If you interact with Doug even for a short period of time, it is impossible not to see and feel his seemingly limitless energy. He is a great communicator and a wonderful salesman able to come up with simple stories around concepts and ideas to put his point across. He is very enthusiastic in everything he does and keeps experimenting with new ideas all the time. I consider him to be one of my mentors and a friend that I can count on when in need.
From our first conversation, Doug established a fantastic rapport that made me confident that he would be a candid and trusted person to talk to through the interviewing process. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the industry as a whole, but more specifically about what my new role at Tremor would be, which put me at ease and left me comfortable and confident that I was making the right decision. He was easy going, relatable, and convincing without being pushy. He has a keen sense of what it takes to succeed in this industry, and has played a pivotal role in assembly a top notch team at Tremor that I am proud to now be a part of.
I have known Doug for over 10 years. He is the ultimate professional. He not only excels at Human Resources and Recruiting, but is also a great leader within any operations team. Doug is the person I would recommend for any HR or Operational challenge. He is smart, hardworking and a consummate team player. He is an asset to any organization and I give him my highest recommendation.
Team building and recruiting done right are amongst the most challenging tasks a start-up faces. The market is always tight for great talent so finding, meeting and hiring the best people requires lots of tenacity and time. Doug helped our team exactly in this regard. He organized our process, made suggestions with respect to job descriptions, and followed through till the right people were on-boarded and productive. We would love to work with Doug again and he will always be remembered as a key part of our early development.
I worked with Doug for 2 years while we were at ScreamingMedia. Doug is a human capital visionary and GM type who has what it takes to run a company. He 'gets' business from end-to-end and is able to build high performance teams better than anyone I've ever met. It's a true testament to his work at ScreamingMedia that 7 years after most of us left the company, the level of camaraderie between alumni is immense. As a formal Naval Officer, I know how hard it is to build this sort of lasting culture. What we accomplished at ScreamingMedia, for ourselves, our clients and stakeholders, will always be a part of Doug's legacy.
