

In 2023, Josh created Baron’s EdTech Consulting, which is how Apereo Foundation has come to benefit from his expertise as our Development Officer.
