Doug came to Futura via the MD acquisition in 2008. He explains he loves the floor covering industry as they are the “best customers/ people” in the world! What other industry can you go and visit friends every day and try to help them and us grow our business! When asked about his territory, Doug explains, his territory goes from “North Dakota east past Boston, down to the east coast to Miami and slide west to El Paso and back up to North Dakota”.
In October 2013, Doug made a tough decision to leave Futura to work with a brother in a different industry. Soon after this departure he realized how much he missed so many good things about Futura. The people, the systems, the processes & procedures, the ability to work and think on his own each day made coming back to Futura an easy decision. Doug valued everything about Futura and says he has never worked at such a “good hearted” company where people really care about making a difference! The main lesson Doug learned from his departure was “that grass does look greener sometimes, but it’s still grass”!
Doug appreciates the opportunity every day of being a member of the team at Futura and values the future more than ever! Ken Wells, Sales Manager, said of Doug’s return “After a short leave of absence Doug Mayeux has returned to Futura. All of us at Futura are ecstatic to have Doug back and I’m sure all of Doug’s previous customers feel the same. Doug will assume sales responsibility for floor covering trims in the same territory he previously served.” Welcome back, Doug!
