Learning Pool to grow US business to over 50% following acquisition of Remote Learner

Northern Ireland headquartered Learning Pool expects to grow its business in the US to more than 50% of turnover following a recent Ulster Bank-backed acquisition.

As part of ambitious expansion plans targeting the US market, e-learning company Learning Pool has acquired Colorado-based Remote Learner last month. This is the fourth company to join the Learning Pool Group and the third acquisition supported by Ulster Bank.

For the last two decades Learning Pool has delivered e-learning solutions to thousands of clients including recruitment giant Indeed, Royal Caribbean Group and Ultimate Kronos Group. The company’s client base totals more than 1,100 companies around the world, and its e-learning solutions are estimated to support 5.1 million learners. From its first acquisition in 2016, Learning Pool’s global workforce has grown three-fold from 80 to more than 260 today.

Learning Pool Group CEO Paul McElvaney said today:

“Acquiring Remote Learner is strategically important for us and will help us grow our US business which currently accounts for about 30% of turnover and we expect to increase to 50% pretty quickly. Ulster Bank has supported us to make our last three acquisitions and have been a great help to us on that journey.”
