Mr. Tullman was selected as President of Kendall College in September, 2002 with a mandate from the Board of Trustees to save the College, sell it or shut it down. He immediately set about reducing the College’s operating losses and developing a strategy to change the College into a competitive and significant participant in today’s educational marketplace. Nine months after his arrival, Mr. Tullman sold the College’s Evanston campus, bought a facility and six acres in the heart of Chicago, raised $60 million, and moved the entire school into a brand-new state-of-the-art facility which can accommodate thousands of students in the College’s major areas of expertise. In connection with this complex financial and real estate transaction, Mr. Tullman also entered into a long-term strategic partnership with Laureate Education, Inc., one of the world’s largest for-pay public education corporations and a leader in online and distance learning.
