Cognassist Chief Revenue Officer, Matthew Kelleher, says
“We are absolutely thrilled to have Mark join the commercial team. His experience and knowledge will ensure that Cognassist can continue to expand and help as many learners as possible.”
“I am very excited to be joining Cognassist as it is such an innovative, successful and ambitious organisation, with a great culture. I have always been an advocate of education technology and the impact it can have on learners and staff within educational institutions. I have led the successful implementation of Cognassist within two organisations and have seen for myself how it can support learners in overcoming barriers to learning and support their progress towards their life and career goals.
Cognassist already has a strong grounding in the apprenticeship sector and I’m looking forward to building on this and growing our partnerships even further. Apprenticeships will play a key role in the post-COVID recovery so it’s really important that all learners receive the support they need and that we leave no learner behind.”
