The Financial Times | IE Business School Corporate Learning Alliance was established as a joint venture in 2015 to combine academic thought-leadership with newsroom sensitivity, bringing together business school faculty with business savvy FT journalists to create unique customised corporate learning programs for its clients.
IEDP which has watched this initiative with great interest, as it has found a valuable place in the global executive development ecosystem, is pleased to hear that the Gustaf Nordbäck has been appointed as CEO, stepping into the shoes of the dynamic former CEO, VanDyck Silveira.
Nordbäck has a successful track record in the learning sector. He joins FT | IE Corporate Learning Alliance from DigiExam, a digital assessment platform used to create, administer and mark exams. He helped grow this business into a company serving over 2800 organisations across more than 80 countries.
He completed his Masters at Stockholm School of Economics, when he moved to London as an analyst at Deutsche Bank, followed by Citigroup, and then joined private equity fund GI Partners. An MBA at INSEAD launched his career at Rosetta Stone, the language technology software company. As MD for Europe he increased European revenues significantly, and followed this role as its MD for EMEA and Brazil.
Tas Viglatzis, Chairman of Corporate Learning Alliance, says: “Gustaf Nordbäck brings very valuable expertise and talent to our organisation at an important point, as we deliver our strategy to reinvent corporate learning over the coming years. I look forward to working closely with Gustaf to build on and enhance Corporate Learning Alliance’s successes and growth momentum.”
