Creative Mobile Startup Builds Academic Success
Knobull, Inc. is pleased to recognize that Lynn Bentley will begin his 14th year of service as a Board Director, and will continue his 8 year tenure as President this fall.
"Lynn brings more than 30 years of business and corporate employee coaching experience to the position," noted Tim Kardok, Knobull's Chairman and former CEO. "He has managed a broad array of employee and student life-related programs and facilities, so he'll continue to have immediate and positive impact on our many student-focused services." Bentley previously served as Director of Business Development for OI Global Partners, Director of HR for Schneider Electric Industrial Services, and HR Manager for Pfizer.
Bentley said he was grateful for his 14 years of service and looked forward to helping the Knobull team continue providing academic success guidance through use of the company's web app. The site has been designed to provide Learning Center tools that include student collaboration message boards, academic resources, guidance blogs, and student news pages, supported by a finely tuned Research Engine that delivers the information sought in a more efficient way.
"The team's student-centered approach to academic support has been greatly appreciated by many students," Bentley said. "I appreciate and value the intentionality behind the design of our support system. The direct collaboration opportunities between the Knobull team and students demonstrates that the commitment to coaching and learning encourages student success in the classroom, future career and greater community."
Bentley earned his BS in Sociology/Psychology at the University of Minnesota-Duluth, an MA in HR/Industrial Psychology from the University of Minnesota-Minneapolis, and an Executive MBA from Northeastern University in Boston.
"As a second generation college student, I benefitted greatly from the many faculty mentors and corporate executive advisors that took the time and interest in support of my learning," Bentley said. "I find it deeply personal to be able to assist students and guide our team to work directly with them to provide the best learning experience and career growth possible."
