Executive Biography

Paul Gangi, associate director of development at Canterbury School, and former president of Internet Services Division at Harris Connect, has spent the majority of his career as a new-media pioneer. In the earlier years, Gangi’s focus was optimization of email, chat boards and e-commerce on the original online Prodigy Services. During the more recent 15 years of his career, he led the strategic efforts of Harris Connect in migrating the print-directory business to the Internet.

Gangi was responsible for building the Internet business at Harris Connect, including obtaining a dominant share of the marketplace in the areas of higher education and professional associations. He eventually became responsible for all of the company’s sales and marketing, and was a member of the senior team which oversaw the successful sale of the company. After fulfilling a contractual commitment with the new owners, he then transitioned into the role of Director of Planned Gifts at Canterbury School as well as launching a consulting career.

Prior to his new-media endeavors, Gangi worked in publishing and banking, in a variety of capacities. He earned a bachelor’s degree from Boston College and a master of business administration from Pace University.
