BlueVolt, the leading provider of online Learning Management Systems (LMS) for the manufacturing, construction and service industries is pleased to announce the recent hire of four staff members: Kelley Shirazi, Whitney Ashe, Brandon Maskew and Lisa Curtis.
Shirazi is a new national accounts manager for BlueVolt and works closely with both new and existing BlueVolt customers to create optimal elearning solutions such as BlueVolt’s popular online Universities. Shirazi has a background in technology sales and worked for both Microsoft and EthicsPoint before joining the BlueVolt team. She earned her B.A. at the University of California, Davis and is working toward a master’s degree in nutrition.
“I’m thrilled to join the BlueVolt team,” said Shirazi. “BlueVolt’s innovative platform is designed to provide online training solutions that fit the customer’s needs, rather than fitting the customers into pre-determined molds. This leads to great relationships with customers and real results that improve their bottom lines.”
Whitney Ashe joined the Creative Development team as project manager. BlueVolt also added Brandon Maskew and Lisa Curtis as sales representatives, who will help customers use the BlueVolt LMS to its fullest – whether launching a University, organizing a webcast or helping them implement BlueVolt’s innovative $BlueBucks rewards program.
Ashe, a graduate of the University of Portland, previously worked at OHSU; Maskew graduated from Linfield College with a degree in communication; and Curtis received her Bachelor of Science in Psychology from University of Oregon. The new members of the sales team are eager to help increase the adoption of BlueVolt’s LMS throughout the construction and service industries. According to Curtis, the team’s goal is to “increase customer satisfaction and adoption of our LMS within the BlueVolt community as well as contribute to the growth and success of the BlueVolt team.”
“We are excited to expand our team in Portland with four top-notch employees and pleased with the continued growth of our company,” said Don Spear, president and CEO of BlueVolt. “We recently awarded our 2 millionth $BlueBuck and received www.TrainingIndustry.com Top Workforce Development provider and Learning Portal honors. We look forward to accelerating our growth and success by continuing to provide high-quality online training to our customers.”
