October 24, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Cobent, a leading provider of solutions for e-learning, training and compliance-led process management across the entire range of international blue-chip companies, fast-growth start-ups, and public sector organisations, has expanded its team with the addition of four senior appointments. They are:
ē Jordan Ambrose: who has become Cobentís sales director. Ambrose brings to his new role more than ten years of sales management experience, eight of which have been spent in the e-learning marketplace.

Ambrose, who oversees Cobentís direct and channel sales, was previously at the ILX Group plc, where he managed e-learning solutions for organisations such as Nestle, British American Tobacco, Xerox and Pirelli.

ē Phil Clare: who is head of Cobentís development team. Based at Cobentís Manchester offices, Clare is a graduate in computing from Manchester Metropolitan University and a Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer, who ran his own computer software business before joining Cobent.

ē Denise Harvey: who has become Cobentís project and implementation manager. Previously the environment and implementation manager for financial advisers and stockbrokers, T D Waterhouse Investor Services Europe, Harvey holds ITIL practitioner qualifications in (software) release management and service management.

Her role at Cobent includes project management as well as overseeing the quality control of Cobentís software and Cobentís post-implementation support infrastructure.

ē Alistair Morrison: who has joined Cobent as a non-executive director. Morrison, also a non-executive director of the consultancy-led publishing house Echelon, was - as managing director of learning content producer Skillchange Systems - one of the leaders of the UKís embryonic e-learning industry in the 1990s.

Previously an operational board director at defence and space specialists Vega plc and later marketing director at the specialist research and training company, Lorien Customer Focus (LCF), part of Lorien plc, Morrison will be making his industry contacts and considerable financial and marketing experience available to Cobent.

Howard Sears, Cobentís CEO, commented: ďThe appointments of Jordan, Phil and Denise, as well as Alistair, will help to drive our business forward. Between them, they have a wealth of experience and widespread sector knowledge which will help to cement the Cobent Learning Compliance Suite (LCS) as one of the best known and most widely used solutions for managing and controlling enterprise wide learning.Ē
