CPL Training Group announces board restructure
Thursday, 09 March 2017
CPL Training Group, the largest provider of licensed hospitality training, has restructured its current board. David Dasher, managing director of CPL Online, has been appointed chief data officer of CPL Training Group, which is set to come into effect in April 2017. Dasher will work internally and alongside clients to manage data insights, data governance and research and development.
The restructure is part of the company’s strategy to create a unified technology structure, identify revenue opportunities and reduce operating costs. Dasher will still oversee operations at CPL Online, with senior management responsible for the day-to-day running of the business.
Dasher said: “Over the past seven years, I’ve had the pleasure of seeing CPL Online flourish into a leading training and software company. With the promotion of senior management to the board of directors, the business has continued to progress in all areas.
“After strategically assessing the position of both companies, I made the decision to move into this new role, which marks an important step in the direction of the business. Data analytics have become fundamental to our internal and external operations, and this will continue to grow in the future. I’m excited to embark on this new challenge and build on the strong foundations already in place.”
Dasher first came into contact with CPL Training Group in 2009 when his business – Globexlive – was in the process of building a CRM platform for CPL. After establishing a strong relationship with CEO Daniel Davies, Dasher was offered to take the lead with CPL’s new e-learning business – CPL Online. The company is now a multi-service provider and has achieved 100% year-on-year growth since its inception.
Daniel Davies, CPL Training Group’s CEO, said: “David has made a significant impact on the business. Having started with a team of five employees in 2010, David called upon his experience and knowledge to develop CPL Online into the market leading company it is today. The business now has over 120 staff and is in a strong position to continually progress and invest in products and services. As chief data officer, David will play a major role in delivering continual growth and development of both brands. I’m looking forward to seeing the business move onto the next level.”
