Business Development and Growth
Thank you for your support of the past year as we began defining who we are as a company and what we want to become. Your guidance in helping us focus – first, on vision and mission, and then next on our problem/solution/go-to-market strategy – was invaluable. As a CEO and first-time founder, I am working on so many projects and so many aspects of a company, from product to team and sales, and it all happens so quickly! Which means that your help and focus was both incredibly timely and incredibly useful.
Erin Rothman, CEO, StormSensor, a Climate Technology Company
Doug is one the sharpest, quick study executive sales and marketing professionals I have ever met and worked with. His background and experience gives him an expertise in technical/engineering concepts to software product development to sales and marketing team building - all executed in a strategic and sound business approach. His team leadership is exceptional. He understands people and has a drive to open business development opportunities and close on complex business deals.
Gregory Baird, Water Asset Management Executive Advisor; President at Water Finance Research Foundation
I was fortunate to have Doug as a leader on my global team of subject matter experts. I say I was fortunate but those who really benefited were the leaders of some of the most sophisticated companies on the planet. His ability to make the complex understandable and deliver a great ROI to our clients was highly valued. Doug is brilliant, driven, and a strong leader. I hope I have the opportunity to work with him again.
David Olson, former Global Leader, Chemicals & Petroleum/Industrial Products Center of Competence at IBM
Doug has demonstrated a keen understanding of my company’s needs and has been extremely responsive in helping address the environmental data management requirements of our clients. He has a consistently proven deep knowledge of the environmental requirements specifically as they apply to the chemical manufacturing industry.
Mike Dixon, President at Dixon Environmental
Doug successfully applied his extensive knowledge of the environmental industry to all parts of the organization – from enterprise sales and marketing to launching an alliance program and from optimizing the professional services processes to supporting customers’ needs. His passion, enthusiasm and willingness to work across the organization were unprecedented, and I always found Doug’s insight valuable in the many projects we worked on together.
