Sam Blyth, Chair, Blyth Academy is delighted to announce the addition of Michael O’Sullivan to our expanding international program in China.

Mr. O’Sullivan joins us from Cambridge Assessment International Education, where he was CEO. Cambridge Assessment International Education is the world’s leading provider of international education qualifications and curriculum. It provides Cambridge IGCSEs and International A levels in 160 countries globally.

A Fellow of Wolfson College, University of Cambridge, and the former Director of the Cambridge Commonwealth, European and International Trust, Mr. O’Sullivan is a graduate of Cambridge and Oxford Universities and speaks French, German and Chinese.

He has spent much of his professional career in China, most recently from 2000-2008 in Beijing, where he was first Director of the British Council China and Counsellor (Education and Culture) at the British Embassy, then Secretary General of the EU Chamber of Commerce in China.

Mr. O’Sullivan will be taking up a position later this year as President of the China subsidiary of Blyth Academy, a leading Canadian private education company. He will be spending a good deal of his time in China, where recently Blyth Academy and TUS Education (part of TUS Holdings, spun off from Tsinghua University and now China’s leading science park operator) announced a strategic partnership to develop Sino-Canadian collaborative education programmes.
