Doug Hawkins has over 25 years experience leading initiatives to improve profitability, productivity, and building self-sustaining business enterprises. Comfortable in the boardroom and also on the factory floor, he has led teams at all organizational levels and across many industries. His experience includes major P&L responsibilities at a multi-national automotive parts manufacturer with sales in excess of $2.0 billion. Doug also held numerous management positions responsible for business development, strategic planning, mergers and acquisitions, product management, quality processes, and organizational development. In addition, Doug has worked with many privately held companies, helping business owners achieve their personal goals for their businesses.
In 1999 Doug founded his own consulting firm, now known as Big Gear Business Advisors Inc., providing management expertise to privately owned companies with sales revenue up to $20 million. Doug’s specialty is collaborating with his clients to install business infrastructure, leadership methods, and management processes to achieve self-sustaining businesses that function smoothly, consistently, and profitably, freeing clients from the day-to-day operations, so they can confidently spend more time outside their business enjoying life, and enjoy owning a more valuable and sellable asset.
His other accomplishments with many satisfied clients include building self-sustaining enterprises, maximizing business value, defining exit strategies, designing and implementing profit improvement plans, managing and executing profit turnarounds, restructuring debt, analyzing strategic options, developing business plans, securing growth financing, implementing work process improvements, and establishing management accountability processes. Doug has advised hundreds of business owners and executives, and takes great joy in their successes. Doug is also a facilitator of 3to5 clubs, created by Crankset Group of Denver, where dozens of his clients work in a committed peer-to-peer setting to build mature, self-sustaining businesses to support their ideal lifestyles.
