    Chris Douglas on… Building a High Performance Culture


    Chris Douglas, 33 Years Old
    V.P. of Marketing, COMP Cams; YEN Member


    Team building. Employee growth. Business success. Without a high-performance culture, it’s unlikely that your company is going to achieve any of these objectives. Nobody knows that more than Chris Douglas, Vice President of Marketing, for COMP Performance Group. At COMP, winning isn’t a sometimes thing – it’s an “always thing” that requires passionate, committed people. How do you get them…? By building a high-performance culture.

    About Chris

    Putting himself through college racing Go-Karts in the World Karting Association, Chris Douglas is no stranger to competition on the race track. In fact, he earned the WKA National Championship with dedication to being the best racer he could be. At the tender age of 23, he soon found himself behind the wheel of Late Models, ASA, and NASCAR Busch Cars as a partner in the Race-On Driving school. It wasn’t long before an even better opportunity came along in 2003 – the chance to work at the fast growing COMP CAMS. With an amazing work ethic, and a passion for the brand, Douglas worked through the ranks at COMP, becoming the Director of Marketing in 2006, and the Vice President of Marketing in 2009.

    In this interview, Douglas gives us insight into COMP’s winning culture, and how you can incorporate some of their principles into your high performance company.

    For most members of the Automotive Restoration Market Organization (ARMO), business slows somewhat at the end of the year, allowing them time to catch up on various projects and plan for the upcoming New Year. This same concept is true for the ARMO Select Committee.

    Having just completed its Long-Range Planning meeting in January, the council now looks forward to carrying out the various tasks scheduled for 2010.
