General Manager NSW & ACT
Doug Grant joined AmCham as General Manager of NSW & ACT in December 2018.
He has over twenty years’ experience working within the finance industry as a Business Development Manager, Broker, consultant and sales and marketing representative.
In that time Doug has built a broad network of business clients and referral partner contacts across most industry sectors through his focus on relationship creation, ongoing relationship management and solutions sales.
Recent activities include non-conforming loan structure and financing solutions outside of mainstream financial industry services, and establishment of referrer partner networks and systems as sources of new business.
His understanding of sales processes, cycles and mindsets has enabled him to quickly establish and build rapport leading to constructive relationships with all business levels, from administrative staff through to senior executives.
Doug is looking forward to engaging with current members and forming new relationships to grow the membership base of valued AmCham business partnerships
