The Deep Diver

Doug exceeds at deep diving in the figurative way, though he can lay claim to physical feats, triathlons and open water swims too. He delights in the details that drive him from point A to point B, energized equally by the journey and end goal. His curiosity has brought him across the world to places like Shanghai and Buenos Aires. Armed with knowledge of organizational behavior and the world, Doug dives deeply into searches, unearthing insights usually left uncovered. He can always be counted on to deliver all-star candidates—and a great quip or two, as likely to quote Bill Murray as Bill Shakespeare.

Things won are done; joy's soul lies in the doing. William (Bill) Shakespeare
