A problem-solver by nature, Doug has a talent for correlating business data and identifying patterns that others overlook. He believes that business owners know better how to solve their problems than anyone else; all they need, he says, is someone to walk them through the process. “I don’t walk in and tell you what you need to do,” he says. “I help you figure out what you need to do.”
In addition to his work with entrepreneurs and high-net-worth individuals, Doug is sought after for his expertise in hedge fund structure and development. He provides an informed and independent perspective on what hedge funds need to build and burnish a trustworthy reputation. Doug also represents U.S.-based subsidiaries of foreign-owned companies. A Virginia Tech graduate, Doug is a father of two, an active outdoorsman and youth soccer coach.

What “In Your Shoes” Means to Me
When I’m asked to give advice to a client, I present it after thinking of the issue as if I were them. This affects not only my conclusion, but also the delivery of information. Their ability to understand, accept, and implement the proposed solution is critical helping them make better decisions faster. To me, “In Your Shoes” is helping people solve problems from their perspective.
