What I Do
Doug has a keen sensibility about him and knows how to maximize the abilities of his team. He leads with solid direction and knows how to encourage those that work for him to be unafraid to make mistakes and how to be independent enough in what they do so that each minute is not spent asking 'Doug, is this ok?'. He sets expectations and will praise you for achieving them or take time to discuss the shortfall if you do not. He is a great mentor and sees everyone for what they have within them to become.
Doug Cockerham was a development manager in my organization for several years. Simply put, he's an excellent manager. He finds creative solutions to technical problems in addition to being an excellent people leader. He's always cool under pressure and never loses site of strategic objectives. I'd have Doug in my organization again any time.
Doug is very detail oriented and ensures that the end product exceeds expectations. His knowledge has been a life saver in more than one instance. Doug's level of creativity leads to a product never imagined. Driving traffic to my site is crucial to my business and I greatly appreciate Doug's efforts to make sure this happens. A true asset!!!
