New Executive Structure at Unicorn Training
Unicorn founder Peter Phillips takes over the day-to-day running of the business in his new role of Chief Executive Officer, while Ken Pringle, Chairman of Whitworths Limited and former CEO of Tetley Group, the world’s largest Tea Company, becomes non-executive Chairman. McWilliams remains on the Unicorn Board as a non-executive director.
Over the past three years Unicorn Training, which celebrates its 25th anniversary next year, has expanded rapidly, repositioning its business as an integrated solutions provider, able to service the end-to-end needs of its customers.
The company has recorded consistent year-on-year growth culminating in record sales and profits in the last year, and the new structure reflects this expansion.
Peter Phillips commented: “Neill has played a huge part in the development and success of Unicorn over the past six years, and he is stepping back at a time when the business has delivered record sales and profits and stands proudly as the eLearning Development Company of the Year. I am pleased that he has agreed to remain on the Board in a non-executive capacity. I am also delighted that Ken Pringle has agreed to take on the Chairman’s role. Ken has been a member of the Unicorn Training Board for several years. He has vast business experience and will be a great asset to us in his new role. “
Neill McWilliams added: “Unicorn Training has expanded to be the leading eLearning solutions company within the financial sector, both in terms of growth and reputation. These factors, coupled with the excellent team that we have at Unicorn Training, affords me the perfect opportunity to leave the company on a high to pursue some other personal and business interests. I am confident Unicorn will continue to grow from strength to strength.”
