"The skills and experiences that Nate brings to the leadership team are exceptionally aligned with our product and growth plans for 2024. With his unique lab expertise and proven track record in developing new products, scaling product teams and driving additional revenue opportunities, Nate will be a huge asset as Skillable looks to expand its remit across the global enterprise space.”

One of Nate’s initial focus areas is usability, further improving and simplifying the user experience of Skillable, which the company has been consistently scoring highly for in G2 rankings. Among its many badges, Skillable has been ranked top in Usability, as the “Easiest To Use in Virtual IT Labs software” and has the Highest User Adoption in the Enterprise space.  

Nate said, “Usability is key to improving learning engagement and facilitating continuous skill development, especially at a time where a third of employees lack the motivation to train and 37% feel frustrated that training doesn’t match their expertise level. Aligning learning opportunities with real-world work applications can provide a reason for individuals to learn, and that’s exactly what Skillable’s experiential learning labs and challenges offer — ensuring someone is truly ready to perform in their job. I’m looking forward to enhancing the Skillable product offering further, scaling hands-on learning to enterprises globally.”
