This week’s team spotlight features our Warehouse Manager Doug! Doug has been a part of the Duvall Catering & Events team since 2015. Starting out as a server, bartender and event manager for several years, he finally found his perfect place as our go to organizer, packer and inventory keeper in his current role as Warehouse Manager. Doug makes sure every party goes out on time and with everything needed for success – something we simply could not do without!
What is your dream job?
Anything that would pay me to travel and write. I want to go out west, to Colorado and Utah, and see all the national parks out there. Then I would love to go to Southeast Asia!
What are you known for?
I think people would say I’m always trying to have fun and a good time. Also, my sense of humor.
What do you like to do in your free time?
In my free time I enjoy working out/running, reading, trying out new recipes, and spending time with friends. We love to hang out anywhere near or on the water!
What is your favorite thing(s) on our menu?
We have wicked good empanadas, also I’m never disappointed with our flatbreads.
What do you love most about your current position and our industry?
I enjoy knowing I had a direct impact in the overall success of all the events; wedding or corporate, large and small.
You step outside the office and find a lottery ticket that ends up winning $10 million. What would you do?
I would make sure my parents can retire comfortably, then I would travel all over the world. I should probably invest some of it, too!
What food are you? Why?
I would have to say pizza, because there are so many different combinations, plus I’m pretty cheesy.
What was the first sign you encountered that you were in the right industry?
I have worked in F&B for as long as I can remember. Although I have jumped around within the industry, I always find myself coming back to Duvall!
