Relias is also promoting from within; appointing Ben Johnson, former Vice President of Engineering, to the Vice President of Products.
Eric Masters joins Relias Learning with over 15 years of experience driving top-line business growth and overall brand awareness. Previously the Vice President of Marketing for CareAnywhere, a company in the homecare EMR market, Eric has extensive experience as a B2B marketer for healthcare and also spent 10 years in various marketing and leadership roles at The Coca-Cola Company, one of the preeminent marketing organizations in the world. Eric holds a Bachelor of the Arts degree from Drexel University and an MBA from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.

“Relias has more than doubled in the past year. We now serve over 3,500 clients with over 1.7 million learners taking more than one million online training courses every month! Still, only a small fraction of the market is taking advantage of online learning,” says Jim Triandiflou, CEO of Relias Learning. “We see tremendous growth in the years ahead and it’s critical that Relias has the leadership team to steer the company through this time of expansion.
