About Doug

dougDoug founded the business when he decided that it was time to pursue his entrepreneurial dream of running his own business and to apply his 20+ years of experience in business to help small and emerging U.S. Federal Government Contractors grow profitably.

Doug’s career started as a cashier and junior accounting clerk at an auto dealership where he learned about the day-to-day operations of a business that sold both products and services. From there, Doug achieved his CPA and worked for a regional as well as one of the Big “6” accounting firms where he gained experience in audits and reviews of commercial firms, the U.S. Federal Government, NGOs, and State & Local Governments. “Public accounting was a great learning environment,” said Doug, “but I wanted to be involved in the operations of a business instead of just reviewing what had happened. I wanted to make it happen.” Doug moved into the U.S. Federal Government Contracting Advisory Services world and learned quickly that it wasn’t business as “usual”. “The rules and regulations are extensive. From a financial and operational perspective, they add a third dimension to the accounting and to the way business is done.” Doug spent 15 years, primarily in CFO type positions within large U.S. Federal Government Contractors, experiencing the nuances of U.S. Federal Government Contracting Advisory Services and business operations across various markets. Being in the CFO role allowed Doug to be engaged at the strategic level and to participate in planning, managing, and growing the business. “I met some of the smartest and most energetic people in the world, was lucky enough to see the intricacies of dynamic and complex business operations, and participated at the senior level in leading the business through the challenges of profitable growth.” After 20+ years of being an employee, Doug decided that it was time to fulfill his ambition of owning his own business. Doug made the jump and built a business and livelihood using the skills and experiences he learned while also providing them to a client base with a need. “I enjoy meeting the owner and the team, listening to their challenges, and helping them achieve their business dreams.”

In addition to being a QuickBooks® Certified ProAdvisor®, Doug is currently a Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA) and was formerly a CPA.

    Apogee Informatics

    "Before we began working with Kachadorian Consulting, Apogee Informatics had never served a government client. Through the Kachadorian team’s insights, we can now offer our real-time healthcare performance evaluation services to clients like the Department of Defense and government healthcare entities. Kachadorian has even helped Apogee find investor partners – those are results we can literally 'take to the bank.'"
