Kevin Hager

Managing Director, Understood
Vice President and Chief Digital Officer, NCLD

As chief digital officer for the National Center for Learning Disabilities (NCLD), Kevin Hager’s primary responsibility is to lead Understood.org’s strategy and operations across the group ecosystem to support parents of the 1 in 5 kids with learning and attention issues.

Under Hager’s leadership, Understood has grown since its launch in October 2014 into an active online resource and community, reaching nearly 2 million visitors per month through personalized resources, tools and expert access. His passion for learning and attention issue advocacy comes from his personal experience living with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Hager serves on the national advisory board for SXSWEdu, is secretary of the board of directors for the Dramatists Guild Fund and regularly speaks at conferences, including the World Economic Forum, on development strategies.
