Learning Pool makes strategic US appointment to its leadership team
Harper Wells announced as new chief compliance officer at Learning Pool
Learning Pool, the Derry headquartered international leader in learning technology, with offices in the UK and US, has today announced the appointment of Harper Wells as chief compliance officer (CCO).
Wells takes up this 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.
She brings extensive experience in leading compliance and ethics programmes, driving product strategy and providing industry thought leadership.
Prior to joining Learning Pool, Wells held several compliance, risk, and governance positions, including at Sempra Energy, a San Diego, California-based energy services holding company, for 14 years.
Wells said, “I am thrilled to join Learning Pool at an exciting time in the company’s growth. In the post–COVID business world, many businesses are beginning to face new ethics and compliance challenges related to the changing business and consumer landscape, our company included.
“In this regard, it is essential that 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, Wells played a leading role in developing award-winning programs to proactively manage compliance risk and drive better business outcomes for Fortune 500 companies in the US.
Commenting on the appointment, 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.”
