"Doug has led a number of YouLaunchU programs for our national youth development non-profit over several years. He’s worked one-on-one with our students, trained some of our mentors on how to guide their students and led job advancement workshops for some of our older alumni grappling with career decisions. In each case, his energy and rapport with our students and alumni have had a great effect on their confidence and commitment to career development."

The Brains of the Operation

Doug graduated from Dartmouth College with a BA in Psychology. While there, he was a multi-sport athlete and an active student on campus. He regrets not taking advantage of the college’s career services office. Upon graduation, he had a brief and miserable professional tennis career before joining a telecommunications start-up soon thereafter. He pursued that field for six years with mixed success before joining Lehman Brothers.
Doug held management positions in the financial industry across an array of disciplines and geographies. He was involved in the hiring process for 30 years and trained lots of new graduates. 
Since leaving finance, Doug has coached over 500 individuals seeking help in the job market. Through individual counseling, college sponsored seminars or youth development non-profit organizations, he has had great success moving his clientele forward. 
Off the clock, he has served on the Piedmont Unified School District Board of Education, the Piedmont Ed Foundation and co-chaired successful school parcel tax campaigns. For 20 years, he’s been a member of the Dartmouth Career Advisory Group focused on athletes and is also an advisor to Fairview Capital, a money management firm in Marin County. Doug has the most fun when he’s working with and for young people. It’s why he’s spent years coaching, sitting on the San Francisco Girls Chorus board, participating in student-led homebuilding trips to Mexico, and harassing his four (adult?) kids.
