The LPI (Learning and Performance Institute) has hired Cathy Hoy as chief learning officer (CLO).
In her role as CLO, Cathy works closely with the LPI's leadership and management teams to drive the L&D profession forward through the development of new LPI programmes, and by expanding the LPI's global network of partners, consultants, and analysts. Central to this business focus is identifying and developing important future strategies based on data, market trends and learning cultures.
Before joining LPI, Cathy held senior positions at leading global brands, including European Head of L&D (commercial) at Coca-Cola European Partners, Global L&D Director at Soho House & Co, Global Senior L&D Manager at Expedia, Global Training Manager at Tesco, and Learning & Development Partner at The White Company.
"Cathy is a widely-respected, talented, and high-impact leader and we are excited to have her join us as CLO," says LPI CEO Ed Monk in a statement. "Her experience of building high-performing teams, combined with a strong knowledge of leading businesses through culture change and setting the strategic direction for learning will serve her well in this new role. With Cathy on the team, the LPI's vision and strategy will be hugely augmented, allowing us to gain new perspectives, and find new ways to stay at the leading edge of workplace learning.
"Now more than ever, the acceleration of digital transformation in learning needs an alignment of culture, data, people skills and technologies. Cathy will be a key stakeholder to help our industry enact sustainable transformation, and truly realise the power of learning to improve business performance."
Cathy Hoy said: "I am very excited to be working with the LPI - the global body for workplace learning - as we develop new and innovative solutions to help learning leaders address the challenges they are facing. I can also say that the global side of the LPI is an area of focus, as the influence of those organisations continues to grow. We are working with some of the most exciting companies in the world, and the data that gives us enables us to fashion solutions for everyone."
