Nimble is growing. Our continued success has led to some important appointments since the start of 2017 to meet that growth. Let’s introduce you to them.
Stuart Arthur is our new Development Team Manager, his role is to lead the development of Nimble, to keep it improving it for our customers and making it attractive for people looking for a cost-effective, easy-to-use elearning platform. He will work with our development team in our Bristol office.
Stuart was part of a highly competitive field of candidates and had an amazing CV. He’s worked in the industry as well as in local and national government, he was co-author of a report for the Welsh Assembly on the future of IT in their education system so his innovation credentials are impressive. Stuart even turned down a job in London to work for us because, as he puts it, “There’s a strong emphasis on innovation at Nimble and I can see potential for the company to grow quickly whilst maintaining the things that make it such a success.”
Wendy Stanley has joined Ben as a Product Consultant. Like so many people, she’d known Neil for a long time (who doesn’t??) and watched the company grow and was eager to come on board. She highlighted three reasons for her choice: the simplicity of the platform, the ‘customer-first’ attitude and the team (apparently we’re friendly, fun and hardworking!).
Wendy also has a great CV and background in the industry. She’s helped charities, SMEs and corporate organisations achieve their learning goals. She’s also a life-long learner herself, having completed her CIPD Level 5 in Learning & Development as well as being ILM qualified.
Jo Butler is our new marketing manager and brings an international dimension to the team, as a one-time American from New Jersey who chose to make her home in the UK. She’s got a range of very useful experiences, having worked in educational publishing and technology, she has also been a senior Graphics Designer and is creative in so many ways it's jaw-dropping! Jo is also a musician and singer and can be found performing in the Stroud area regularly.
Sven Brooke has stepped in as our Support Consultant for Laura while she is on maternity leave. Sven is another one who’s known Neil for ages and when he’s not helping customers overcome a snag or two, he’s being a whizz-kid with graphical and video technology. Sven’s current claim to fame is as a designer for some Dr Who boxsets! He is another team member with a diverse range of skills, so when anyone asks the question, “Who can do that?”, there’s a chorus that replies “Sven!”
So, as you can see, we’ve acquired some real talent to add to our great team! If you sign up for the Community Day on September 14th, you’ll get a chance to meet them too!
