Doug has over 20 years of professional accounting, finance, and business leadership experience in a wide range of industries. After graduating from Illinois State University with a B.S. in Accounting and passing the C.P.A. exam, Doug went directly into a “corporate environment” in a Fortune 100 company learning about virtually every accounting discipline.
Not only did he gain knowledge in large multi-national corporations, but he also has a proven track record in a wide variety of businesses including gaining valuable experience in startups as well as in turn-around environments. He brings strong relationships with business partners such as banks, CPA firms, insurance brokers, and other financial, legal, and human resource partners.
His extensive experience includes business strategy and decision-making, company rightsizing, team rebuilding, transitions to profitability, refinancing, and mergers/acquisitions. His most recent role prior to joining Recycle1 was serving as Director of Finance and Operations at Ebay.
Doug has a passion for the environment and the outdoors and is thrilled to be working in an industry that does its part to help save the planet. When he isn’t at work you may find him on a hike or a jeep ride with his wife and three children. He resides in Gilbert, Arizona; a Phoenix suburb.
