From Yuma to Salt Lake City…and Beyond

However, his life has been an adventure that took across multiple locations, including Chicago, IL, Sacramento, CA, Ft. Collins, CO, Jacksonville, FL, Knoxville, TN, and even Edmonton, Canada.

What Excited Doug About Joining All Point Retail?
When asked what excited Doug most about joining All Point, he was quick to answer. “I have so many years of data experience, and the opportunity to bring ‘big gorilla’ reporting to small and medium retailers is extremely motiving. For so many years, there’s been a huge difference between reporting and insights…and huge corporations were the only ones to get the latter. This has changed, and I’m all about helping our clients understand just how much.”

Additionally, Doug served as a Web Developer and Database Programmer for a cabin rental business in the Smoky Mountains of TN, giving him a deep understanding of the reporting needs of small businesses. His diverse skill set also includes ETL development, business intelligence, and data warehousing. Doug is proficient in databases, ranging from Microsoft SQL Server to Oracle, and he is skilled in using various development tools like C#, ASP.NET, and Qlikview.
A Hidden Talent
Only a hand full of people know this, but Doug once donned the role of an equipment manager for his university’s football team. Not only did it provide him with a one-of-a-kind insight into the sport, but it also showcased his sharp thinking—it gave him free sideline access to all home games! Now, that’s what we call a game-changer! 😉
We extend a warm welcome to Doug and look forward to the valuable contributions he will bring to our team and clients! To connect with Doug and learn more about his journey and expertise, please visit his LinkedIn profile here.
