Jonathan Schmalzbach

VP-Editorial - Editorial

Jonathan has over 30 years of experience in the field of education publishing. He cofounded Beyond Books in the late 1990s. This was one of the first digital curriculum courseware companies to make content for the 3-12 market.

That company was acquired by Apex Learning where he became the VP of Curriculum and Content. During his tenure there, he oversaw a department of 75 that included SMEs, artists, editors, and instructional designers. They created over 150 standards-based interactive courses for the 6-12 market. This included AP courses, core courses, and ESL/ELL programs.

From there Jonathan has worked as a VP of sales, VP of marketing, and Curriculum Director for a virtual private school.

He is thrilled to be returning to QBS and remarkably talented, international, forward-thinking teammates.
