Doug Pierce will oversee the growth of DMG/Mori Seiki University, which had its biggest year in 2012.
DMG/Mori Seiki USA has promoted Doug Pierce as its new chief learning officer.
Pierce will oversee all functions of the company’s online university, instructor-led classes, and the apprentice programs of DMG/Mori Seiki University (DMSU).
“This opportunity is very exciting,” says Pierce, who previously served as DMG/Mori Seiki’s manager of educational operations.
“What excites me most is the chance to build on a terrific foundation established…here at DMSU,” he says.
DMSU delivered 170,000 hours of global training in 2012 – more than the previous 5 years combined. Pierce attributes the growth to supply and demand.
“We are seeing a demand for employee, distributor and machine-customer training, so we increased the availability and efficiency of the university systems – specifically with online curriculum offerings,” he says.
