The “Who” Behind Them

Inspired by their early career experiences in dot-com start-ups, friends Brian Hartnack, Eric Hammond, and Stephen Caldwell wanted to disrupt the higher education industry. In 2006, the group developed a proprietary search engine to match students with education opportunities and the beginnings of Archer Education were born.

Why We Love Them

If you work in student recruitment, you’re in the market for eyeball time.  

You’re not just competing with other institutions, you’re competing with every brand that’s in the market for views, clicks, and scrolls from your target audience. Getting attention is hard enough, so once you have it, you’ve got to do everything you can to harness it.

And that’s what our friends at Archer Education help schools do so dang well. Archer is pioneering a new era in personalized student recruitment, through its story-driven and technology-enabled approach that’s designed to support the entire enrollment process. And we're here for it.
