Doug is the proud father of four children, all boys ranging in ages from 8 to 26. He was born in Providence, Rhode Island and grew up in a small town in rural New Jersey. In 1984 Doug’s parents moved to Florida where they settled down in Daytona Beach.
Doug has remained in this area where he has established a reputation for building lasting personal and business relationships which continue to add tremendous value to the community. In 1985 Doug began his career in the direct mail marketing business working in the mailroom. Within two years he became the Mailroom manager and had already become proficient in all of the complex machinery that is used to create, cut, fold, insert, address, and ultimately produce a wide variety of direct mail products.
His early experiences continue to provide him with valuable insight into the operations and work-flow of the direct mail industry. In 1989 Doug was sent to South Korea where he was tasked with setting up the first machine operated direct mail facility in the country. Prior to Doug’s work there, all direct mail was produced by hand. Doug has been the author of countless marketing programs and innovative customer out-reach techniques that have truly revolutionized the direct mail industry.
Continuously learning other facets of the job, Doug found himself joining Midlantic Marketing Solutions in 2003 where he was united with his brother, David. Doug’s vast experience and expertise in all parts of the direct mail industry have made him an invaluable resource to the company and the “go-to” man for all the tough questions!
