Bethesda, Maryland-based Knowledge to Practice (K2P) named David Nash as chairman of its advisory board.

The six-year-old edtech company uses adult learning techniques to deliver personalized core curriculum through its competency-based SaaS platform. K2P recently launched a subscription-based educational platform for medical professionals looking to learn the most up-to-date information about COVID-19. Nash helped with development of the company’s CurrentMD COVID platform.

Nash is the founding dean emeritus at Jefferson College of Population Health and a principal faculty member for quality of care programming for the American Association for Physician Leadership. He is already working with K2P to help build the company’s complex diseases curriculum which is set to launch in 2021.

Nash also serves as Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau’s chief health advisor, where he offers guidance to meeting and event planners in accordance with the org’s PHL Health Pledge initiative, meant to “increase awareness of the destination’s efforts to safely welcome back visitors as Philadelphia gradually reopens for business.”

Tysons, Virginia-based B2B IT corporation DXC Technology announced a group of major leadership shifts following the 2019 hire of President and CEO Mike Salvino, and amid business restructuring and cost cutting:

  • DXC Americas Public Sector will be led by Jim Brady and David Swift. Brady joined DXC in June after previously holding leadership roles at Accumen, Accenture and Honeywell. Swift joined the company last November after serving as Accolade’s chief service officer.

Wenker has been named chief marketing and communications officer and will focus on rebranding externally and internally.
