We’re really pleased to announce the appointment of Duncan Barrett as Global Head of Product. He will report to Andrea Miles, General Manager of Lumesse Learning, with a remit to strengthen the division’s competitive product position and ensure that sales, marketing, research and product management have a fully integrated approach and strategic go-to-market plan. The ubiquity of mobile devices in the enterprise and growth of BYOD schemes and more self-directed learners means that learning platforms now have to embrace a learner-centric, multi-device future, with increased focus on the learner experience.
Duncan Barrett brings a strong background in SaaS, digital, mobile and content with experience spanning B2C, B2B and educational markets, including stints at the BBC and Cambridge Assessment. With full responsibility for product roadmaps, he will steer the destiny of the division’s SaaS products, content authoring platform CourseBuilder and learning platform Learning Gateway.
Andrea Miles, General Manager, Lumesse Learning, said: ‘We are delighted to have Duncan on board at an exciting time for our product portfolio. This is the year of the omnichannel for us, with content authoring, access and learner management now addressing all digital devices and channels – reflecting the changing behaviour of learners and the business needs of our clients’ organisations. His experience and background are a perfect fit with this vision, and I look forward to working with him.’
