Company Expands Field Executive Team With Nine New Members as Q1 Earnings Reflect Continued Growth

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - Apr 7, 2016) - StormWind Studios, the leading interactive online training and e-learning company, announced today the addition of several new team members, including Senior Vice President of Enterprise Sales, Rob Stephan. The company's first quarter earnings and top tier client acquisitions show continued growth and market share. Additionally, as part of its mission to offer the best experience to its clients, another nine top performing field executives have joined StormWind from key companies in the industry such as Global Knowledge.

Stephan comes to StormWind Studios with a wealth of experience in information technology sales from Cisco, RSA, KnowledgeNet, Apple, and several other notable entities. His role is to lead the enterprise sales team in connecting with Fortune 500 companies to help train employees on Cisco, Microsoft, RedHat, and VMware, as well as cybersecurity courses like ITIL and Ethical Hacker.

"I am looking forward to taking StormWind to yet another level of greatness," said Stephan. "I have been in this business for more than 25 years and am thrilled to bring these innovative, cost-saving solutions to more Fortune 500 companies; IT training is a key component of productivity -- it has never been done this way before and it makes me proud to be on the forefront of a revolution in the industry."

Stephan resides in the New York City area and is an avid sailboat racing enthusiast, with local and national titles in the sport. He holds an Bachelor of Science in Marketing from Stockton University and did graduate work at both Monmouth University and the Kellogg School at Northwestern University.

"We know from experience that most people view IT training as boring, tedious, and an expensive time suck," said Corey Frank, COO and co-founder of StormWind Studios. "We've been able to change that perception by bringing Hollywood-style excitement to the world of IT training -- we offer complete, more effective training courses in half the time, at half the cost of 'the other guys.'" The fact that we are continuing to land some of the best talent our competition once had is further proof that StormWind will continue to leave other, once popular, IT training companies in the dust. "

StormWind Studios closed out quarter one on track to continue their 50 percent year-over-year growth for 2016. The continued growth, combined with the recruitment of the best executives in the industry, further proves that StormWind Studios attracts leading enterprises and talent because of their approach and innovation in the e-learning space.
