Doug’s Favorite Quote:

“Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value”. – Albert Einstein

What is something you have to deal with that you want to fix?

I believe in transparency from start to finish when speaking with clients and performing the work necessary to finish the job. Unfortunately, many times what you will see when having a document scanning job performed by competitors, is the outsourcing of work overseas. In most cases, customers are unaware of this taking place and are unknowingly putting their information at risk. As a previous owner and now as a member of the Williams team, I am fortunate to be able to say that all work is performed locally here in California, and clients can rest assured that their information is safeguarded throughout the whole process.

What is your past experience in your role?

I have approximately 25 years’ experience in the imaging and document management industry. During that time, I have had the pleasure of observing the industry from varying roles. From owner and operator of my own business to being on sales teams, it has always been my mission to provide value.

What’s your background?

The majority of my time spent over the last two decades has been spent in the document imaging and management space. This has included document imaging and management for Canon, Toshiba, Sharp, and also the former owner of The Scanning Company.

What are the values that drive you?

I believe that everyone should strive to give customers the service and value that you would hope someone would give to your own mother.

What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?

In my free time I enjoy the outdoors and eating good food, and of course, spending as much time with my family as possible.
