Douglas McKeown

Strategic Advisor
Board of Directors Chair

Doug joined Woodard & Curran in 1992 to start-up and lead the firm’s Operations & Management business unit, and he later served as Director of Marketing. In 2007 he became Woodard & Curran’s second CEO, taking the helm from co-founder Al Curran. Under McKeown’s leadership through 2020, the firm’s revenue tripled, employee count grew from 450 to more than 1,100 people serving clients across the U.S., and private ownership expanded to more than a third of the employees. Throughout his career, Doug has worked extensively with clients in the municipal and industrial sectors. He is passionate about the firm’s culture, which is centered around its people first, and is committed to maintaining its success as a privately held firm.

"I’ve always been motivated by the opportunity to work on a wide variety of projects and to problem solve – listening to clients, understanding the market conditions that drive their needs, and then delivering solutions that take care of the concerns they have today and that position them for tomorrow. When you have the chance to see all that we do nationwide you understand the firm’s ability to sustain growth, provide a rewarding work environment for our employees, and make a significant impact in the world we share."
