Douglas P. Fish is the Founder, Steward and CEO of Fish Stewarding Group.
Under this umbrella company, Doug also carries the same title for FSG Messaging and Optics, Fish Equipping and Learning Centers, FSG Realty LLC and Liberating Water Directive.
At this stage in his life, Doug’s focus and objective is to take his life’s lessons of ups and downs and serve others by coming along side to build up businesses and to build up people. His international exposure and outlook allow him a platform to recognize authentically sound people and opportunities to build authoritative businesses throughout the world.
Educated as an accountant, Doug received his CPA status while working for Ernst & Young (EY) with local and global clients. His time with EY opened the door for his tenure at adidas America which was then furthered by living and working in Germany with adidas-Salomon AG, the adidas brand parent company. His finance, operations, acquisition and treasury functions eventually led Doug to roles as an international marketing executive and Head of Business and Process Planning while living abroad.
Upon returning to living life back in America, Doug’s transfer to a marketing and ad agency afforded him the opportunity to lead teams as a Marketing Firm Executive for clients such as BMW, Michelin Group, Milliken, Palmetto Bank and Cliffs Communities.
Although corporate life proved to be his initial path, the ever present entrepreneurial spirit and love for serving people continued to be his guide to think outside the box and develop people along the way. Owning his own Realty Firm was a significant step for Doug when he focused his efforts on the high-end land development and sales of over 25,000 Carolina acres in sales, management, infrastructure, construction, housing, commercial, tourism and financing arenas.
Bringing everything in his life under the concept of Stewarding for both his charity and business efforts, Doug learned by wrestling with the tough questions that serving through stewarding provides a means of coming along side for the benefits of others to teach, build, consult, coach and develop. His lifetime work in missions and not-for-profits has never ceased. Business projects and initiatives have more recently included: Private Equity and Strategist for senior care, education and special needs projects; Finance Modeling andFiduciary responsibilities for multiple start-ups and established business expansions; Interim C-Suite Liaison for numerous organizations focused on Business Development, Strategy, Marketing and Sales.
Doug will be first to tell his story that life is a journey full of twists, turns, serving, repenting and forgiving. Doug believes there is a purpose in everything and that the greater the foundation, the higher the edifice. So as Doug likes to say: Enjoy the build. Enjoy people. Dream big.
