Pearson. Publishing giant Pearson took on a much bigger change project at the end of 2012 when John Fallon took the CEO reins from longtime leader Marjorie Scardino. Rather than getting a feel for the way the company operated during his first few months on the job, Fallon announced an entirely ...
On a light-hearted note, Marjorie Scardino, former head of Pearson PLC, was once asked by a journalist what it was like to be the first woman chief executive of a FTSE 100 company. “Well, I'm the only one that wears a dress”, she replied in her laconic Texan drawl. We need young women to see politics as ...

Following the company's repositioning under Marjorie Scardino, which saw Pearson retract from UK media ownership (having formerly owned the Financial Times and half of The Economist, among other famous names) and enter into education, where the company sold textbooks to schools and ...
Even Pearson accepts that it is too early to call a turning point in US higher education. The company is being reshaped.

Trickier to explain, however, is Fallon's relative confidence only three months ago.

In the event, revenues plunged 30% in the final quarter of ...
