Passport for Good Hires New Team Members to Accommodate Growth



Passport for Good, a student engagement data solution company based in Troy, recently added five new team members to accommodate its expansion into schools across New York state.

Jeff Masline joined the company as senior director of sales and marketing. With nearly 20 years of experience in the education sector, he oversees the sales team as well as marketing and public relations efforts. Masline works closely with senior leadership to identify new school districts where Passport for Good can expand its reach across New York state and beyond. Previously, he served in both senior leadership and consulting roles for several educational technology companies. He also currently serves as president of a Capital Region school district board, a role he has held for nine years.

Jeff Brown and Lisa Rudely both joined the company as senior account executives. Brown, a former school teacher, administrator, and college vice president, has 20 years of experience in education. As part of the sales and marketing team at Passport for Good, he works closely with districts to expand student engagement data and support student equity. He also oversees school district recruitment in Upstate New York. Rudley oversees business development efforts for Westchester, Putnam, Dutchess, Rockland counties and Long Island. She has held senior positions in the education advocacy and investment advisory fields. Rudley also serves on a Westchester County school board.

In addition, Jenny Marshall and Josh Hamilton joined Passport for Good as customer engagement specialists. In her role, Marshall implements strategies to onboard new schools with the platform and ensure their success moving forward. In addition to working directly with customers, she also works closely with the product team to address customer concerns, requests, and questions. Hamilton works to support school districts’ community engagement efforts by creating excitement around participation in Passport for Good. In addition, he provides students and educators with the tools to measure volunteerism, community service, and service learning through the facilitation of training both virtually and in person.
