Doug attended the University of Wisconsin and spent over a decade working in the fitness industry. Outside of work, you'll find him spending time with his wife and dog, watching the NFL, following politics, weightlifting, and playing Magic: The Gathering. We asked Doug to reflect on his time at Kipsu so far.
What drew you to Kipsu in contrast to other companies?
The motto "We Build Relationships." A tech company with such a human focus at its core stood out to me in a BIG way.
What were some things you noticed about the Kipsu team during your first week?
The positive culture—people join fun! Kipsu makes everything fun!
What challenges are you looking forward to tackling in your work at Kipsu?
I'm brand new in this industry, so that transition and learning experience is fun and exhilarating!
What is your favorite Kipsu core value and why?
Think Customer First. I always remind myself that we don't exist without our partners. We are here to serve them!
If you could pick any person for a chat over a shared dinner, who would you pick and why?
My childhood hero was Arnold Schwarzenegger. He's been a high achiever in all that he has pursued. Since starting out in the 1970s he has matured a lot and seeks to give back now more than ever. He has also made a lot of mistakes and then had to learn, evolve, and grow from them.
