Andy McAnulla – President (BTL Surpass Inc.) | CTO (BTL Group Ltd.)
“I am passionate about finding ways use technology judiciously to improve the assessment process and provide test publishers and candidates with the best possible experience.”
With a strong background in software engineering and architecture, Andy has a proven track record for successfully delivering large scale technology projects, and works closely with our clients across the world, including more recently our North American Surpass partners, such as Prometric and the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME).
He remains heavily involved in the design and implementation of assessment technology, and is responsible for the overall development strategy of Surpass – The Assessment Platform, leading over 190 engineers in over 20 Agile development teams working on over $10 million annual continuous investment and advancement of the software.
Andy started his journey with BTL Group Ltd. in 2000, immediately displaying talent for technology and enthusiasm for improving the way students are tested. It is this continued passion for improvement that has seen the presence of BTL Surpass Inc. grow significantly under Andy’s leadership, and his contributions to Surpass have been a compelling factor in the assessment platform winning various awards – most recently taking the ATP 2017 innovation judges award as the product most likely to succeed.
Andy’s dedication to the industry have led to him being elected to the board of the e-Assessment Association for a maximum term of 3 years, and earned him the “Technology Industry Award” from the UK’s Chartered Institute of IT (the British Computing Society) for his contribution in designing and implementing the breakthrough assessment technology system which became Surpass and now underpins some of the largest summative testing programs in the world as a common platform.
