Penn Foster

Frank Britt is the CEO of Penn Foster, a leading career-focused online and hybrid education institution that annually supports over 100,000 active students and 1,000 institutions nationwide. His mission is to create a national movement to better connect education, career pathways and job creation, and to promote debt-free and affordable learning.

In addition to his role as CEO of Penn Foster, Frank currently serves as an Operating Advisor at Bain Capital Ventures.
