Douglas Gudorf

Top-performing software sales engineer Douglas Gudorf also trains unemployed workers in new software and machine programming to help them find new jobs and actively participates in the larger community through charitable organizations. A resident of Dayton, Ohio, where VMH International, LLC, employs him as one of its top sellers, Douglas Gudorf has taught a series of free seminars on various software applications and programming languages to help electronics workers find employment. In early 2010, VMH sponsored a training seminar in CNC (computer numeric control) machine programming at the Local 755 union hall of the International Union of Electronic Workers in Dayton. The Siemens NX software training seminars lasted 60 days, and several students had a new job or interview lined up by the time the course ended. As a trainer, Douglas Gudorf told a reporter for the Dayton Daily News that he aimed to educate and place as many as 60 workers in CNC operation and programming in the coming year. VMH, which resells product management lifecycle software to companies nationwide, stands to benefit because it has corporate customers in the Dayton region, including the University of Dayton Research Institute, GE Aviation, and Evenflo Co., Inc. Mr. Gudorf helped organize another free seminar offered by VMH at the showroom facilities of Dayton manufacturer Gosiger, Inc., in late 2010. Douglas Gudorf belongs to several professional organizations in Ohio, including the Society of Manufacturing Engineers, the Dayton Tooling and Manufacturing Association, and the Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce. He attends services at Victory Christian Church, and enjoys playing tennis, golf, and chess, as well as hiking, fishing, and camping in his leisure time. Douglas Gudorf played on the tennis team as an undergraduate at Wright State University in Fairborn, Ohio, where he double majored in finance and statistics. He paid for his education by working full time while he attended school.
