For Erez Pikar, CEO of Trox, these weeks of back-to-school chaos may ultimately prove to be the solution to truly integrating technology into schools, and at home, in a meaningful and productive way. In this episode, Erez finds silver linings to digital equity, professional development, and more.
For more than 30 years, the Trox team has partnered with educators across North America in the planning, purchasing, deployment and use of technology in pursuit of better access and improved learning outcomes for students of all ages. With a sole focus on the education market, Trox has fostered trusted relationships with over one-third of school districts in the U.S and Canada and provides technology products and services that are in use by over 20 million students every day.
Erez Pikar has been building technology businesses for the last 25 years, with a dedicated focus on supporting education for the last 14. In mid-2019, Pikar led the merger of Troxell Communications and CDI Technologies to create North America’s largest education technology provider, Trox.
Today, as Chief Executive Officer, Erez leads a team of individuals whose sole focus is helping educators plan, buy and effectively leverage technology in classrooms. He is a passionate advocate of education believing it is the most important of all human endeavors. This drives and shapes the company’s mission – to serve educators in the pursuit of better access and improved learning outcomes for students of all ages.
Since uniting in July of 2019, CDI Technologies and Troxell Solutions have flourished as Troxell-CDI. The two visionary EdTech leaders successfully combined to form a dynamic thought leader, devoted to helping educators improve learning outcomes, and are positioned to lead the industry with substantial growth in 2020 and beyond.
