With over 20 years in executive search, Doug founded Collingwood in 2005, a professional services consultancy with a new and more personal way of delivering success to our clients. Doug’s international network of senior level executives is a testament to the passion and care for each project he touches.

Outside Collingwood, Doug is focused on spending time with his family, two dogs and sneaking to the golf course when he can. Anfield is also a regular haunt!


"We approached Collingwood Executive Search to assist us in our restructure and expansion. Being a small family owned business we were conscious that we needed to find candidates that would fit into our unique culture as well as have the right skills and experience to help us move forward in our rapid expansion plan.  We found Doug's experience at understanding a small business culture invaluable and we were impressed with his knowledge of the skills we were targeting. We were initially looking for a Production Director with experience of a LEAN environment within a blue chip company but able to implement this in a small, traditional industry.   We were provided with four candidates all with experience of dealing with this in their careers.  We found Doug and Collingwood to be meticulous in their research and were able to target candidates who were an exact fit, both in their skills and experience but also their knowledge of our business and the culture of the industry.  They have also been able to talk knowledgeably about the candidates they have shortlisted and the personality profiling they have conducted has been invaluable in making our decision.  In short, Collingwood have proved to be an excellent recruitment partner, their knowledge of our industry and culture has been excellent, we would recommend Doug and his team to our peers in the business."
