Klass Academy produces and markets Blended Training and Services for Finance, Sales & Order to Cash departments of companies. The start-up, headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland is active in local and international markets.
In 2002 Klara Boor and Steve Savva – Finance professionals with many years of experience in executing strategies and training people – met at an International Credit Management conference in Brussels. They became friends. Klara headed Credit Management of a leading global engineering firm in Switzerland; Steve directed a Credit Management Training company, with international coverage, in England.
Seeing many companies struggling to grow organically under constant cost pressure; they seized a unique opportunity to enhance team performances building on the concept of “Blended Learning”. Klass Academy is the brand name born out of “KLA” for Klara and “SS” being Steve’s initials. “Klass” also refers to the superior educational experience learners can benefit from. Klara and Steve was joined by a group of like-minded professionals and launched Klass Academy in June, 2020.
