Our Guest:

Doug Packard
Lead Your Journey

Douglas A. Packard (CEO/Owner)  gained over 20 years of leadership and management experience before starting his consulting practice in 2001.  He had success in a number of different positions in the information processing industry including Account Manager, District Manager, Domestic Marketing, International Product Management and Strategic Planning.  He was involved in multiple industries, worked with businesses of all sizes, and traveled extensively worldwide.

During one especially rewarding period, Doug helped develop an innovative Customer Relationship Management Process that included  cross-functional/cultural teams.  As a result of this effort, customer satisfaction levels and revenues were increased sharply and Doug became inspired by the breakthrough learning that took place in teams made up of members with diverse backgrounds.  This experience was pivotal to Doug learning that a fresh set of eyes, coming from a different perspective, can make a world of difference when trying to take a relationship, a project, a product line, or an entire business, to the next level of success.

During periods with two different Fortune 1000 companies, Doug held strategic positions in which he managed relationships with numerous outside consultants.  Through this experience Doug formed his beliefs and  values about “The way consulting should be!”

In 2001, Doug opened his practice with Renaissance Executive Forums and dedicated himself to helping top executives and business owners accelerate their success. He organizes and leads custom designed peer groups, provides individual coaching, and helps leaders increase the effectiveness of their management teams.

Doug is a member of:

Doug writes a column for Mainebiz called “Views from the top – Issues facing top leadership“.  He is a volunteer mentor and resource for MCED (Maine Center for Entrepreneurial Development). He also recently participated on a CEO panel at Mainebiz‘ Maine Momentum Convention.

You can find Doug and learn more about him on LinkedIn.

Doug is headquartered in Portland, Maine with his wife Mary, three sons, and their dog Frankie. He enjoys golfing, skiing, and traveling.
