'Doug is a rare breed that falls in the intersection of technology and business, and this makes him extremely valuable to any enterprise. He is strategic and business driven but is also capable of executing at the lowest level. But what impress me most about Doug is his ability to adapt to change and continuously innovate wherever he is positioned. It is truly a pleasure to know and work with Doug.'
  -- Leo Jin, Director of Engineering - Group Benefits At EIS Group Ltd

'The bottom line is Doug knows his stuff, and if he doesn't, he will tomorrow. He is able to figure out even the most complex inexplicable code and then break it down into clear understandable terms for us common folk, and then he will go back and make it better. There is no engineer I would rather work with.'
