LEARNING Pool, the Derry headquartered international leader in learning technology, has appointed Harper Wells as its chief compliance officer (CCO).

She takes up the role following the recent acquisition of True Office Learning, a US-based eLearning and analytics company, where she was director of compliance insights and strategy for three years.

Ms Wells brings extensive experience in leading compliance and ethics programmes, driving product strategy and providing industry thought leadership.

Prior to joining Learning Pool, she held several compliance, risk, and governance positions, including at Sempra Energy, a San Diego-based energy services holding company, for 14 years.

Ms Wells said: “I'm thrilled to join Learning Pool at an exciting time in the company’s growth. In the post–Covid world, many businesses are beginning to face new ethics and compliance challenges related to the changing business and consumer landscape, our company included.

“So it is essential businesses have the agility to evolve with this changing landscape for their people and their consumers. Learning Pool is expertly placed to face these challenges and I look forward to contributing to the company’s future success.”

In her previous role at True Office Learning, she played a leading role in developing award-winning programmes to proactively manage compliance risk and drive better business outcomes for Fortune 500 companies in the US.

Paul McElvaney, founder and executive chair of Learning Pool, said: “Our recent acquisition of True Office Learning highlights our commitment to improving compliance standards across our company and for our customers. We are delighted to welcome Harper to our team.

“True Office has led the market in changing the way businesses think about using technology and data to drive real behaviour change among the workforces of its customers.

“As we move to a new normal in working practices globally, we’re excited about how we can apply this capability across the enterprise to help our customers achieve even more extraordinary outcomes for their staff and stakeholders.”
