Toronto (CA), February 2022 - Docebo Inc., a leading artificial intelligence (AI)-powered learning suite provider, has announced its acquisition of Skillslive, an educational consulting agency located in Melbourne, Australia, that takes a collaborative approach to align learning pathways with professional development, competencies, compliance, certification, and accreditation.
The acquisition of Skillslive will contribute to the expansion of Docebo's footprint in Australia and accelerate time-to-market by immediately adding specialized talent and infrastructure in the Asia-Pacific ("APAC") region.
Building from the Company's strong and growing presence in North America and Europe, local expansion into Australia represents the Company's next step in a larger strategy to better serve current customers and accelerate its commercial success in the APAC region.
"Skillslive's exceptionally talented local team was already familiar with our products and proved to be the perfect match for Docebo's culture and strategic goals," said Martino Bagini, Chief Corporate Development Officer. "The Skillslive acquisition enables us to be closer to our APAC customers to better drive them to success, from providing better services to gathering feedback from our regional enterprise customer base."
"We are beyond excited to join the Docebo team and bring our local expertise to the growing APAC market," said Gavin Russell, Co-Founder of Skillslive. "Docebo customers will benefit from our team's strategic insight, as well as technical and tactical know-how to maximize their learning initiatives and improve their business performance."
Gavin Russell's new role will be Regional Leader, APAC, reporting to Alessio Artuffo, President & Chief Revenue Officer.
