Doug joined Networkology in July 2017 as a Technical Director, bringing a broad base of technical skills and knowledge. Doug is the driving force behind our technical solutions and service offerings and mentors the Networkology engineering team.
Douglas Goodridge is a solutions architect with nearly three decades of experience working with IT. Starting his career as a multi-disciplined helpdesk engineer, Doug soon gained a thirst for more knowledge, qualifications and experience, and this led him to become the UK Operations Manager for one of the UK’s largest homebuilding companies before his 23rd birthday.
A large part of his career has been spent in the financial sector aiding several FTSE100 clients with complex global data, voice and security programmes before moving to the Defence sector in 2010. Douglas joined the ATLAS consortium as a Network Architect delivering complex services to the Ministry of Defence in one of the most extensive IT programmes on record. Using his desire to drive the best out of any project and his vast product knowledge, Doug designed and implemented several solutions that enabled the Ministry of Defence to realise new performance highs without investing in new, critical infrastructure.
Doug maintains qualifications across multiple technologies and vendors, and his passion for IT and drive for perfection leave him well placed to inspire Networkology forwards. Doug continues to expand his knowledge and seek out new challenges in all aspects of life.
