The Bottom Line focuses on the human story behind building and running a successful company in Utah. The personal journey of its founders and leaders, the hard work, the tough decisions, the temporary setbacks and the occasional lucky breaks that all weave together to become part of the company’s fabric – its culture and its voice – that ultimately leads to the team’s success. Our goal is to bring the audience along on an intelligent, thought provoking conversation that is more about the journey than the destination.

Doug is currently a Vice President and Member of Investment Committee with Albion Financial Group. Doug earned an MBA from Stanford University and a B.S. in Engineering from Purdue University. He also co-hosts a program with KPCW, in Park City, called Mountain Money.
