Doug was born in Schwaigern, Germany and raised in Utah to a close-knit family. He watched his dad take a design and an idea and build it into a successful business. Doug's dad spent 300 days a year on the road, but he'll tell you it wasn't about selling. It was about building relationships. Hal built The Little Giant Ladder Company literally from the ground up, selling the product himself and in-person to customers big and small all over the country.
On his own team, Hal believed that the best gift you could give someone was the gift of opportunity. As a result, The Little Giant Ladder Company has many employees that spent the duration of the career working for Hal and the Wing family at Little Giant.
That gift of opportunity was given the Doug at an early age. Doug worked in all phases of the business, starting in production in his teenage years. Throughout his career, Doug literally worked his way up the Little Giant Ladder.
Sharing the same heart for people as his father, Hal, Doug has more than 40 years of experience in manufacturing, operations, sales, sales leadership and executive management. He was a co-owner and vice chairman at Little Giant Ladder Systems before retiring in 2019.
In 2020, Doug co-founded Boar Investment Group. Boar is involved in real estate rentals and property management.
Doug serves on the board of directors of The Honoring Heroes Foundation, a charitable organization that helps fallen police officers and their families. He also has served two missions for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
Doug lives in Arizona & Utah. He enjoys riding motorcycles, playing golf, reading and fitness. He also enjoys collecting cars and motorcycles.
