Doug Nichols

Client Advocate/Project Manager

I am a Client Advocate/Project Manager. That means I am the voice of the client in matters ranging from contracts and strategic planning to production expectations. And I monitor the progress and quality of projects as they move through production.

I see leadership as the most important skill I bring to my role. My clients know that I'm a true partner—taking to heart what's in their best interests. I then use that passion for helping clients to lead my teammates with confidence and encouragement. Together we exceed expectations.

I really enjoy collaborating with production team members. I feel very gratified when I get the opportunity to share my thoughts and knowledge of client preferences with the design team in particular.

Doug: Lived in San Diego for 23 years but never tried surfing. Still roots for the San Diego Chargers. First worked in sales for Coffey—which was a great way to learn about what clients want.
