Huntington Learning Center is led by a visionary executive team that is passionate about franchisee success
Raymond J. Huntington, PhD, Chairman of the Board, Co-Founder
Prior to co-founding Huntington Learning Center with his wife, Eileen, Ray served as a senior business analyst for a Fortune 100 company and as a college-level instructor in math and statistics. At the time the couple launched their new business, tutoring centers did not exist, and Ray brought his business acumen and vision to work, making the dream to help students a reality and a thriving business. Sharing a strong desire to do something that is personally and professionally rewarding, the couple has seen their business grow from a single location into one of the nation’s leading tutoring services. Ray holds a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Statistics from Rutgers University and a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics degree from Manhattan College.
