Meridian Knowledge Solutions, a leading learning management solution provider, is pleased to announce the celebration of 25 years serving the Learning and Development market. With its award-winning training platform, Meridian LMS offers blended learning models, advanced intuitive course offerings, as well as strict compliance training standards.

Jonna Ward, the CEO of Meridian Knowledge Solutions, has built the organization from a small software company to an industry-leading global tech firm. Since 1997, Meridian has been guiding private and public sector organizations toward their business goals while developing a more streamlined learning process.

“My goal for this company has always been to offer a comprehensive and intuitive learning management solution that could offer compliance, career development, thorough employee training, and eCommerce for the extended enterprise,” Ward said. “It has been incredible to see the company flourish while working alongside a talented, driven, and loyal team.”

Over the last two and a half decades, the company has expanded its customer base by partnering with content providers and trusted communities. This allowed Meridian to not only continuously improve product offerings, but to also grow a team of incredibly talented professionals committed to the interests of their customers.

As a result of Meridian’s ability to evolve with a changing industry, they have accumulated a variety of remarkable awards over the years. In 2020, Meridian was named Smartchoice Preferred LMS Provider for offering a solution to complex government compliance and security requirements. In 2022 Meridian was awarded among the Top 10 Microlearning and Blended Learning LMS Software Solutions.
