mLevel, Inc., a global leader in micro learning platforms, today announced plans to move its company headquarters from Chicago to Atlanta. Additionally, Jordan Fladell, mLevel co-founder, will assume the position of chief executive officer (CEO). mLevel micro learning platforms are currently used by enterprises worldwide, including at many Fortune 500 companies, to improve how employees, students and other groups learn.
"We're excited to move our headquarters to Atlanta and become a stronger member of the local business community," said Fladell. "As a 24-plus year resident of the area, I'm proud to lead the company as we make this momentous step in support of both mLevel and the region. Atlanta puts education in high regard and integrates it closely into business activities. We'll be continually looking for ways to further those goals and, hopefully, give back to the community."
Fladell explained that the move would potentially result in 15 to 20 new jobs in the area short-term, with expansion plans likely in the next few years. By moving its headquarters to Atlanta, the company will also be closer to several of its largest customers, as well as investment partners BIP Capital and Slalom Consulting.
"mLevel's corporate headquarters relocation from Chicago to Cobb County is another testament to Metro Atlanta's rapidly growing digital media cluster," said David Hartnett, senior vice president of Economic Development for the Metro Atlanta Chamber. "mLevel's lead investor, BIP Capital, continues to play a vital role in the growth of our region's venture capital base."
"This expansion reinforces the great partnership between our community and the Metro Atlanta Chamber," saidBrooks Mathis, senior vice president of Economic Development for the Cobb Chamber of Commerce. "Companies such as mLevel are creating the type of jobs and innovation that we are proud to have in Cobb County."
