Doug is the Director of Operations. A role that Doug has prepared for from the early days of his professional career as an Army Ranger. Prior to MiddleGround, Doug worked for Monomoy Capital as a member of the Operations Team with John and Scot. Doug also worked at Toyota Motor Corporation for 23 years. He graduated from Eastern Kentucky University with a B.S. in Industrial Technology.

Doug has a passion for diversity and inclusion, always reminding the team that it is important to “keep up” with your obligations. Doug enjoys exercising in his underwear, a habit he picked up in the Army over 30 years ago, and playing golf with Yuji and Tyler. Doug’s proudest moment is when he learned that the moon has phases, something recently discovered over 10,000 years ago by cavemen.
