If you want to learn what it’s like to build a massively successful business from the ground up, then you’re not going to want to miss this week’s episode of The Alden Report where I’m very happy to welcome entrepreneur, author, business consultant and speaker Doug Wing. Doug has a unique background that includes every area of business while helping to nurture and grow a very successful business and team to the worldwide category leader that it is today.
Doug learned the value of hard work and the importance of family at a very young age while watching and then working alongside his father, Hal Wing, who founded and grew the company Little Giant Ladder Systems into the category leader that it is today. Doug watched his father take a design and an idea and build The Little Giant Ladder Company literally from the ground up, selling the product himself and in-person to customers big and small all over the country. His father instilled in Doug his belief system, his commitment to excellence and his thirst for innovation as he built a firm foundation for the company based on strong work ethic, professional integrity and belief in people that made Little Giant the household name that it is.
Before retiring as a co-owner and vice chairman at Little Giant Ladder Systems, Doug accumulated more than 40 years of experience in manufacturing, operations, sales, sales leadership and executive management. Today, Doug is a co-founder of the real estate rentals and property management company Boar Investment Group and serves on the board of directors of The Honoring Heroes Foundation, a charitable organization that helps fallen police officers and their families.
Also an author, Doug expounds on the growth and success of the Little Giant Ladder company in his latest book GIANT SUCCESS: Leadership And Business Strategies Of Hal Wing Founder Of Little Giant Ladders which is available now everywhere.
Thank you so much to Doug Wing for joining us this week on The Alden Report.
