Global training solutions for engineers creating the world's electronics

After 30 years Doulos is now employee owned!

June 2022|News

Way back in 2020 Doulos became 30 years old, but owing to the time and dedication of the Doulos staff to continue training the world-wide engineering community through the pandemic, the global team only managed to get together to celebrate this May!

However, there was more than one good reason to raise a glass of champagne…

After more than 30 years of service to the electronics industry, today we are excited to announce that Doulos has become an employee-owned business.

Doulos co-founders, Rob Hurley, Dave Crowder and John Aynsley are handing the baton to the experienced Doulos team to continue serving the next generation of engineers, with Doulos shares being held in an Employee Ownership Trust for the benefit of all employees.

Rob and Dave are now Trustees of the business, while Doulos VP of Marketing and Product Strategy, Jonathan Burden, steps into the role of CEO as we develop into new subject areas, further expand our online services and seek new ways to improve the overall learning experience.

An employee-owned model has tremendous benefits for Doulos customers and partners as it guarantees the continuity of independent training expertise and KnowHow that the business was founded on. It also ensures that the team who made Doulos what it is today, with an ethos of service and integrity, will be the ones who take it forward, focused on delivering the best learning outcomes for everyone we train.

It is also great for existing and future employees as it means the business will always operate in the interest of its staff, as well as providing a profit share scheme that enables team members to share in the rewards of their hard work.

We are incredibly proud to say that Doulos has trained more than 30,000 engineers as an independent technical authority in the system-on-chip, embedded software and security, and AI and deep learning markets. It has been a pleasure and a privilege to work with our customers and partners over this time and we look forward to continuing these relationships as we begin our next exciting chapter.
