CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - October 14, 2015) - SurePeople, a global provider of cloud-based intelligent learning and talent performance solutions, officially announced today that Juan Antonio Ruiz-Hau has joined the company's leadership team as its new Senior Vice President of Strategic Learning.

As SVP of Strategic Learning, Ruiz-Hau guides SurePeople ( in creating innovative L&D solutions that build high‐performing teams, align professional development programs with organizational objectives, inspire future leaders, and deliver a measurable return on investment.

With SurePeople, all of our cloud-based applications are driven by data and analytics from individual employees and the larger organizational structure," says Ruiz-Hau. "What we've brought to the marketplace is an intelligent solution that modernizes a fragmented landscape of psychometric assessments, human capital analytics, and L&D and talent performance applications. Now, organizations can turn to one platform to expand their reach and provide the right learning opportunities for employees everywhere."

During his career, Ruiz-Hau has served as a consultant and held executive L&D and training positions in companies such as Monster Worldwide and DigitasLBi, a member of the Publicis Groupe. While at DigitasLBi, he shaped the learning agenda for nearly 3,000 workers around the world and spearheaded leadership development workshops for employees. Ruiz-Hau's workshops were also implemented by other Publicis Groupe agencies, including Leo Burnett and Razorfish.

"Juan brings a deep history of L&D experience and knowledge to our leadership team. His passion and commitment to excellence has proven to deliver a positive return on an organization's investment in employee development," says Niko Drakoulis, Founder and CEO of SurePeople. "It's exciting to see an experienced and dynamic leader like Juan leverage our intelligent learning platform to create solutions that drive performance and measurable results for our customers."
