Birmingham (UK), July 2022 - eLearning solutions provider Omniplex Learning have announced the appointment of Patrick Jocelyn as CEO. Jocelyn, who is stepping up from his role as Chief Revenue Officer, will take over from current CEO and Omniplex Learning founder, Matthew Lloyd, in July.
Commenting on the appointment, Jocelyn said, "The L&D market is changing fast. As customer demand for digital transformation grows, especially when it comes to eLearning platforms, content, and training, we need the focus and drive to quickly execute in these growth areas. This will allow us to increase our pace and reach into the market."
Lloyd, who was instrumental in appointing Jocelyn, will become President and remain a shareholder and non-executive board member.

Lloyd said, "I'm immensely proud that we're now a leading brand in digital learning, and it's time to take the business to a higher level. Patrick has brought a large company view that has been fundamental to the next steps in our growth plans. I set this business up 17 years ago with a clear vision to radically improve workplace learning experiences - and it's now time for the next step in that journey."
Jocelyn has considerable experience in leading fast-growing businesses, having successfully overseen business growth plans at Autodesk, The Foundry, MeetingZone, and Emerald Works (Mind Tools for Business).
