In recent years, our company has grown exponentially and has the ability to travel anywhere in the world. Doug is always willing to make travel plans work to meet our clients’ needs. Where there is an event, we can be there!
As a leader in our company, one thing that is appreciated most about him is his open door policy. Doug is a firm believer in open communication. He is focused on helping our team grow — both personally and professionally. If there is a question, a concern or an idea that pops into your head, Doug will stop what he’s doing to discuss it with you. He is always willing to talk things out to achieve the best result in any scenario.
In his personal life, Doug is husband to Nancy, father to Tyler and Carlee, a collector of watches, a fan of Daft Punk and he enjoys supporting local coffee shops. He spends his evenings supporting his kids in their athletic careers. He is a graduate of the University of Northern Iowa, he currently serves on the board of a local credit union and enjoys traveling with his family.
The Wired Production Group sales team sports “Team Doug” shirts around the office, but everyone in our company is truly #TeamDoug. Without Doug, we would not be where we are today. Thank you, Doug, for your dedication to Wired Production Group!
