Chief Marketing Officer - our brand building and growth catalyst
Doug brings both passion and science to everything he does. He can be found leading a creative branding workshop one day, and deeply analyzing conversion funnels to maximize client marketing budgets the next. He is also constantly developing innovative ideas for creative content that helps clients break through the noise and dominate their market.
He is a thought leader who brings content-driven programs to clients to help them establish analyst relationships and the differentiation needed to stand out in a crowded digital world. Strategically, he helps identify the most effective marketing tactics to attain business goals, close more leads, keep customers longer, and create a movement out of a brand to motivate people to engage, act and share.
An expert in paid, owned and earned media, he helps customers develop results-driven strategies for search engine optimization, paid search, banner advertising, email marketing, content marketing and thought leadership programs. He has created and managed such programs for over 300 companies with notable clients like Cal Poly, the San Luis Obispo TBID, Princess Cruises, Cisco, California Closets, Beam Wine Estates, Disney and many more.
A former Walt Disney Imagineer, Doug spends his spare time mentoring start-up businesses at Cal Poly’s Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, helping local businesses and nonprofits through the Small Business Development Center at the Hothouse, and publishing thought-provoking articles on the intersection of business, humanity and the future. When not obsessing over making the world a better place, he loves to cook for friends and explore food and spirits hangouts with his wife and daughter.
