Christine Özden joins Cambridge International today as our new Chief Executive. She takes over from Michael O’Sullivan who left in December 2018 after nearly six years in the role.
Christine began her career in international education at Cambridge University Press and has a wealth of senior leadership experience in the design, development and delivery of educational products and services, with a particular focus on publishing and assessment. In her most recent role before joining Cambridge international, she was responsible for launching upper secondary level qualifications in the Middle East and Asia.
Christine believes strongly in the need to support the growing number of families and communities that are interested in, and benefit from, international education. “It is an honour to be chosen to work with the Cambridge team, whose commitment to educators, students and their communities I share,” she says.
Christine has worked in different educational contexts in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa, and has lived in Vietnam, the United Arab Emirates, Turkey and the UK. She has an MA in Classical Arabic and Turkish from the University of Edinburgh and a Master’s in Business Administration from Warwick University.
