Douglas Graham is co-founder and COO of Graham Industrial Coatings. His coatings career starting in 1987 after complaining to his manager that the door paint on the Anacortes, WA Tesoro Refinery job trailers was un-cleanable (Doug was the Janitor). The manager asked Doug what should be done, and Doug volunteered to paint the doors himself to a higher standard. Of course, he knew nothing at the time about paint or painting, but he scrambled and requested help from the Totem Lake, WA Sherwin Williams representative. Doug's bosses were so satisfied with his paint job that they awarded him the entire painting contract for all WMI/Modulaire mobile trailers for the region. These humble beginnings have lead to a successful 30-year career in the protective coatings industry as an entrepreneur and consultant. Doug is passionate about making sure people come first, creating beauty, protecting the environment, making and keeping promises, and faithfully serving the needs of Graham's clients. Doug strives to put faith, family, and people first and encourages his team members to do the same. He is a NACE III Coatings Inspector and Instructor candidate; is an accomplished Alaska Pilot with multiple ratings; has an earned Master's Degree in Management, and has served on many national and international boards towards the advancement of third-world relief and development initiatives.
