Co-Founder & CEO
Doug Dawson is co-founder and CEO of The Dawson Group and ParcelShield Holdings, LLC. With over 25 years in the industry, Doug has written the book on logistics management in pharmaceuticals and healthcare, forging a powerhouse in global custom supply chain management: Dawson Healthcare Solutions.
Doug’s logistics experience began as a collegiate intern for United Parcel Service. On graduating, Doug expanded his logistics experience, spending several years with RPS and FedEx in operations and business development. After being recruited by a regional logistics provider to provide strategic consulting services, in addition to designing and launching a small parcel delivery platform with bulk drop ship functionality, Doug developed a national retail distribution model for a start-up, Hawaiian based, organic chocolate company. Upon completion of that project, Doug co-founded The Dawson Group, the parent of Dawson Healthcare and Dawson Logistics. The original business model, which he still stands by today, is to provide clients with custom supply chain / logistics solutions, to improve efficiencies and visibility, and reduce overall expense.
Doug currently serves on a number of industry advisory councils and associations.
