Doug Levinson is one of the most insightful and energetic strategists I know; he takes the time to understand the business desires of the entrepreneur or C Level executive and jumps in with both feet.
Kent Seton, Esq., Managing Partner Seton & Associates, PLC
As a small family business owner, it is exceedingly difficult to find any service providers that are both willing and able to treat my business with the level of care and integrity that we use to guide our principals and decisions. Doug and his colleagues, however, are unique in that they recognize businesses are about people and intangible factors that cannot always be quantified, and that successful consulting strategies cannot simply be guided by annual reports. We love working with them and highly recommend them and their approach.

Doug Levinson (and Strategy that Rocks) are consistently brilliant. Ferociously smart. Relentlessly strategic. When it comes to navigating our growth, there’s no one we’d rather have in our corner.
Harry Nelson, Managing Partner, Fenton Nelson, LLP/Founder, Compliasense, Inc.
I have known Doug Levinson for many years and have found him to be one of the most intelligent, conversational, strategic-thinking professionals that I have ever known. Doug has a way of seeing opportunity when many see either a brick or blank wall, and is able to convert that vision into a strategy that is pertinent and specific to the task at hand.
Bob Pearlman, Partner, Assurance Business Line Leader, BDO
Doug is an enigma wrapped in a puzzle…While not exactly Winston Churchill, Doug Levinson is the epitome of smart, savvy, and sassy. He will challenge you and your business plans, while at the same time making tipping point suggestions seemingly out of nowhere. That is how his brain fires, and it most often hits the mark. Whenever I need a checkup or a direct response to a business quandary, I only go to Doug. You should do likewise.
Davis Blaine, Founder Provisors, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer, The Mentor Group and Mentor Securities
Doug brings that terrific blend of passion and creative know-how that makes you want him on your team. Let’s just say if I were stranded on the moon, he’d be among the first resourceful guys I’d call to help figure out a way to get me home. And we’d enjoy ourselves in the process!
Julie Grass, President, The Momentum Group
It has been my pleasure to have formed both a personal and professional relationship with Doug Levinson, one that has stretched over the last three decades or so. I originally worked with Doug as an expert witness when he had his own law practice. Never have I met someone who was both incredibly knowledgeable and also wonderfully gifted as a personable and competent attorney. Doug is gifted with an incredible memory and is technically proficient in numerous areas. The last decade or so, while Doug has been involved in numerous start-ups, going concerns and businesses in trouble, I have marveled at his brilliant insights into whatever company or project with which he has been involved. He has the ability to take in an enormous amount of information, reduce it to its most basic message, delineate numerous avenues of additional potential merit and then advise as to how best execute whatever plans are necessary to achieve the goal. Doug has clearly demonstrated his “out-of-the-box” thinking which has paid off handsomely to numerous of his clients.

In 1995 my soon to be business partner and I decided we wanted to open our own advertising/design firm so we turned to Doug Levinson for his guidance. Since that day Doug has always been there for us, ready to share his invaluable knowledge and awesome motivation. It’s been 17 years since that first strategic meeting. We are a proud multi-million dollar small business with 9 full time employees and continue to grow stronger every year. We are, and will forever be, grateful for our relationship with Doug.

Doug is a very creative business strategist. When he works on an assignment he not only learns everything he can about the business, but also about the people behind the business. He knows what makes a business tick and how to make it tick even better. The clients love him and the results are great.
Bruce D. Andelson, Corporate Partner, Greenberg & Glusker
Doug Levinson is absolutely brilliant. His unique ability to cut right to the core of a critical business or legal issue is matched only by his deep and abiding passion, energy and devotion to his clients, colleagues and friends. I can’t say enough great things about Doug. He lights up any room that he walks into — and I would recommend him to any client for a truly brilliant and honest assessment of their business strategy and needs.
