He gained his impressive knowledge of recruiting and workforce impacts while serving as Manager of Global Recruiting at Valero where he managed the organization's hiring processes as the company grew from $2 billion to $95 billion in revenue. He did so by combining his extensive knowledge and experience in supply chain management with workforce planning and strategy. He then productized his ideas and analytics to form OrcaEyes' flagship product SonarVision and has since been the recipient of multiple awards from industry analysts and media outlets.
Doug and his wife founded The Scooter Store in 1991 and grew quickly to become the nation's largest scooter and power wheelchair provider.
