Doug Marks, Team Ford’s Fleet Manager, thrives on details—because big or small, those details have an enormous impact on life. Whether it be the kind of detail that helps or hinders his clients on the job site, or the kind of details that help out his golf game, Doug is sure to have thought it all through.
Doug worked for 7 years at Enterprise before jumping to Team Ford for the last 15, and his wealth of experience is part of what makes Team Ford’s fleet department so successful. He runs a relatively small shop, and doesn’t manage a ton of people, which means he has to be on his game all the time. This is where that attention to detail is exceptionally important. Doug does his best work in high-pressure, busy settings, and his ability to predict and react to customer and store needs lets him stay one step ahead of the game.
All that attention can wear a guy down, so Doug makes sure to find some time to relax. This often means a weekend visit to his favourite brunch spot, Under the High Wheel, or a round of golf. Even when he’s relaxing, Doug is still focused on all the small details—like tending to an immaculate yard and garden in the city, or planning out renovations and decorating a condo in Palm Springs. His home away from home, Doug and his partner bought a condo in Palm Springs at the right time, thanks to a bit of good luck and a hot tip. Of course, the condo was a disaster inside, but he was quickly able to plan out and execute a major revamp. Now, when he heads out for warmer weather, he can enjoy a nice long bike ride or one of the many restaurants in the area.
So if you’re looking for the best fleet department in Edmonton, or maybe just some Palm Springs recommendations, then come by Team Ford and talk to Fleet Manager Doug Marks. You just tell him what you want, he’ll worry about the details.
