Marten Roorda


Marten Roorda joined ACT as CEO in 2015. Marten previously served as CEO of Cito, an international, not-for-profit assessment organization based in the Netherlands.

During his 13 years at Cito, Marten led the 600-employee organization to international recognition for its work in learning analytics and adaptive testing.

Marten is the longest-serving member of the Association of Test Publishers (ATP) Board of Directors. During his tenure, he was a founder of ATP Europe and ATP Asia.

Marten believes that the ACT mission aligns well with his personal mission—to improve the success of people in education and in the workforce.

“I am constantly thinking about the ACT mission and what a difference we can really make in society, closing the skills and achievement gaps, and creating equal chances for all,” Marten said.

Marten holds a master’s degree in Dutch language and literature from Utrecht University.
