Who is David Levin?

David Levin is a British businessman, currently the president and CEO of McGraw-Hill Education. Since taking on this role in April 2014, he has continued to drive the company's ongoing transition from a traditional educational publisher to a full-spectrum digital education company, and he has been a vocal proponent of the use of digital and adaptive technology in education. Prior to joining McGraw-Hill Education, Levin served as CEO of UBM plc.

As a child, Levin lived in Salisbury, Rhodesia. His father was a political journalist, and in 1965, when Levin was two, the family were given a day to leave the country. In consequence he has expressed his gratitude to the opportunities given him to him in his adopted country, and about the advantages of immigration. He attended St Paul's School in London. Levin has a degree in Politics, Philosophy and Economics from Oxford University, and an MBA from Stanford University.

Levin succeeded Clive Hollick as the CEO of UBM plc on 5 April 2005. At UBM Levin set out to focus on building the business in emerging markets and live events, such as exhibitions, by buying smaller companies and selling print titles.
