Luke Pargeter, iAM-compliant CEO and founder added: “Our iAM compliant and iAM learning brands have gained true brand traction and are already globally recognized. With funding, it is expected to leverage and extend existing products, focusing on additional online compliance app features and better content covering a wide range of topics from mental health to soft skills. We are really excited to work within this means of partnership.”
