Fuse expands leadership team to support scaling growth

Fuse, the learning and knowledge platform for enterprise that ignites people and business performance, today announces the expansion of its senior leadership team with two significant new hires – a move that will help prepare the learning tech scaleup for its next phase of growth.

Learning industry veteran, Roberta Gogos, who previously held senior marketing roles at Docebo, Looop, and The Starr Conspiracy, joins Fuse as VP of Marketing and takes responsibility for leading the company’s strategic marketing at a global level.

Tom Ridley, who joins as VP of Sales EMEA, is equally ingrained in the learning tech industry having formerly held senior sales and customer success roles at Valamis and Skillsoft.

Commenting on the two new hires, Fuse CEO, Luke Oubridge, said: “Both Roberta and Tom bring with them a wealth of industry and functional expertise and their respective appointments will play a key part in supporting the business as we continue to grow and expand into new markets.”

Luke continued: “We have developed a product that is second to none and we have very ambitious plans for taking that to market over the coming months and beyond. Roberta and Tom – along with the rest of the fantastic talent we have at Fuse – will be pivotal to that and we’re delighted to have them onboard.”

Roberta Gogos – who first joined Fuse in the capacity of senior marketing consultant before assuming her new role last month, commented: “As an industry, we need to move beyond the course mindset and start facilitating human connection and knowledge sharing at scale. These are the learning experiences that drive people and business performance – and it’s very much the Fuse way. This is really what inspired me to join the team at this very exciting juncture.”

Echoing Roberta’s comments, Tom Ridley – who officially joined the Fuse team in June this year, said: “Fuse is on a mission to forever change enterprise L&D. The platform is highly innovative in the truest sense of the word and it’s set to transform not only how people learn at work, but how well they perform as a result. That’s incredibly exciting and I’m delighted to be leading the EMEA sales effort as Fuse continues to scale upwards and outwards.”
