Doug FletcherDoug Fletcher has 25 years of business development experience in management consulting.  Now, he splits his time between coaching and teaching others the craft of business development.  Doug coaches consultants and professional service providers on how to grow their individual practices by applying the business development lessons in How Clients Buy.

In addition to his coaching work, Doug teaches business strategy at the Jake Jabs College of Business & Entrepreneurship at Montana State University. He also serves on the board of directors of The Beacon Group, a growth strategy consulting firm headquartered in Portland, Maine.

From 1999 to 2014, Doug was co-founder and CEO of North Star Consulting Group. North Star is a technology-enabled consulting firm that specializes in global web-survey projects. Earlier in his career, Doug was a consultant at A.T. Kearney, the management consultancy, and was trained at General Electric in its leadership development program.

Doug earned an MBA from the Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia, and a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Clemson University.

Doug Fletcher is simply a catalyst for good business decision making. Doug has always been able to provide a new perspective for even the most difficult business situations faced by today’s leaders. It is his willingness to gather and listen to the perspectives from all parties that allows Doug to provide the sound counsel which guides organizations successfully forward. I highly recommend Doug.
