Keypath Education, a full-service enrollment partner that specializes in online program management (OPM) for higher education institutions worldwide, has announced two key executive promotions. Nirmeen Hasan has been promoted to group president for OPM Global and Ryan O’Hare to CEO Australia. 

“I often say that the key to our success is our people,” said Keypath Education CEO Steve Fireng. “We have great employees who put forth maximum effort to achieve extraordinary results. Ryan and Nirmeen are perfect examples of this as they drive our exponential growth in online program management.” 

Keypath Education works with institutions worldwide to launch and grow degree programs through OPM, which is a strategic relationship between universities and external partners entailing market research, capital investment, marketing, student recruitment, retention and career preparation. Hasan oversees these operations. She has more than 15 years of experience in higher education, online program development, enrollment management and strategy development for long-term partnerships. She’s worked with many top-tier universities to launch more than 150 online degree programs. Before joining Keypath Education in 2014, Hasan led student recruitment and the launch and management of academic partnerships at Pearson Embanet.

"I am excited about the growth at Keypath and the innovative strategies being developed by our cross-functional teams,” Hasan said. “Keypath has created a global footprint in delivering OPM services over the last two years, and we are working hard to develop new partnerships and services to support the growth of our new and existing partners." 

To support OPM efforts in Keypath’s Melbourne office, Ryan O’Hare has been promoted to CEO Australia. Since early 2014, O’Hare has been building the Keypath Australia team from the ground up. In partnership with several leading Australian universities, Keypath Australia offers its unique online learning services and strategic investment capabilities. Leveraging his more than 10 years of experience in global online higher education, O’Hare identifies emerging opportunities to change the way tertiary education is delivered in Australia.

“Keypath Australia has grown even faster than we anticipated, due entirely to the great people we have working for us and the successful partnerships we’ve entered into,” O’Hare said. “I’m delighted to be promoted to this role and am extremely excited for the short- and long-term future of Keypath in the region.”
