Technology and learning specialist, Cognito Learning, has appointed business development manager, Neville Wray.

Neville joins from Safety Business Learning, where he spent seven years managing the sales operation and generating impressive revenue for the learning management system provider.

Neville said: “Having operated in the more traditional e-Learning space, within the educational technology sector, I could see that what Cognito Learning has to offer is true evolution.

“The Cognito Learning app is the final piece in the training and development puzzle, as it ensures what people learn actually sticks. Cognito Learning works in every sector – so the opportunities are vast.”

Leeds based Cognito Learning was founded in 2017 and provides companies in the UK, Europe and America with a unique digital learning app that uses the power of artificial intelligence and engaging gamification to continuously help employees to understand and retain learning and knowledge.

Employees using the app typically spend less than two minutes a day answering questions about training, products, procedures, compliance or anything else, to reinforce knowledge retention and give employers a valuable insight into where they need additional support or training.
Working with any organisation that employ more than 100 people, clients include well known organisations and brands like Guide Dogs, Audi, South Wales Police and West Brom Building Society.

Neville added: “I wanted a role that has diversity, client engagement and most importantly a company ethos I can believe in and be passionate about - Cognito Learning ticked all of those boxes.”

Mike Routledge, managing director said: “This year we have been named as one of the UK’s best and most innovative technology companies in the prestigious Rising Stars 3.0 competition. We are keen to build on this recognition and the positive client feedback we have received throughout 2020 by appointing a seasoned sales professional like Neville, who has over 20 years of sales experience.

“We are currently in discussions with several major German and Japanese motor manufacturers, a large US tech business and a number of international maritime organisations and Neville’s appointment will assist us with our plan to more than double our turnover by the end of 2021.”
