Congratulations to Doug Wotherspoon, EMBA 2013, on his new role as Executive Director, Business Development at Algonquin College.
“I suspect it is not often that someone asks for a demotion in their career however this was my request and my Telfer Executive MBA experience is to blame. Going back to school in your early 50’s is not the norm. My time in the Telfer Executive MBA program re-ignited a passion for learning, so much that I have now decided to work toward a PhD. Given the time commitment, I stepped down from my VP role at Algonquin and took on a new position that allows me to go deep into the fields of Corporate Training, Co-operative Education and Workforce Development, while allowing me a few more hours for my studies.”
Doug has spend the last 11 years with Algonquin College in various roles, including VP roles in Innovation & Strategy as well as International and Strategic Planning.
Congratulations Doug. We wish you gerat success in your new role at Algonquin College as well as in your PhD studies.
