261. Episode #131: Thomas Douglas on technology in your business and the importance of making the right hires

On today’s episode of the Entrepreneur Evolution Podcast, we are joined by Thomas H. Douglas. Thomas H. Douglas is the Chief Executive Officer of JMARK, an award-winning innovative IT solutions provider for organizations of all sizes. Thomas has led his company to 9 consecutive appearances on the Inc. 5000, something only 1% of CEOs who make the list ever achieve. He became a part of JMARK designing, building, and maintaining its functional aspects as an entry-level engineer before purchasing the company in 2001.

As JMARK's CEO, he formulated processes that provided repeatable outcomes and a predictable revenue stream that placed JMARK on a growth trajectory that up to this day, is revolutionizing the region's engagement with technology. JMARK has been providing I.T. support services in Missouri, Oklahoma, and Arkansas for 30 Years; catering to various industries such as banking, healthcare, hospitality, manufacturing, transportation, accounting, legal, and oil, and gas.

Thomas has seen it all as a father, veteran, business leader, and technologist. He visited 18 countries when he served in the US Navy and is also publishing a book entitled Adapt or Die, which explores Thomas' algorithm of success. The algorithm is built on more than 30 years of lessons and business acumen that Tom has acquired through his tenure as CEO. He has now compiled his wisdom in order to provide the next generation of business leaders a launch pad to help them understand and determine product innovation, business strategy, growth, sales and marketing models, organizational strengths, operations, and processes.

With his vast experience, Thomas is also a trusted technology adviser to international clients. He is an innovator in managed services and an engaging speaker on various topics like Executive Strategies, Entrepreneur Tactics, Technology Trends, IT Maturity Methodologies, Cybersecurity, and all Leadership and Technology related subjects.
