“On behalf of BUILD, we are excited that Tony is now part of the Boston Board,” said Roy Hirshland, CEO of T3 Advisors and Chair of the BUILD Boston Board. “He has spent his life focused on educational software, so he brings a wealth of expertise that will be essential to BUILD’s continued growth. We are thrilled to be working with Tony on expanding the mission and work of BUILD in Boston and beyond.”
