Skillable, a virtual labs company backed by Shamrock Capital, has hired Danny Abdo as chief operations officer.

He joins Skillable four months after Chris McCarthy, former CEO of Degreed, was named CEO. Together, they look to expand the company’s products and services as well as support customer needs. The expansion of the leadership team has also been met with an additional round of growth capital from Shamrock. This add-on investment aims to drive Skillable’s expansion into the enterprise learning and talent market as well as the continued growth of the company.

“The addition of Danny as chief operations officer underscores Skillable’s commitment to exceptional leadership across the organization,” comments Mike Wilkins, partner at Shamrock Capital. “We couldn’t be more excited to support the ongoing efforts of Skillable and the unprecedented opportunity that exists for validated and challenge-centric hands-on learning experiences.”
