Sciolytix Bolsters Leadership Team with New Chief Science Officer and Head of Sales

Chief Science Officer and SVP of Product Management David Solot, Ph.D., and SVP of Sales Andy Smith both bring extensive and relevant experience to Sciolytix in pursuit of exponential growth goals.

Sciolytix began the new year by adding two hires in key leadership roles: David Solot, Ph.D., joins as Chief Science Officer and Senior Vice President of Product Management and Andy Smith as Senior Vice President of Sales.


The executives join Sciolytix as the company celebrates receiving four Brandon Hall awards for experiential learning and a string of successful outcomes for marquee customers.

Reporting directly to CEO Michael Bealmear, Solot will focus on the advancement of the company’s products with an emphasis on key differentiated capabilities in the areas of predictive analytics, AI, and proving ROI.

Smith, reporting to Chief Revenue Officer Nick Rini, will position the sales team to meet the company’s growth objectives.

“We’re on a mission to cause major disruption in the learning tech space,” said Michael Bealmear, Sciolytix Chief Executive Officer. “Traditional training methods have not produced the behavior change needed to achieve the desired results corporate executives are expected to deliver. Our experiential learning solutions address this in a powerful and sustainable manner.  Dave’s knowledge and experience will accelerate the applications of leading edge technologies to our portfolio.”

The Sciolytix relationship with Solot and Smith began last year with consulting engagements. Their contributions to date have been substantial, and they are already synchronized with the team and company’s objectives.

“Andy brings a great deal of sales training industry experience to bear, in addition to his actual sales and leadership abilities,” continued Bealmear. “This is significant for us. Both Dave and Andy are highly regarded in the industry and have already demonstrated tremendous value to us and our clients.”
