FRISCO, Texas — Oct. 27, 2020 — Trivie, an AI-based learning platform that helps employees work more efficiently by retaining training information, has announced the new hires of Executive Vice President of Marketing Dustin Joost and Executive Vice President of Technology, Eric Montgomery. The additions bring a combined 30+ years of experience to Trivie and position the company for tremendous growth and increased opportunity to change the way humans learn.

“At Trivie, our mission is to empower people to know what they are supposed to know,” said Lawrence Schwartz, CEO, and Co-founder of Trivie. “Dustin and Eric both have a vast amount of experience to help foster that mission while bringing a tremendous amount of positive energy that our customers are accustomed to. We are ecstatic to have them join our growing company.”

In his new role, Joost will oversee all go-to-market and growth efforts for the Frisco, Texas-based company. Prior to Trivie, Joost served as VP Sales and Marketing of YourCause, connecting corporations and their employees to the causes they care about. There he built the sales and marketing organization from the ground up, leading the company’s growth to hundreds of corporations representing more than 8M employees, transacting over $3 billion to charities around the globe, and eventually led the company to its acquisition by Blackbaud (NASDAQ: BLKB).

“Trivie has unbounded potential to change the way companies approach corporate training and learning strategies in general,” said Joost. “It’s important to realize the need to empower and equip employees with tools to do their jobs properly. Coming from a role helping corporations build cultures of doing good, I’m most excited about now working with organizations to build cultures of learning and growth that ultimately help employees fulfill their purpose and achieve their potential.”

Montgomery will oversee Trivie’s SaaS-based software development, integration, strategy, and various other technologies. Previously, Montgomery was Vice President of Information Technology for Susan G. Komen, the largest breast cancer foundation. Before Komen, Montgomery has successfully led and managed software and technology teams at companies, including Intuit, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and Raytheon.

“I am thrilled to be jumping in with Trivie at such a high-growth stage and to begin working with an engineering team that has built a product that is currently impacting so many companies in a meaningful way,” said Montgomery.

Corporate training and workforce learning have shifted dramatically over the last six months, and many learning and development managers are at a material disadvantage when it comes to the process of onboarding and training employees. Trivie solves these remote learning challenges with an “instant-on,” easy to use, knowledge retention platform that can be deployed within minutes. The company aims to create a future of learning that is more agile, engaging, and integrated into our everyday lives, inside and outside of a corporate environment.
