Coursera, the world’s leading online learning platform, today announced the appointment of Anthony Tattersall as the new Head of Enterprise for EMEA. Anthony will oversee the growth of Coursera’s enterprise solution, Coursera for Business, helping companies to train their employees to give them the critical skills they will need for the future and achieve their workforce transformation goals. He will take over responsibilities for Stephanie Durand, who after building EMEA from the ground up, is transitioning to New York City to focus on growing the company’s East Coast presence.
Anthony brings more than 20 years of technology and corporate learning experience to the role. He was most recently the Area Vice President UK at Cornerstone OnDemand, where he led the direct sales organisation across the UK & Ireland. Before that, he held several leadership positions as Chief Sales Officer for Launchpad Recruits, Sales Director EMEA for Cogeco Peer 1, and UK Country Manager for Kronos. He also has an MBA from Durham University Business School.
“In a world that is constantly changing, one thing is clear — companies need talent with the skills of tomorrow, today” said Leah Belsky, Vice President of Enterprise for Coursera. “I’m thrilled to welcome Anthony to lead Coursera for Business in EMEA, equipping businesses with the transformative learning needed for a brighter, more skilled future.”
“EMEA is undergoing a massive digital transformation that requires businesses to rethink their workforce development strategy,” said Anthony Tattersall, Head of Enterprise, EMEA. “I’m excited to join Coursera, which is reimagining enterprise learning by providing world-class content and a superior learning experience to meet companies’ strategic and long-term deep-skilling needs.”
With more than 130% year on year growth, Anthony will take over leadership for the region that is rapidly adopting the Coursera enterprise platform, now used by many major European companies such as AXA, Airbus, and L’Oréal. This demand will only continue as traditional industries like manufacturing, banking, and financial services undergo digital transformation and are therefore increasingly seeking out talent with the necessary skills in data, cloud, AI and machine learning. Anthony will partner with current and potential EMEA customers through this transition, while growing the team’s impact across a wide range of industries in the region.
More than 1,500 companies globally use Coursera for Business today. Customers have access to in-depth content from over 170 top universities, reputable and stackable certifications, a complete and easy-to-use mobile platform, and powerful features like Skills Benchmarking.
