Rise Up Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer Arnaud Blachon explains, “With the appointment of Camilia, we are taking a new approach to the UK market by choosing a leader who knows Rise Up better than any outsider. Following her success in leading the Benelux team, we are confident Camilia will help us drive success in the UKI and Netherlands, important markets for our European expansion."
Miccolis adds, “I’ve seen the tremendous impact Rise Up has delivered for customers in Benelux and I’m focused on building synergies and success for our English-speaking customers. We are here to help UK, Irish and Dutch organizations stay up-to-skill every day by delivering training at business speed.”
Miccolis started at Rise Up in 2019 in business development for both Luxembourg and France. Both French and Brazilian, Miccolis was born and raised in the United States. After graduating from Northeastern University in Boston, where she interned at Puma and Intralinks, she began a full-time job at IoT tech company Spiria. She then moved to Madrid to learn Spanish and work as an English teacher, prior to moving to Paris and joining Rise Up.
With a location in London, King’s Cross, Rise Up opened its office in the UK in 2021, achieving membership with the LPI and debuted on Fosway’s Learning Systems grid as a Core Challenger. With a rapidly growing team, Rise Up drives employee training and empowerment for various British brands such as training provider Red Driving School and NHS. The NHS team recently received this year's Silver Award for Excellence in the design of learning content at the #LT22Awards during Learning Technologies, thanks to the help of Rise Up. After two years in the Netherlands, Rise Up has an office in Amsterdam with a growing Dutch customer base including Eneco and Bunq.
In May 2022, Rise Up raised €30 million in Series B financing, and the company is pursuing its expansion across Europe. Today, its learning technology platform, combining LMS, LXP, and Authoring Tool across omnichannel and multimodal services, serves 1 million active learners in 73 countries and over 510 customers including AXA, Schneider Electric, Domino’s, NHS, Decathlon, and Sika.
