On Friday 23rd March 2018, CPL Training Group confirmed the sale of CPL Online to CGA Group, a data and research consultancy in the food and drink sector.

CPL Online founder David Dasher will now be joined in an expanded management team by Jon Collins as Executive Chairman and current CGA Retail Director Jamie Campbell, who brings a wealth of hospitality retail expertise and experience.

“Since 2010, CPL Online has achieved remarkable levels of growth,” said Daniel Davies, Chief Executive of CPL Training Group. “In the last two years, the company’s position has stabilised, and after coming to the end of our five-year plan, we agreed the best direction for CPL Training Group is to focus on our core business model – face-to-face training.” “I am hugely proud over our achievements with CPL Online to date, and I know the CGA team are the right people to build on that legacy. I look forward to working with them as we execute our exciting vision for CPL Training, where we will concentrate on delivering more extensive training programmes.”
