Doug, having attained an Economics Degree at Manchester University, joined CWE Reprographics in 1986 and in 1996 was made Sales Director.
Deciding to go at it alone, CWE Solutions was formed in 1999, with Doug wanting a change in direction from CAD to Display Graphics. Under Doug’s stewardship, CWE Solutions has grown from it’s humble £1.8m turnover in 2000 to £13.5m a year in 2012.
Having made the decision to partner with HP in 1999, CWE Solutions has the enviable distinction of selling the first new round of HP Display Graphics and Signage printers from the HP 500 in 1999, to the Latex 3000 in July 2013.
Outside of work, Doug is a keen golfer with a single figure handicap, and a Fulham FC season ticket holder. He has also started Cobham Youth Football, proudly sponsored by CWE Solutions, having currently under 10 and under 8 teams playing in the Epson & Ewell League.
