Purlos Continues to Grow! Announces Appointment of Advisor, Ex AOC Chief Executive Martin Doel.
We are incredibly excited to announce that Mr Martin Doel has joined Purlos in an advisory capacity. Martin holds over 20 years’ experience in the Further Education sector and brings with him in-depth knowledge and a keen understanding of the challenges faced by the FE sector, which aligns well with Purlos’s target client base.
Following a 28-year career in the Royal Air Force, which culminated in him serving as Director of Training and Education for the Armed Services, Martin joined the Association of Colleges as their Chief Executive in 2008. In this role he worked closely with the government to develop skills and education policy and was a member of the Apprenticeship Reform Board. He is now a Visiting Professor at UCL Institute of Education, having previously been appointed as the first Professor of Leadership in Further Education and Skills.
In 2016 he was awarded a CBE for his contribution to further education.
Martin Doel: “I’m very excited to be working with Purlos as an innovative company seeking to bring together new communication tools and AI to enhance recruitment in further education and education more broadly.”
Purlos CEO, David Bartlett: “Martin’s experience in Further Education is unparalleled within the industry. His ability to not only spot opportunities but execute them is very impressive, as is his desire to drive innovation and development across the Further Education sector in the UK.
As we come out of Covid-19, there will be large scale changes made to how educational institutions connect and support their students and Purlos will be at the forefront of this change. So it is the perfect fit and I’m very much looking forward to Martin’s input as we continue to transform how educational institutions engage with their students and drive adoption of the Purlos platform both within the UK and globally. We are very lucky to have him on board.”
