Studying Pool Recruits VP, North American Gross sales
Learning Pool brings new VP of North American Sales on board
Based in Chicago, Illinois, Kevin is an accomplished sales executive with over 20 years of sales, sales management, and consulting experience. Kevin’s career spanned organizations from pre-IPO to Fortune 100 and has resulted in scaling high-growth global tech companies, startups and corporations, and other SaaS organizations.
Previously Senior VP of Sales at Kazoo HR and most recently VP of Global Sales at Cloud Academy, Kevin is a strategic leader who has defined and delivered results across numerous industries through value management, professionally managed change, and adherence to sales processes.
Regarding the appointment, Kevin said:
“I am honored to be part of the Learning Pool team and to help build on the solid foundation that has been built over the past 15 years. With its award-winning offerings and world-class customer experience, Learning Pool is perfectly positioned to revolutionize the North American learning and development industry. I am looking forward to the challenge of building and leading the sales organization in order to further drive the success of Learning Pool. “
Following the recent acquisition of Colorado-based LMS specialist Remote Learner, Kevin’s appointment comes at an exciting time for Learning Pool as the company continues to build its global brand and achieve ambitious growth in the North American market.
Duncan Shores welcomed Kevin, Chief Commercial Officer of Learning Pool, and said:
“Kevin joins us at a crucial moment for Learning Pool in the US and Canada. After adding a number of Fortune 1000 customers last year and welcoming a new team of colleagues from Remote Learner, we’re doubling our previous investments in the region by rapidly expanding our sales and marketing team. I have no doubt that Kevin’s previous industry experience, particularly nearly a decade at Skillsoft Corporation, and his leadership style will greatly benefit Learning Pool Inc. for the foreseeable future. ”
