Jonathan Hanover has been named general manager of HopSkipDrive, a Colorado ride service for kids.
Hanover will lead growth and partnership efforts in Denver and expansion to other Colorado cities. He will oversee all local operations, including outreach to public and independent schools, as well as CareDriver recruitment and community management.
“Jon’s passion for education and his entrepreneurial spirit are the perfect combination for someone to lead our efforts in Colorado,” HopSkipDrive CEO and co-founder Joanna McFarland said in a news release. “Colorado is a leader in school choice with open enrollment options that require innovative transportation solutions. Jon’s experience with schools, families and children in the state will help us grow and spread our mission of making families’ lives easier.”
Hanover was the founder, principal and executive director of the Denver charter school Roots Elementary, which garnered national attention for its innovative model. Prior to Roots, Hanover was a founding kindergarten teacher, grade level chair and member of the school leadership team at Rocky Mountain Prep.
He also served on the investment team at the Charter School Growth Fund, where he worked closely with leaders of the most successful and innovative charter school networks in the country. Hanover began his career at Bain & Company, where he advised clients on strategy, management and operations.
Hanover earned his bachelor’s degree from Harvard University. He was also awarded the Congressional Admiral Rickover Medal of Excellence as a member of Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Research Science Institute.
“I look forward to joining this passionate, mission-driven team working to make modern parenting less of a logistical challenge,” Hanover said in the release. “HopSkipDrive has the potential to be an especially impactful partner for schools serving under-resourced families.”
Founded four years ago by three working moms, HopSkipDrive offers safe, convenient and dependable rides for kids with real-time monitoring, the highest industry safety standards, and experienced caregivers, the release said. Families throughout the Denver area can now schedule rides for kids ages 6 and older at www.hopskipdrive.com/ or through the HopSkipDrive app.
